Beer fans in the capital rejoice! Stewart Brewing has announced that its annual Edinburgh Beer Festival will return to the city on Saturday 13th May.

The Edinburgh-based brewery says it will be their biggest event yet with over 40 craft beers, including Stewart’s favourites such as Radical Road, Jack Back, Holyrood and Pentland IPA.

The newly launched Stewart’s Lager will also be on offer.

Visitors will also have the chance to taste a Stewart Brewing Cider – specially made for the festival.

There will be live music and street food aplenty with vendors including Big Blu Pizza and Fresh Revolution making an appearance and for those not wanting to overload on beer, there will be a selection of wines, gins and soft drinks to ensure everyone is catered for.

Taking place at the Bilston Glen Industrial Estate on Dryden Road, the festival is easily reached from Edinburgh city centre by bus (routes 37 and 47).

Tickets cost £15 per person which includes entry, a souvenir glass and can of beer on arrival. Children accompanied by adults can attend free of charge.

Jo Stewart, founder of Stewart Brewing, said the event, which is in its third year will be the best yet, said: “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.

“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.”
