Drygate First Birthday Weekender

Drygate are preparing to celebrate its first birthday with a beer-inspired project led by graduates of The Glasgow School of Art.

The official unveiling will take place this weekend at Drygate’s Birthday Weekender – a free event taking place on Friday 29th & Saturday 30th May, featuring live music, guest craft brewers, stallholders and art installations.

Prints from six chosen artists will be used as limited edition signed wrappers for Drygate’s birthday beer – APEX: Peak 1 – as well as being displayed throughout the brewery space.

Only 2,400 bottles of the 7.3% ABV saison-hybrid have been produced; retailing at £10 a bottle.

Designed to sum up the brewers’ learning and experimentation from Drygate’s first year, APEX: Peak 1 will begin a series of beers charting the brewery’s commitment to pushing the boundaries and taking beer drinkers on a journey from the everyday to the exceptional.
