Stewart Brewing prepares for a bumper beer festival

14 March, 2017

Stewart Brewing gets prepared for its annual Edinburgh Beer Festival, which it promises will be the biggest yet.

The one day event at Stewart’s Brewery, on 13 May, will feature more than 40 craft beers, including Radical Road, Jack Back, Hollyrood and Pentland IPA – as well as the brewer’s newly launched Stewart’s Lager. The company is also introducing Stewart Brewing Cider, made especially for the festival, and limited edition beers.

The Festival will also showcase live music and street food vendors, including Big Blu Pizza and Fresh Revolution. Wines, gins and soft drinks will also be available.

Founder Jo Stewart said: “This is our third year holding a beer festival at our brewery and it’s set to be our best yet. We are looking forward to introducing visitors to some of our favourite beers from across Scotland and beyond, including a few special collaborations we have 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.”

Tickets cost £15, which includes entry, a souvenir glass and a can of beer on arrival.  Tickets are on sale on the Stewart Brewing website.
