So – what’s happening in the Edinburgh beer scene over the next seven days?
Also on Monday, Appellation Wines’ Dalry branch are hosting a tasting of a style of beers that Elixir have made their own; the oft-termed ‘speciality beers’. Honey, oats, orange peel, coffee beans, elderflower, coriander, gooseberries – expect all this, and more (not in the same bottle). Head down to Haymarket and discover just what these ingredients bring to the brewing party.
The impact of beer on modern society is rarely considered or appreciated. On Monday, Appellation Wines’ Dalry branch investigates the workings of the world, with six bottles to help explain its complexity. Idioms, invasions, revolutions, inventions and all the crazy stuff in between. Dress code: casual.
Barney has just brewed his 200th brew, and to mark this very special occasion they have decided to do something special; an 1835 porter recipe rekindled for this one batch (1835 being a good year for brewing at Summerhall). It will be on at the Reverie on Wednesday, recommended to be served with their house mussels. Get there early!
On Thursday, the Southern are hosting an-almost-Independence-Day celebration of Edinburgh’s small independent breweries. It begins at 7pm, with a tour of nearby Barney’s Brewery at 7:30. Once done, back at the Southern there will be beers and a Q&A on offer from Barney, Carbon Smith, Pilot Beer and DemonBrew. Each of their beers purchased will gain you a raffle ticket for prizes, and the brewers themselves will be available to chat about just what it takes to start your own small brewery.
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!
