About Edinburgh Craft Beer Festival

Edinburgh Craft Beer Festival is returning this May Bank Holiday with a capital line-up of over 40 internationally renowned breweries, combined with headline DJ acts from the likes and Scottish stalwarts Mogwai, as well as award-winning street food curated by the famed Pitt Street Market.

An international affair, Edinburgh Craft Beer Festival will be serving up over 300+ beers from a range of hand-picked, global brewers from the USA, Scandinavia and the UK, amongst others. Brewing giants Beavertown and Mikkeller will rub shoulders with boundary pushing Stillwater and Dugges, alongside Scottish favourites Pilot, Tempest Brew Co, and Fierce Beer.

Such was the popularity of the event last year that event organisers, Greg Wells and Dan Sylvester increased the size of the festival, both in footprint and capacity. The 40+ brewers will descend on the Biscuit Factory from the 25th to 27th May 2018, showcasing their beers to an audience of more than 3,000 people. Ticket-holders will be able to try seasonal, exclusive and brand-new beers amongst the 300+ brews available.

DJ sets include legends of the Scottish music scene, Mogwai, as well as DJ Don Letts of BBC 6 Music fame, Two Door Cinema Club and cult group Metronomy.

There will also be a selection of the best in local street food organised in partnership with the celebrated Pitt Street Market. The Buffalo Truck – winners of the Scottish Street Food Awards 2017 – will be joining Barnacles & Bones, Pizza Geeks and more to keep festival goers well-fed.
