CRAFT brewer Drygate has launched an ‘apple amnesty’ across Glasgow.
The east end brewery has invited local growers to donate their home-grown apples for use in its Outaspace Apple Ale.
For every kilo of apples exchanged, participants will be rewarded with a 25p Drygate voucher they can use at the brewery’s on-site bottle shop.
Brewer Jake Griffin said: “There are so many ways to be creative with surplus home-grown fruit.
“The apple amnesty is exciting for everyone involved – we get to brew with Glasgow-grown apples and the community get to see their fruit transformed into delicious craft beer.”
Outaspace Apple Ale has just secured its first listing at Scottish Tesco stores alongside the rest of the Drygate core range.
Colin Johnston, operations director at Drygate, said: “We are passionate about brewing exceptional craft beer, and the apple amnesty is one of the ways we’re opening our doors to the people of Glasgow. Outaspace Apple Ale is one of our three ‘core range’ beers and we’re excited to brew with produce grown a stone’s throw from our brewery.”
Apples can be delivered to Drygate Brewing Co. at 85 Drygate, Glasgow.
