APEX: Peak 01

27 May

A Birthday Celebration of Abundance

One year ago, we started our journey & opened our doors, welcoming the people of Glasgow below our beloved '7 Peaks' for the first time.

In the last year we've brewed some great beer, had some amazing adventures, collaborated, curuated, cultivated all while taking many of you on part of our journey from the everyday to the exceptional!

At the start of our journey we invited GSA graduates from all over the world to create artwork inspired by beer and brewing in Glasgow; We thought it best to bring our first year full circle by collaborating with another amazing group of young artists from the same historic institution.

 
Prints from six chosen artists will be used as limited edition signed wrappers for our birthday beer – APEX: Peak 1 – as well as being displayed throughout Drygate itself: Brewery, Bar, Restaurant & Event Space.
 
Created by our triumvirate of brewers, only 2,400 bottles of our celebratory 7.3% ABV saison-hybrid have been produced & will be available both for pre-order at drygate.com/apex as well as for sale on site during the birthday festivities!
 
Designed to sum up our entire collective learning and experimentation from our first year, APEX: Peak 1 will begin a series of beers charting our commitment to brewing fearlessly and taking beer drinkers on a journey from the everyday to the exceptional.
 
The GSA graduates taking part in the collaboration include Matthew Bainbridge whose work features emojis and recognisable faces from popular culture; artist Rae-Yun Song who uses her surreal style to interpret everyday scenarios and painter Fran Caballero who drew inspiration from cartoons and classical still life to create his Drygate submission.
Our most celebratory & abundant beer yet will be available from our brewery shop from 1900 on Friday 29th May during our birthday weekender 'WE ARE ONE'.
