BrewDog, the Scottish brewer and pub operator, will unveil 16 unique collaboration beers at its second annual craft festival on Saturday (25 October).

Teams from each of BrewDog’s 16 participating bars were tasked with joining forces with a local craft brewery to create a limited edition beer. They were involved in the whole process, from selecting ingredients to bottling and naming the signature brew.

Each beer will be tapped simultaneously during the weekend-long ‘CollabFest’ and served in UK BrewDog bars while stocks last. Each bar will also host a ‘Meet the Brewer’ event with its partner brewery.

BrewDog co-founder James Watt said: “This mammoth beer feast is unifying the awesome breweries that are redefining the UK beer scene. From British brewing powerhouses to young mavericks bursting onto the scene, CollabFest will showcase the ingenuity and creativity of the greatest brewers this country has to offer.

“Collaboration is the cornerstone of the craft beer industry and this project is the perfect way to celebrate how far the UK beer scene has come. With exciting new craft breweries launching every week, CollabFest is a testament to how craft beer fever has swept the nation, and the growing demand from the Great British public for better beer.”
