Colin Johnston – Operations Director at Drygate Brewing Co. – explained more:

“As a young craft brewery, it’s an honour to host so many of our peers here at Drygate.

“From day one, we’ve been inspired by the spirit of collaboration, something that resonates with Craft Beer Rising and this new wave of cultural craft beer festivals that absorb elements such as music and food into the mix.

“The opportunity to experience new things and exchange ideas – for festival goers and exhibitors alike – is really exciting.”

Craft beer rising founder Daniel Rowntree added:

“A thriving craft beer community and world renowned music scene made Glasgow an obvious choice for Craft Beer Rising’s first foray outside of London.

“As the UK’s first experiential brewery, Drygate shares our pioneering attitude and an ethos of collaboration and creativity. We’re thrilled to have found such an ideal venue for Craft Beer Rising in Scotland.

“The line up might just be our best yet. Get your tickets before it’s too late!”
