ale, lager, stout, porter, mild, barley wine – the list is almost endless!

Sheffield Food Festival

4 July 2011 - 10 July 2011

With a star brewing cast list that includes the likes of Kelham Island and Thornbridge Brewery, it was perhaps inevitable that Sheffield’s Food Festival would embrace the ale with verve and vigour.

It didn’t take long – only in its second year and the Festival is laying on brewery tours, ale trails, events – including an appearance from the effervescent Beer Beauty herself, Marverine Cole – plus a Beer Festival in the Peace Gardens over the weekend.

Craft Beer Rising at Drygate

19 September 2014 - 21 September 2014

Craft Beer Rising is landing in Scotland and it’s joining with Glasgow’s newest Cathedral of good beer, Drygate Brewery.

If you are in the trade, take advantage of the Trade Day on Friday 19 September, 12-5pm, to savour beers from over 40 breweries at the dedicated trade session.

And for those of us social drinkers, the Craft Beer Rising main event kicks off at 6pm on 19 September, running through until Sunday 21 September. In true Glasgow fashion, the evening sessions run nice and late – to 1am.
