Edinburgh Craft Beer Festival Returns to Corn Exchange This August

Scotland’s biggest and best celebration of modern beer, that goes by the name of Edinburgh Craft Beer Festival (ECBF), returns for summer 2021 over a weekend that will re-unite beer lovers, foodies and music fans from across the Capital at the Edinburgh’s Corn Exchange.

The 2021 festival will host over 30 world-class breweries, pouring 100s of beers from across Europe. The first line-up release includes brews from several Raise the Bar Winners and a host of others. Also pouring at the We Are Beer Bar are beers from: Amundsen, Basqueland, Beerbliotek, DEYA, Gamma, Dry & Bitter and Whiplash.

ECBF 2021 is a great way to enjoy a range of new and established beers and become an expert in the world of craft beer where you can meet the makers of some of Scotland and Europe’s finest brews. Other drink options available at the festival MAY include Cider, Wine, Gin, No/Low alcohol, sodas and more.

A selection of wares from Edinburgh’s top foodies, such as nachos and hotdogs from Fat Flamingo, Japanese fare from Harajuku Kitchen  and Rost will bring their signature dishes to festival-goers. Headliner music acts spinning the decks include Fat White Family, Hip-Hop Karaoke, David Ballantyne and Keir Reid.

More breweries, food vendors and music acts will be announced over the coming weeks on all ECBF social channels and website.

Co-founder of festival organisers We Are Beer, Greg Wells said “We Are Beer are delighted to bring our big celebration of all things beer, food and music back to Edinburgh at the brilliant Corn Exchange. We cannot wait to welcome back our Edinburgh festival regulars and meet our new attendees to come together once again to enjoy the best drinks and food around. I’m also thrilled to add new breweries to our festival family this year, including local brewery Newbarns, who launched in Leith last year, from across the water, Maltgarden from Poland and Seven Island Brewery from Greece …. We hope to see you all there at our safe and friendly festival this August.”
