So – what’s happening in the Edinburgh beer scene over the next seven days?
Following on from a successful debut in March, Blind Man’s Bluff returns to Appellation Comely Bank, hosted by Craig and the team – what will their devious minds have come up with? Will your tastebuds be able to pick what beers they have selected? There’s only one way to find out…
On Tuesday, the Bow Bar is hosting another of their semi-regular ‘Good Beer Nights’. No fuss, no frills, just the following beers:- Anarchy’s Crime Scene, Rough Justice and Urban Assault, Highland Seafire, Red Squirrel London Black Jack, Great Heck Citra and Yakima IPA, Top Out Smoked Porter, Elixir Sugar Lumps, and two ciders (for those inclined) from Thistly Cross. Holy moly.
On Thursday (but continuing all weekend) – the Guildford Arms will be featuring beers from one of Scotland’s newest-revealed breweries – Black Wolf, who used to be Traditional Scottish Ales. On the bar – Big Red, Tundra, Rok IPA, Gold Digger. All the beers will be on at £2.50 a pint, while they last. Don’t be surprised if they don’t last long!
This coming weekend, the third Summerhall beer festival takes place, as the arts venue that encompasses Barney’s Brewery opens the doors again. With a huge outdoor drinking area, let’s hope the sun shines, as plenty of beers will be on offer. From the home stable (literally), Barney will be producing new beers such as a pale ale brewed with gin botanicals (supplied by Summerhalls new distillery, Pickerings), alongside 25 beers from such a range of notables as Weihenstephan, Mort Subite and Elixir. Food and live music will also be available. The festival opens twice on both days; 4:30pm-7:30pm Friday (£5), 2pm-7:30pm Saturday (£6) and on both nights, 8pm-1am (£9). Tickets include your first beer, and a festival glass.
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!
