Scottish craft brewery to open doors for beer festival
Scottish craft brewer, Stewart Brewing, has announced the return of its annual Edinburgh Beer Festival at its Loanhead brewery on Saturday 13 May.
The one-day event at Stewart Brewing’s brewery on Bilston Glen Industrial Estate will showcase over 40 craft beers, including the popular Radical Road, Jack Back, Hollyrood and Pentland IPA as well as their newly launched Stewart’s Lager.
Visitors will also have the chance to taste a Stewart Brewing Cider – specially made for the festival – and limited edition beers, making it an event beer lovers should not miss.
Founder Jo Stewart, said, “This is our third year holding a beer festival at our brewery and it’s set to be our best yet.
“We’re looking forward to introducing visitors to some of our favourite beers from across Scotland and beyond, including a few special collaborations we’ve created with friends at other breweries.”
She added, “This is clearly the perfect festival for beer enthusiasts but a love of beer is not essential.
“We want it to be a day everyone can come along and enjoy so, in addition to craft beer, the Edinburgh Beer Festival will offer a selection of other drinks and delicious street food, accompanied by music from brilliant local bands.”
The event will also showcase live music and street food vendors, including Big Blu Pizza and Fresh Revolution. As well as beer, there will also be a selection of wines, gins and soft drinks.
Tickets cost £15 per person and include entry, a souvenir glass and can of beer on arrival. They are on sale now from the Stewart Brewing website.
The Edinburgh Beer Festival takes place at Stewart Brewing, Bilston Glen Industrial Estate, 26a Dryden Rd, Loanhead and is easily reached from Edinburgh city centre by bus, routes 37 and 47.
