So – what’s happening in the Edinburgh beer scene over the next seven days?
Head along to Dalry on Monday night and get with some Nordic Noir (and saisons, and IPA’s, etc). Appellation’s weekly tasting relates to the flourishing beer scene of Scandinavia. Mikkeller, Nøgne Ø, To Øl – they all produce stunning beers. If you aren’t aware of them, get yourself in the know with Craig and the team on Monday!
On Wednesday, attention turns to the Holyrood 9A, as their taps will be pouring some very special collaboration beers. Argyll’s favoured sons Fyne Ales have joined forces with Eteaket to brew a range of ales infused with specific teas. Six different leafy blends were sent up to Cairndow, and after a fair bit of procrastination (and probably several packets of digestives), two beers were created; Blooming Brew and Chai P.A. Both will be on offer, alongside newcomer From the Ashes, and five other Fyne Ales beers on cask and keg. Get there early!
On Thursday, Jeremiah’s Taproom is the place to be, as Leith’s finest magazine Hot Rum Cow launch their own beer. Produced at Stewart Brewing’s Craft Beer Kitchen, it is a 6.7% rye IPA and should definitely be worth seeking out. The event is free – simply click the link above to let the HRC team know you’re coming. The event also sees the launch of the latest issue, which is based entirely around lager.
The next evening, Leith’s Pilot Beer are putting their liquid wares up against food from Stockbridge’s Pantry – one of the most under-rated restaurants in the city. Four courses will be matched to a beer from Pilot, with all proceeds going to charity. Head along and discover the joys of beer and food matching, and to catch up with what Leith’s new kids on the block are up to.
This coming weekend, the Old Town is playing host to a craft beer and music festival. Rhythm and Brews takes place at the Roxy, and features beers from Barney’s, Williams Brothers, WEST, and the Caledonian, together with cider from Thistly Cross and music from a range of throwback bands. Food is also available, from hog roast specialists Pig in a Poke. There are sessions on all days, at different prices – check the link above for more, or follow the festival on Twitter here.
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!
