It’s another busy weekend at Thistly with cider heading out all over the place both inside and outside the UK. Keep up to date on our social media feeds to follow the fun (Twitter, Facebook and Instagram):
The Big Daddy of this weekend, Craft Beer Rising is nearly ready to roll at our friends, Drygate Brewery in Glasgow with the Thistly rainbow bar a work in progress. Thistly Colin has promised us it will be finished in time! You’ll need to come along to see its full beauty between 4th-6th September when it will be manned by Colin, Cammy and Stevie, with Peter popping by on the Friday. All the Thistly varieties will be there with our Barrel-Aged and Slyrs Whisky Cask to tempt your tastebuds. There’ll be around 40+ breweries for your tasting and sampling pleasures alongside all kinds of great street food, and fab music.
The all-important Trade day is on the Friday (register here) – looking forward to meeting old friends and new alike!
