This one is for all those who enjoy the lesser known beers according to staff at Car Hire Glasgow Airport and are delighted the organisers chose the city to host it.
It is expected over 3,000 people are to attend Craft Beer Rising, hosted by the newest brewery in Glasgow, Drygate between 19th-21st September. The festival will celebrate street food, music and beer under one roof across four sessions.
People will be able to sample up to 200 beers from 45 local and international breweries and along with the food and beer, there will be talks and demonstrations including live brewing from a collective of breweries.
Craft Beer Rising founder Daniel Rowntree said “Born out of a desire to create a culturally awesome beer festival, Craft Beer Rising is about discovery and adventure as well as creating an environment where everyone – from adventurous foodies to music lovers, craft beer novices to aficionados – can get involved. When looking for a location outside of London, we were instantly drawn to Glasgow. The city’s emerging craft beer scene is hugely exciting and is something that breweries from all over the world want to be a part of. Craft Beer Rising has traditionally been held within the walls of a brewery; our festival at Drygate being no exception. Not only is Drygate one of the coolest places to experience craft beer in Scotland, it’s also powered by a collective of people who share the same ethos as us – to take people on an immersive journey through craft beer culture and beyond.”
On the music front the line-up will include electro funk DJ Greig Wilson as it’s headline act. Tickets are on sale at £20.
