Gravity Beer Festival announce its full brewery list!

The newest Edinburgh’s Craft beer Festival has confirmed the list of breweries that will participate to the inaugural edition in September at Summerhall.

The team behind the festival has invited a mix of new and established breweries that will seduce all beer aficionados.

For this year’s edition, Gravity Beer Festival will welcome the Scottish Barneys Beer, Campervan Brewery, Holy Goat Brewing, Dead End Brew Machine, Newbarns Brewery, Otherworld Brewing and Brew Toon. They will be joined by some of the best breweries from over the border: McColls Brewery, Attic Brew Co, The Kernel, Brew York, Adnams, Rock Leopard and ABYSS Brewing.

About their participation Rachel Auty, Head of Marketing at Brew York said:

“Edinburgh is an amazing city for beer and we have been visiting for many years, so we’re really excited to be back pouring our beers for the people of Scotland this September. The festival itself looks like it’s going to be a great event and to mark the occasion we’ve saved some of our super-special barrel-aged beers to pour at the event. We can’t wait!”

Cider amateurs have not been forgotten by the organisers; Hard Pressed Cider will guide them through their selection of the best craft ciders in the country.

For Andrew Barnett from Barney’s Beer, co-organiser of the festival with Summerhall, it was all about bringing friends together and supporting the industry.

“We’re operating a Ticket Profit Share at Gravity Beer Festival, meaning that all the ticket profits will be spilt equally amongst all the breweries who will be exhibiting. It’s just our little way of supporting the industry. We’re not looking to make any money from it ourselves, it’s more about putting together a fun weekend for everyone.”

The team has also announced a series of lectures taking place during the festival in Summerhall’s Anatomy room.

From learning about hops to beer tasting with prestigious brewers, the festival will be a unique occasion to meet, learn and discuss with brewing professionals. The full programme of lectures and tastings will be communicated closer to the date.

Each session includes the access to the festival, a complementary glass, and samples from all the brewery stalls.
