23RD – 25TH NOVEMBER 2017
Yes, it’s back! Edinburgh’s biggest and best celebration of craft beer returns for November 2017 with more brewers, more street food and, of course, more craft beer!
Rich & Dan, the curators of craft beer brilliance have prepared a fantastic line-up for this year’s festival, featuring some the best brewers from Scotland, Ireland, Wales and Europe. The festival will be welcoming some familiar faces from our region and also introducing new breweries from further afield that are producing some delicious beers. As well as the opportunity to sample exclusive beers not available anywhere apart from the festival, there’ll be tasty snacks from top street-food vendors and a great roster of DJs and live music.
The venue for this craft beer congregation is the awesome Assembly Roxy, which can be found just off South Bridge, behind Surgeons’ Hall in Old Town Edinburgh. It’s the perfect venue for Edinburgh Craft Beer Revolution Festival with its large main hall, which will be transformed into a Beer Hall showcasing seventeen breweries with over 60 beers on tap at any time, street food stalls and a Cocktail Corner. Elsewhere in the venue there’ll be some very special takeovers in the Upper Theatre and Basement Bar. With local faves such as Alechemy, Fallen Brewing and Pilot rubbing shoulders with international names there is a pale ale, pilsner or porter guaranteed to tickle your tastebuds. Even if you don’t want to enjoy the beers, (which I suppose is possible, but at least give one a try) there will be plenty of epic Thistly Cross ciders, wines from Vino and cocktails available for people who prefer a non-beery tipple.
What would a festival be without food… so to accompany the steady stream of flowing beer there will be a selection of mouthwatering street food, featuring flavours from around the world. What goes well with a beer, well a pie of course, so Jarvis Pickles will be on hand to warm you up from the inside. Awesome Scottish street food vendors Bruadair will be on-site, hopefully with their fabulous Venison Burger. Fancy a curry with your pint, Sharma's Street Food will sort you out. And to finish off, how about something sweet (and gluten free) from Sugar Daddy’s bakery. What a line-up!
So it's back and it’s bigger and better than ever! More brewers, more beers, more awesome street food, more DJs and more awesomeness. Whether you're a seasoned beer drinker or simply want to sample some of the new and exciting drafts being made by the best up-and-coming brewers in the UK: this is the festival for you!
