Glasgow Real Ale Festival returns in June
Glasgow’s Real Ale Festival will return this June after a three-year hiatus due to COVID-19, taking place at the Briggait in the Merchant City from 16-18 June.
The Glasgow Real Ale Festival features award-winning real ales from Skye Brewing, Overtone, Broughton, and dozens more from across the British Isles. With an international bar featuring beers from some of the best breweries around the world, beer fans will be spoiled for choice.
“The last few years have been tough for our independent brewers,” says Jonathan Kemp from Glasgow and West of Scotland Campaign for Real Ale, organisers of the festival.
“It’s great to be back in Glasgow, giving visitors a chance to sample some of the best real ales in the world, including many rarely seen in Glasgow. With halves and thirds of pints available, it’s easy to sample lots of different styles.”
The festival will also feature real ciders, perries and mead, as well as a dedicated gin bar showcasing brand new gins from Skye and other signature gins from across the country and beyond. With wine, soft drinks and great food – including vegetarian and vegan options – from independent local food stalls, there will be something for everyone to try.
This is the seventh time Glasgow has hosted this beer festival, with previous events going from strength to strength.
