Edinburgh’s Jump Ship created an alcohol free lager which was named as the best in the world at the World Beer Awards in 2021, and in 2022, the brewery will showcase their award-winning hops at Glasgow Craft Beer Festival. The alcohol free brewery was the brainchild of founder Sonja Mitchell , born from a love of beer and hatred for hangovers. The brewery has gone from strength to strength since its inception in 2019, creating no-alcohol fruity summer sours and lively lagers.
Established as the UK’s first exclusively gluten-free craft brewery, Bellfield Brewery will bring their expansive list of gluten-free craft beer to the festival, pouring everything from classic IPAs, hoppy ales and crisp, refreshing and perfectly balanced lagers and pilsners.The independent Edinburgh brewery will join the Scottish contingent alongside Dundee’s 71 Brewing, who perfect small batch brews and crisp lagers. Dundee’s first active brewery in over 50 years, the company embraces modern brewing techniques blended with traditional European styles for a superior beer. Dalkeith’s Otherworld Brewing will also pour their highly hopped and fruited beers at the festival, perfecting barrel aged and funked up styles with a modern twist.
One of Glasgow Craft Beer Festival’s key benefits for beer fans is that ALL beer is included in your ticket, so fans can feel free to experiment and find their new favourite beer. For those with a sweet tooth, the addition of Amundsen Brewery means beer fans can try out the brewery’s famous ‘Pastry World’ beers - stouts and sours that taste like desserts. Combining beer with dessert is no mean feat, yet Amundsen have brewed epic flavours like Pecan & Maple Pie, Triple Berry Pavlova and even Mocha Ice Cream Fudge Cake.
Also added to today’s brewery line up are Liverpool’s Black Lodge and Welsh brewery Tiny Rebel. They join over 35 breweries from around the world who will pour at SWG3 in Glasgow’s West End in just under 4 weeks.
Festival fans can quench their thirst with lagers and IPAs, or even chocolate flavoured stouts, as well as enjoying a culinary feast from Glasgow’s very best chefs. Winners of the UK National Burger Awards in 2019 and 2021, El Perro Negro bring their famous grass-fed beef burgers to the festival alongside southside toastie supremos Babos and pizza specialists Beirm.
Whether you’re brand new to craft beer, or know your IPAs from your stouts, the two-day festival is a world of discovery and diversity.
