After a beer festival hiatus of almost two decades, the Glasgow Branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) is very pleased to announce their plans for a three day festival in the heart of Glasgow’s city centre this summer.
The Glasgow Real Ale Festival (GRAF) will see over 100 of the best beers from the best breweries in Scotland and the rest of the UK gather under the glass roof and stunning surroundings of the historic site of the old Glasgow Fish Market at the Briggait. The beer list is currently being put together and, without giving too much away, the GRAF organisers have decided to cast the net far and wide to bring great beer to Glasgow’s drinkers. Whether it’s a mild from Manchester, a bitter from Burton or hoppyness from Hawkshead there will be a Real Ale for everyone at the GRAF.
The GRAF will also have a cider bar serving Real Cider and Mead as well as our very own foreign bar, Rick’s Bar, pouring fine Franconian Beer from the brewery-rich region between Nuremberg and Bamberg in Bavaria. In case you get hungry in the pursuit of beery happiness, hot food in the shape of bratwurst, bockwurst and crepes will also be available.
