Edinburgh Craft Beer Festival

About Edinburgh Craft Beer Festival

Scotland’s largest celebration of craft beer returns to Edinburgh this May with a special foodie focus, top-class music acts and a huge selection of craft beers from some of the world’s most innovative brewers.

Taking place from Friday 24 – Saturday 25 May at The Biscuit Factory, the Edinburgh Craft Beer Festival will welcome some of Edinburgh’s leading restaurants to serve up a tantalising array of culinary treats, keeping beer lovers well-fed all weekend.This year the festival has partnered up with two of Edinburgh’s top restaurants to offer revelers something a bit special. Chef Stuart Ralston from Aizle will be creating a menu in miniature, bringing the tastes of his award-winning restaurant to the Biscuit Factory.

Joining Aizle will be Harajuku Kitchen, Edinburgh’s favourite Japanese restaurant, famed for its authentic comfort food (especially chef patron Kaori’s gyoza). For good old-fashioned street food, The Pitt’s stalwart Buffalo Truck will be serving up its naughty but nice buttermilk chicken burgers, with more culinary vendors to be announced shortly.

This year’s festival will also play host to another impressive line-up of top-class performers, with DJ Yoda, Belle & Sebastian, Hip Hop Karaoke and Gentelmans Dub Club among the confirmed acts ready to keep crowds entertained all weekend.

Some of the world’s hottest new breweries* will be showcasing their products, including Fierce from Scotland, To Øl from Denmark, Canada’s Collective Arts and Stone & Wood from Australia, as well as major names in the brewing world that have never before poured in Scotland.

Marking a first for the Edinburgh Craft Beer Festival, this year the festival organisers We Are Beer will create a special brew in collaboration with Pilot, to be launched ahead of the event. At just 3.5% ABV, it’s a refreshing, low-alcohol pale brew for lazy summer days, with zingy flavours of watermelon, mint and hibiscus.

This year will also see the return of the Raise the Bar competition, which seeks to find new, up-and-coming brewers and shine a light on creativity and innovation in the brewing industry. Winners will once again have the opportunity to showcase their products at the Edinburgh Craft Beer Festival as well as the London and Bristol festivals, and new Birmingham event, Beer Central.
