Scotland’s biggest craft beer festival announces its full line-up, promising a weekend of beer, street food and music in Glasgow's city centre.
Hosted in collaboration with Drygate Brewing Co, the Craft Beer Rising festival is expected to attract over 2000 people.
The event will run from Friday, September 4, to Saturday, September 5, bringing together beer, music and street food under one roof.
Taking place across three sessions, revellers can look forward to sampling up to 150 beers from 30 local and international breweries.
Music at Craft Beer Rising will focus on some of the country’s best DJ talent including headline shows from DJ Food on Friday and a Friendly Fires DJ set on Saturday.
Saturday will also feature a support set from Horseman.
A Scottish street food offering inspired by sustainable and seasonal produce is set to include Scottish cheeses, smoked salmon salads and even seaweed soups.
Served fresh from the Rabbie’s Highland Bothy, it is hoped that the locally sourced menu might inspire festivalgoers to try their hand at beer and food pairing.
Babu Kitchen, Ugly Burger, Burger Bear, The Meat Merchants and Little Jack Horner complete the street food line-up.
Craft Beer Rising founder, Daniel Rowntree, shared his excitement ahead of the festival’s second year in Glasgow.
He said: "Craft Beer Rising Glasgow was our fastest selling event to date, which is remarkable given that the festival began in London.
"What this tells us is that there is an incredible appetite for craft beer in Scotland and opportunities where lots of different types of people, from adventurous foodies to craft beer novices, can come together, share experiences and get involved.
"Drygate proved to be the perfect venue for the festival – which is why we’re coming back for seconds.
"The fact that Drygate is committed to creating a craft beer experience for everyone, no matter where you are on that journey, completely resonates with Craft Beer Rising and our mission to create an immersive and unforgettable festival experience, quite unlike any other."
