Thanks to a host of brewers, producers and like-minded organisers, the Great Scottish Beer Celebration – which had been under threat - has been reborn as Beer Makes Glasgow.

Now a not-for-profit event, the festival will be held over two-days and four sessions,with any money made now being donated to the Drumchapel Food Bank who work to support people facing financial crisis, providing them with food parcels on a scheduled and emergency basis, five days a week.

It's just been announced that the following breweries have been confirmed for the event:

Fyne Ales
Fallen Brew Co
Dead End Brew Machine
Gallus Brewing
Up Front
Out of Town
St Andrews
Cross Borders

A spokesperson for the collective behind the festival's revival said: "We will announce more beers over the coming week but can confirm just now that alongside all of the breweries attending we also have some very special beers.

"Out of Town will be launching their new North East Coast v.2. at the event. While Gallus will have the only kegs in existence of their 10 month old Imp stout, a brand new big and bold NE style DIPA as well as a brand new collab with Up Front, a mango and key lime Gose.

"Up Front will also be offering their new Yojo – a Kalamansi / Passionfruit Gose, which has already been doing the rounds at the Summer beer festivals and has proven to be a massive hit with drinkers so far.

"Grunting Growler will also be in attendance offering their usual range of great beers.

"Remember that we will have limited tickets on the door but a place can be secured online for the same price."
