Your Summer Beer Timetable



Discernable beer drinkers, it sure has been a long time. Worry not, this news update should satisfy. We have been storing up a big event update for some time. Just so, in the interest of great beer, you have ample time and sufficient help to plan your summer drinking timetable.

The Bitter Descends

Next week sees the return of Natural Selection Brewing. By now I am sure you are aware of the project with sees four budding brewing students launch, sell and market their very own beer, with the help of both Stewart’s and Heriot-Watt University.

Bitter Descent is this year’s concoction and it will not disappoint. Come and celebrate the launch of this year’s beer with live music from The Blueswater and of course, copious amounts of beer. Thursday 2nd July from 7pm until late at New Amphion and Teviot Lounge. Tickets £10 on the door.

Scottish Real Ale Festival

9th – 11th July at the Corn Exchange will exhibit the very best of Scottish beer. Organised by CAMRA, the Scottish Real Ale Festival always showcases a huge variety of beers, both familiar favourites and some brand new creations. Our Craft Beer Kitchen has rustled up several limited edition brews for you to try!

Get Your Brew on at The Southern

The annual homebrew competition hosted by The Southern, which gave the world a taste for First World Problems, launches again on the 16th July. Judging will be later in the year and all information will be available on the evening. Oh and, if you are yet to try the brand new Saison des Pluies, it will be pouring on the bar! You should enter, you never know, we might just brew the winning beer.

Skeleton Blues    

The homebrew competition theme continues. On Saturday 25th July we will be launching the winning beer from the Institute of Brewing & Distilling competition. Judged a few months back, we could not wait to turn this homebrew in to a full production batch. Skeleton Blues is delectable 5.2% American Wheat beer. Less on the wheaty side, as you might expect, but huge amounts on the hop front. The recipe which was originally brewed by James Morton (of Great British Bake Off fame no less), features the biggest hop regime that Stewart’s will have used to date on production scale!

Saturday 25th July, 8pm at Ushers, Edinburgh Southside.

Summer Beer & Food Festival

Stewart’s massive celebration of all things local, all things food and all things drink has SOLD OUT! We were not anticipating ticket sales to soar quite so much so apologies if you were disappointed. There is talk of a late release of 30-50 tickets so do keep your eyes peeled if you fancy joining the likes of Edinburgh Gin, S.Lucas, Top Out Brewery and many more.

Live music, collaboration brews, Stewart’s specials, gin, cider, amazing local street food. Now all we need is some at least semi-decent weather!

Please note, the Brewery Shop will be closed on the 1st August to those with no ticket.

That’s all from Stewart’s for now. Keep enjoying the beers, keep letting us know what you think and keep showing your support – we value every single one of you!
