Calling all lager lovers, IPA aficionados, porter experts and craft connoisseurs, the Craft Beer Experience is coming to Edinburgh 15th – 17th November. The Edinburgh Craft Beer Experience promises to be a truly immersive beer event, taking over all three floors of the Assembly Roxy on Roxburgh Place to bring you a taste of the very best beers from Scotland, the UK and Europe.
The Craft Beer Experience will run for five sessions over the three days with beers from over 20 breweries for visitors to taste, with some beers appearing in Scottish taps for the very first time.
Scotland has a long history of brewing beer, and the Assembly’s Main Hall will be a celebration of that 5,000 year tradition, with food and drink coming from some of Scotland’s best producers. The majestic columns of the Main Hall will be interspersed with 12 craft breweries from Edinburgh’s doorstep and beyond.
Also in the Main Hall, to line the stomach, there will be a range of traditional and not so traditional nourishing Scottish fare; and representing the other side of Scotland’s drinking habit; a local Edinburgh bar will be serving up a cocktail list full of Scot spirit with drinks designed to showcase the country’s distilling credentials.
Downstairs and in the venue’s atmospheric Snug Bar, the rest of Britain’s best breweries will be on show.
Travelling the stone staircase to the Upper Theatre will take you to Belgium and its distinctive lambic style.
