Drygate Brewing Co.

Drygate Brewing Co have been making beer in the historic heart of Glasgow since 2014. We brew with open doors and open minds; we believe good beer can come from anywhere, and anyone. Collaboration with our community is at our core; we love showcasing creators of beer, food, art, design, music, comedy, poetry, and more. Operating across our state-of-the-art bespoke 26.5HL main brewhouse + 250L Studio kit, our brewing team share a passion for great beer. Housed in a converted box factory under the seven peaks of the roof, our building reflects Glasgow’s industrial past while the experiential brewery inside invites visitors on a journey of brewing and discovery.

85 Drygate was built in 1964, originally as a box assembly and screen printing factory, using brick, steel, and concrete. The design concentrates on existing eccentricities of the building, bearing traces of all its previous incarnations: box factory, print works, bottling plant and storage unit. The original structure and details of the building have been preserved including the restoration of the original seven peaks of the sawtooth roof, exposed brick walls displayed behind newly installed panes of glass and the preservation of paint marks on the concrete floor, celebrating traces of the building’s functional heritage.

A joint venture between craft brewers Williams Brothers and macro-brewers Tennant’s located partly in a 1930s former box factory beside the Tennant’s brewery on Duke Street in the East End, Drygate has a beer hall with big screens for sports and space for music and comedy events, and a terrace for those rare Glasgow days when the rain isn’t pouring down. You can sample 26 rotating beers on tap and countless more bottled varieties. If you’re looking to go behind the scenes, that’s easily sorted: just go along to one of the brewery tours and you’ll discover exactly how Drygate’s fantastic beers come to be. Feeling peckish? Grab some of the delectables on offer at Drygate’s kitchen.
