Don’t worry it’s not full of boring beardies, there’s a mixed crowd of people attending who have a love of beer in common.  There will be local Glasgow brewers, gypsy brewers and beer from abroad. Welsh brewery Loka Polly will be joining the festival, alongside Shindigger from Manchester and Dark Revolution Brewery from Salisbury.
