Scotland's biggest collaborative beer festival is returning to Glasgow for a second year.

Craft Beer Rising will kick off at the Drygate on Friday, September 4.

The two day festival, which is being hosted in collaboration with Drygate Brewing Co, offers a blend of craft beer, Scottish street food and live music.

Festivalgoers will be able to sample up to 150 beers from 30 local and international breweries, including William Bros, Innis & Gunn, West, Wooha, Belhaven and Drygate as well as street food offerings inspired by sustainable and seasonal Scottish produce.

Over 2,000 people are expected to attend the event. The festival's return coincides with the Scottish Government's year of food and drink campaign, which seeks to raise awareness of Scotland produce.

Daniel Rowntree, founder of Craft Beer Rising, said: "Craft Beer Rising Glasgow was our fastest selling event to date; which is remarkable given that the festival began in London.

"What this tells us is that there is an incredible appetite for craft beer in Scotland and opportunities where lots of different types of people - from adventurous foodies to craft beer novices - can come together, share experiences and get involved. 

"Drygate proved to be the perfect venue for the festival - which is why we're coming back for seconds! The fact that Drygate is committed to creating a craft beer experience for everyone - no matter where you are on that journey - completely resonates with Craft Beer Rising and our mission to create an immersive and unforgettable festival experience, quite unlike any other."

Colin Johnston, Drygate's Operation Director, added: "We're delighted to be hosting Craft Beer Rising's return to Scotland.

"As a craft brewery powered by the spirit of collaboration, we welcome any opportunity to work more closely with other breweries; sharing knowledge, experiences and our passion for craft beer along the way."

Tickets for Craft Beer Rising, priced £12, are available from the festival's website.
