Bar and brewery launched
Innis & Gunn brewery boost for Glasgow Arches
Dougal Sharp at Argyle St Bar
Scottish craft brewer Innis & Gunn has invested a six-figure sum in its latest venture – an onsite bar and brewery Glasgow’s Argyle St Arches.
It has extended the largest and fourth arch in what is a significant expansion in the continued evolution of the venue. The opening extends the capacity of Argyle St Arches by around 350.
The bar is one of seven venues across Scotland where the brewery-fresh tank lager can be sampled. Innis & Gunn will regularly rotate Argyle St Arches exclusive brews created on site, as well as offering beer lovers the chance to take over the brew kit themselves in the months to come.
Dougal Gunn Sharp, Innis & Gunn founder and master brewer said: “We have been big fans of what the team at Argyle St Arches have been building since the venue reopened, so it’s amazing to now be a central part of the journey at what is definitely one of the most exciting venues in Scotland.
“The space is stunning, it’s exactly what we wanted it to be when we had initial conversations about the project a number of months ago.
“We’re particularly excited about the new brewing facility.”
The brewer is lending a hand with the ongoing restoration of the original Banksy artwork which is currently taking place at the venue.
