So – what’s happening in the Edinburgh beer scene over the next seven days?
On Tuesday, the Bow Bar is hosting another of their semi-regular ‘Good Beer Nights’. No fuss, no frills, just the following beers:- Buxton Jacob’s Ladder, Arbor Hoptical Delusion XII, Oakham Inferno, Elixir Get It India, Tempest Cascadian Blonde, Tiny Rebel Dirty Stop Out, Siren Sweet Dream and Broken Dream (cask)…Alechemy Citra Burst, Tiny Rebel Full Nelson, Elixir Fremantle Doctor, Redwell Unfiltered IPA (keg). Holy moly.
This Wednesday the Holyrood 9A are again hosting the two champions of this year’s Institute of Brewing and Distilling’s Scottish homebrew competition. Following in the footsteps of Williams Bros Impale IPA and Fyne Ales Zombier, for 2013 we have Frank Christian’s Snotty IPA, brewed at Fyne Ales, and Yoga Chef Stout from a team of homebrewers – Carey Fristoe, Campbell Morrissey and John Mleziva – produced at Stewart Brewing. Having been involved in the judging process, I’ve tasted the beers already, and know it should be a great night. Head down to try them for yourself, meet the finalists in person, and enjoy some other beers from the two breweries involved.
Easter Road’s Cornelius Beer & Wine has recently introduced a series of Friday night tastings, which is great news – and this coming pre-weekend there’s a bottled beer launch there, to boot. James Wroebel has persuaded Tempest founder Gavin Meiklejohn to head up from Kelso and introduce his two new bottled saisons – a spiced Belgian farmhouse saison, and a xxxxxx. Having tasted their other bottled offerings, they are bound to be fascinating, so get there early to meet Gavin, find out what’s going on with Tempest, and get some saison to start the weekend…
