I am not a beer person. Sure I like Beer, like most people. But I have never really ventured past the typical Stella, Tennents and Budweiser. You know the common household names. That is the stuff I was brought up on and that is the stuff I have stuck to. If you were to go into my local and asked for anything other than Tennents you are likely to get lynched. It was only recently when I came across Drygate and I wish I came across it sooner.
Brewed in Glasgow and brewed fearlessly at that, Drygate is definitely eye catching. That is the thing that drew me to the Beer. Not only that but it tripped me down the rabbit hole into the world of craft beers. I would happily get the artwork from the bottles framed and put on my wall. That’s just how much I like it. Each bottle has its distinct style but they are all pulled together with the minimalist branding which holds its own.
The three bottles I have here are Bearface Lager, Gladeye IPA and Outaspace Apple Ale. As far as I am aware this is Drygate’s core range, well with the exception of Ax Man Rye IPA, which I couldn’t get my hands on when taking the photos throughout this post. My personal favourite is the Bearface Lager; I promise it is not just for the design. It’s clean and crisp and is just a pleasure to drink.
If you have never tried any craft beers I highly recommend the Drygate range. It has led me into a world of craft beers that I never knew existed. Do you drink craft beers? Let me know your favourites in the comments below.
