On Thursday, as part of the continuing Science festival, Stewart Brewing are offering a tour of their gleaming new facility out at Loanhead.

Winter is Coming…to Cloisters
Cloisters Bar, 26 Brougham St
Further Information

Over the coming weekend, Cloisters are hosting one of the more inventive beer festivals in recent memory – an entire two-day fest themed around Game of Thrones. Now, I’ve never actually seen it, so can’t add any witty puns or knowing references, but check out the beer list and it should be more than enough to tell you where you need to be on Friday and Saturday. If not, there’ll be mead and food as well – it looks like a fantastic lineup.

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!
