BrewDog’s ‘CollabFest’ returns to champion independent craft brewers
Scottish craft brewer, BrewDog, is celebrating the UK’s up-and-coming breweries with the return of its fourth annual CollabFest this weekend.
The festival, which runs over three days from 21st – 23rd October, will see 19 BrewDog bars across the UK team up with their local independent craft brewers to create a range of limited edition beers.
Top craft breweries taking part in Scotland are Top Out in Edinburgh, Alechemy Brewing in Dundee, Fierce Beer in Aberdeen and a double treat of Dead End Brew Machine and Fyne Ales in Glasgow.
Tracy Lee, Head of Marketing at BrewDog, said, “#CollabFest2016 is our chance to give new beacons of craft a platform to shout about the exciting beer they’re creating. We love beer, and we’ve chosen independent breweries who love it as much as we do. The festival is the public’s chance to taste the most exciting new creations in craft.
“This beer game is all about being collaborative, sharing expertise, throwing people together and seeing what gems they come up with, and we’re nothing short of psyched to test this year’s eclectic range of badass brews.”
