Explore the beauty of craft beer at this brilliant beer festival.
One thing we’ve missed during lockdown? That sweet, sweet feeling of sinking a freshly pulled beer – perfectly chilled and straight from the barrel. It’s a weekend luxury that we can’t wait to be reunited with, and it looks like we’re not the only ones. Heading into town with an epic weekender of all things beer – The Edinburgh Craft Beer Festival is rolling into town this summer, celebrating all things craft beer (as you’ve probably guessed by its name).
Taking place over two days in August (Friday 20th and Saturday 21st), the boozy festival will pop up at Edinburgh Corn Exchange– an urban events space voted one of Scotland’s best large venues with a rooftop garden, attracting huge events such as The Annual Scottish Tattoo Convention. And now, beer lovers will get the chance to enjoy the huge open space, which will be filled with over 30 world-class breweries offering a taste of their fantastic craft beers.
In addition to a whole fleet of breweries to get familiar with, guests will be treated to some amazing headliner music acts spinning the decks. Previous festivals saw the likes of Belle & Sebastian, Young Fathers and Mogwai bringing the tunes so expect some great music.
Plus, The Edinburgh Craft Beer Festival has an amazing line-up of street food vendors who will be on hand to help line your tums throughout the event. Expect mouthwatering dishes from Bross Bagels, Harajuku Kitchen and more.
Tickets are on sale now, and each include access to the five-hour event, as well as your very own tasting glass to keep which you can take around the event with you for refills. Tickets cost just £53.70 (with all your beer included!) and you can pick up yours here.
