No plans this weekend? Then head down to Glasgow's Vegan Beer festival, which is back for a second year.

After a successful launch last year, the Glasgow Vegan Beer Festival is back and it’s taking place this weekend.

Vegans and beer lovers should head down to popular cafe bar Mono this Sunday, the 27th August from 12.30 to enjoy a range of brews, cider, wine and 100% vegan dishes whilst listening to live music during the day and a DJ at night.

Described on the event’s Facebook page, the festival is a great way to spend a lazy Sunday:

“Fat Gay Vegan is joining forces with beloved eatery Mono and superstar beer producer William Bros. Brewing Co. to turn Glasgow city centre all shades of amber on August 27, 2016.

“Kings Court will come alive from midday with an explosion of beer, wine and cider as multiple food vendors sizzling up a feast for the hungry.”

Beer being served includes: Loch Lomond Southern Summit, Barneys Red Rye, Cromarty Whiteout , Drygate Dark Skies, Fallen New World Odyssey and Jaw Brew Fathom.

Food will be served in an outdoor BBQ are or inside Mono, and the menus will have dishes such as: Seitan burger in a sourdough bun with home-made kimchi, Frankfurter in a soft bun with home made sauerkraut and mustard, Lahmacun Turkish style pizza with soya mince, roasted aubergine, white onion with a herbed diced salad, and topped with za’atar and yoghurt and Buffalo cauliflower, red onion, cheese, fresh oregano and Caesar sauce.

Tickets are still available to buy here, and are priced at £4 (not including food and drink).
