Craft Beer Discovery on Friday, June 30 to Saturday, July 1 will see over a dozen independent and artisan brewers exhibit their products at The Falkirk Stadium.

Alongside the ales and beers, visitors can also enjoy cider, wine and gins from the well stocked gin bar and entertainment will be provided by some of the best Scottish musicians and bands. For the peckish, street food such as tacos, burgers and pulled pork will be dished up and the event is under cover, so even the rain won’t dampen the atmosphere.

The event will be one of the first to be held in the new space at Falkirk Stadium, and is from Harbro Events, the team behind Falkirk Whisky Festival and Falkirk Gin Festival.

Tickets, priced £12 are on sale now at

Organiser Andy Ure from Falkirk said: “This is our biggest and most ambitious event to date, combining craft beer with food and live music.

“Craft beer is enjoying a boom just now as people are more passionate than ever about choosing to drink quality over quantity. With more exhibitors still to be confirmed, we are very excited about some of the great breweries and products already coming along.

“And even for the non-beer lovers, we have ciders, wine and gin available too as well as lots of tasty food and a great line up of entertainment.”

Three sessions are available on the Friday evening 6-11pm, Saturday noon-5pm and Saturday evening 6-11pm with a limited amount of early bird tickets on sale now at a reduced price.

Each ticket includes a Craft Beer Discovery glass and a programme.

Larbert brewery Tryst will be at the event and is producing a special ale for the event.

Laurie McGarva from the brewery said: “Craft Beer Discovery is a fantastic opportunity for the people of Falkirk to enjoy ales from a wide variety of established breweries and celebrate this unique industry.

“Tryst Brewery are really excited about the event and the Stadium provides a great backdrop.

“The team at Tryst are incredibly passionate about producing quality ales, with locally sourced ingredients, and will be working hard to produce the first festival ale for Craft Beer Discovery.”
