Beer-loving friends Richard Servranckx and Dan Quille, both from Leith in Edinburgh, plan to share their passion for quality brews and revolutionise the Scottish beer scene with a new ‘Craft Beer Revolution Festival’ at Assembly Roxy in Edinburgh 24- 26 November 2016.
The three-day festival will showcase craft beers from 13 of the best breweries from Scotland, the UK and Europe including Edinburgh based breweries Pilot and Top Out, Glasgow based Up Front, Panda Frog Project from Newcastle, London based Howling Hops and Parisis from Paris (see full list of breweries in Editors Notes below). Arbikie Gin and Vodka and wines from Vino will also be available for those who wish to enjoy the festival with a different tipple.
Craft Beer Festival
Over 60 beers will be on offer in the Beer Hall, from pale ales to hoppy 10% brews, appealing to both beer connoisseurs and novices who can try new flavours, meet the brewers and discover a new favourite beer. A Craft Beer Revolution beer will also be available – a slightly spicy double red rye IPA – brewed in collaboration with Edinburgh based microbrewery Ushers, and festivalgoers can vote for their favourite beer to win the ‘Craft Beer Revolution Beer of the Year’ award.
To accompany the steady stream of beer, street food is served-up by Scoff, The Buffalo Truck and Glasgow’s popular Babu Bombay Street Kitchen, and Cleaver & Keg Charcuterie Trollies will meander around the festival offering cured meats to pair with the beers available. As well as a Craft Beer Revolution branded glass to drink from at the festival and take home, tastings and masterclasses from the breweries involved are also included with tickets. Entertainment takes the form of a playlist complied from songs festivalgoers request online before the festival, daily pub quizzes, Beer-Drinking Relay Races and much more.
Richard said : ‘We’ve been working hard over the last 6 months to produce Craft Beer Revolution Festival and can’t wait to share it with our visitors.
