For a while, it looked as though this weekend’s Beer Makes Glasgow event might not happen.
But fear not. We will not go drouthy this weekend as it has risen from the ashes and is back on.
Taking place in the Art School on Friday 25th and Saturday 26th August, there will be drinks from fine brewers such as Alechemy, Dead End Brew Machine, Drygate, Fallen, Fyne Ales, Gallus, Grunting Growler, Out of Town, Six Degrees North, Tempest, Up Front Brewery and Thistly Cross Cider.
The event is not-for-profit, with funds going to Drumchapel Food Bank.
Drink in Glasgow: Banfi wine lunch
If you prefer Banfi wine to beer, you may prefer the wine lunch at Chez Mal in Malmaison on Saturday 26th August.
Italian wine maker Castello Banfi visited the Glasgow hotel last year and the event was so popular that he’s back for round two.
Mr Banfi founded the largest and most successful estate in Montalcino. In fact, some say that he revolutionised winemaking in this part of Italy.
Starting from noon, the event comprises a wine tasting and three course, Tuscan-inspired lunch.
