Is this Scotland’s best value craft beer festival? Indie Beer Scotland returns to Glasgow for 2024

Tickets are now on sale for Scotland’s biggest craft beer festival; Indie Beer Scotland returns to Clyde Rooms at Edmiston House in Glasgow on the 6th & 7th September 2024, with ticket and beer prices frozen from 2023.

Featuring over two hundred different cask and craft keg beers from some of Scotland’s best independent craft breweries, plus cider & spirits from independent Scottish producers, the event is in its second year in Glasgow after launching in Edinburgh in 2022.

Indie Beer Scotland is organised by Scottish brewers from the not-for-profit trade association the Society of Independent Brewers and Associates, who have frozen all ticket and beer prices from 2023 for the 2024 event, making the award-winning pints some of the best value in the City. Festival organiser Fiona MacEachern, from Loch Lomond Brewery, says the event has found its home at the ‘superb’ Glasgow venue;

“It’s great to be back at the Clyde Rooms at Edmiston House, a superb modern event space just a short walk from the subway and with great connections and transport links. We’re really proud to call Edmiston the home of Scotland’s only National beer festival, featuring exclusively Scottish independent craft breweries, cider producers, and independent spirits producers.”

Indie Beer Scotland is the country’s biggest beer festival showcasing solely Scottish beers and offers great value for money, with a large number of session beers including cask and craft keg available from just £4 a pint and all prices including tickets frozen at 2023 rates.

“Indie Beer Scotland is an event for everybody and we’re really proud to be freezing all of our beer prices for another year. We just want people to come and enjoy the huge range of great Scottish beers we have on offer, whether you’re into traditional real ales, modern craft beers, or great tasting lagers – Scottish brewing really has got something for everybody.” Fiona added.

Indie Beer Scotland is also the home of the SIBA Scotland Independent Beer Awards 2024, with judging taking place to name Scotland’s very best beers prior to the festival opening to the public – making festival-goers the first to try Scotland’s Official best beers, with all this year’s winning beers available over the three sessions Friday to Saturday. Beers range from session strength lagers and pale ales of 4%, to barrel-aged imperial stouts and scotch ales which tip the scales at a punchy 10% abv or more.

Indie Beer Scotland runs from Friday the 6th until Saturday 7th September 2024, Clyde Rooms at Edmiston House, Glasgow. The event is sponsored by Kegstar.
