More than 3,000 people are expected to turn up and sample beers from more than 35 of the world’s leading craft breweries.
Local brewers such as WEST, Williams Bros. and Fyne Ales will be dispensing brews alongside international favourites including Sierra Nevada, Blue Moon and Bellerose.
Burger Bear of London, Meat Hook (sausage specialists), Meat Merchant (authentic biltong) and Aye Love Real Food (rare breed Scotch eggs) will provide a street food-inspired menu.
There will also be beer cocktails and live collaborative brewing.
Music at Craft Beer Rising will focus on local talent. Headline acts include Glasgow club legends Optimo on Friday, a hip-hop set from Mia Dora on Saturday afternoon, and producer The Revenge on Saturday night.
Mungo’s HiFi, followed by DJ Andy Smith (Portishead, Prodigy) and Boca45, will wrap-up Sunday’s event.
Colin Johnston – Operations Director at Drygate Brewing Co. – explained more:
‘As a young craft brewery, it’s an honour to host so many of our peers here at Drygate.
‘From day one, we’ve been inspired by the spirit of collaboration, something that resonates with Craft Beer Rising and this new wave of cultural craft beer festivals that absorb elements such as music and food into the mix.
‘The opportunity to experience new things and exchange ideas – for festival goers and exhibitors alike – is really exciting.’
