Food, music and beer (lots of it) is coming to the Corn Exchange for the The Edinburgh Craft Beer Festival 2021 on Friday 20th and Saturday 21st August.
The weekend line-up will host over 30 craft breweries, pouring 100s of beers from across Europe.
The first line-up release includes brews from Raise the Bar winner Alpha Delta to Verdant, with the We Are Beer Bar serving beers from a variety of European breweries, such as Oslo's Amundsen, San Sebastian's Basqueland, Gothenburg's Beerbliotek, Cheltenham's DEYA, Denmark's Gamma and Dry & Bitter, and Dublin's Whiplash.
A selection of Edinburgh foodies will be bringing dishes to festival-goers, including Fat Flamingo (nachos and hotdogs) and Harajuku Kitchen (Japanese) and Rost.
Headliner music acts spinning the decks include Fat White Family (DJ SET), Friendly Fires (DJ SET), Doves (DJ SET) ft. Jez Williams, Hip-Hop Karaoke, David Ballantyne and Keir Reid
