So – what’s happening in the Edinburgh beer scene over the next seven days?
Monday’s Appellation tasting takes place in Dalry, and features the shimmering golden ales of Flanders and Wallonia. Head along to Greater Haymarket and let Ash and the team take you on a summery, zesty tour of the very best golden beer Belgium has to offer. Or your money back.
One of the standout calendar events on the Edinburgh beer scene begins in the middle of the week – the Bow Bar Winter Beer Festival. Mike and the team always assemble an unmissable selection of beers for their festivals, and this one will be no different, with treats appearing on the tall fonts from breweries around the UK, as well as Germany, the USA, Italy, Belgium, Sweden and New Zealand. Keep an eye on the Twitter feed for what’s on, when.
Yet, on the same night as the Bow’s taps are turned to festival beer, a short scurry through the Grassmarket finds the Hanging Bat devoting all of their lines to beers from the Peak District powerhouse, Thornbridge. Surely any beer fan in this country will have heard of them, but if you haven’t heard from them, Wednesday’s your chance. Except, as per usual, the tickets disappeared in seconds. But, also as per usual, the beers will be there, and Alex, Rob and Dom will be there for chatting purposes after the event.
The Edinburgh Beer Weekly will be published every Sunday here on the BeerCast. If you have an event in or around the city that you’d like to feature – please get in touch at the usual email address. Cheers!
