So – what’s happening in the Edinburgh beer scene over the next seven days?
Monday’s tasting at Appellation Wines Comely Bank revolves around the most successful beer style of all. In all its guises, the lager has come to dominate the world. Find out how, and why, and taste some classic – and very different – examples, such as German Helles, Czech Pilsners, and hopped-up American Craft Lagers.
Tryst and Stewart Brewing have featured, now this Wednesday Winston’s Lounge are hosting a tap takeover from a brewery seen less often in the capital – West Lothian’s Kinneil Brew Hoose. Head along and find out what they have been up to recently, how things are going at the Corbie Inn, and chat with the Kinneil team.
On Thursday, there’s a battle of the (pub) brewers taking place at Thomson’s on Morrison Street. Four of Edinburgh’s Shilling Group establishments have taken a turn to produce a beer on Stewart Brewing’s Craft Beer Kitchen, and you can head down and help pick a winner. There’ll be a blind-tasting of all four beers before the voting. Who will win? The Cross and Corner, Golden Rule, the Fountain – or will homefield advantage work for Thomson’s?
Also on Thursday (but continuing all weekend) – the Guildford Arms will be featuring beers from one of our local producers – Livingston’s Alechemy Brewing Company. On the bar – Starlaw, Ritual Pale, Mosaic Burst, and their new Ahtanum, Chinook and Columbus IPA, Up & Atom. All the beers will be on at £2.50 a pint, while they last. Don’t be surprised if they don’t last long!
