The Drygate Brewery, at Wellpark in the East End, opens tomorrow and offers drinkers a choice of up to 600 different world beers.

A joint project between craft brewers Williams Brothers, of Alloa, and beer giant Tennent Caledonian, visitors will also be able to create their own tipple, thanks to the launch of the Drygate Studio Kit.

Beer has been brewed on the East End site since the 16th century, and the new brewery aims to produce one million litres of craft beer in its first year.

Alessandra Confessore, of the brewery, said: "When it comes to beer, this is the home of great ideas."

Her colleague Ed Evans said: "When we say that Drygate is about a journey from the everyday to the exceptional, we mean it's about opening doors to the craft beer experience and giving people the chance to get hands-on in a brewery.

"It's an amazing place, whether you're here to brew your own beer, or simply coming in for a pint with friends."
