A craft beer festival taking place just south of Glasgow has announced a top line up of Scottish brewers for this year's event. 

After a break in 2018, beer lovers in Newton Mearns were delighted to find out earlier this year that the popular event would return this summer for a fourth year, and organisers say this year they have some big-hitters making an appearance.

Up Front, WEST, Overtone and Thistly Cross Cider have all been confirmed.

Taking place on Saturday August 17th, the club are teaming up with Drygate to brew their very own beer for the occasion – The Mighty – and tickets will include a free half pint of the new Whitecraigs Beer upon entry.

The Orry Botanical Gin from nearby Eaglesham will be showcasing their wares, with leading Scottish street food vendors Bowl Food and Mighty Mexican heading up the food line-up.

A spokesperson for the event said: “There are more big names to be announced in the coming days, with fantastic entertainment and music too.

“Running over one jam-packed session, the day will offer up plenty of beers, fine wine, gin, cider and top quality street food, with live music and entertainment making it a not-to-miss event.”

The event, which takes place at the Aurs Road-based rugby club’s premises is an over-18s event. The organisers say children are welcome but not catered for.
