The Edinburgh Craft Beer Experience promises to be a truly immersive beer event, with over 20 breweries across all three floors.
Each floor will have bars dedicated to a different region of brewing. The Main Hall will be a celebration of Scotland’s 5,000 year history of brewing, with craft breweries from Edinburgh’s doorstep and beyond. The taps in the Upper Theatre will be pouring Belgium’s distinctive lambic style, including Belgium’s oldest lambic brewery, Timmermans. While downstairs in the atmospheric Snug Bar the best of the rest of Britain’s breweries will be on show; with some beers making their way north of the border for the very first time. Highlights include Edinburgh based Pilot, Barneys and Campervan, plus Six Degrees North, Fallen and Tempest, Magic Rock, Tiny Rebel, The Kernel and Camden Town Brewery.
In addition to the beer, the Basement Theatre will host a full programme of beer themed workshops and masterclasses. Drinkers will see beer in a different light with tasting notes and food pairings; get to know the men and women behind the cask with meet the brewer sessions; and even start their own brewing journey with home brew masterclasses. Seating in these events will be limited, and on a first come first served basis so guests are encouraged to arrive early to avoid disappointment.
