Stewart Brewing has announced several limited-edition German-inspired beers that have been created especially for its first ever ‘Oktobeerfest’ event on 15th and 16th September.


Limited-edition beers already announced include:

  • Weizenbock – Hefty wheat beer with aromas of banoffee pie. Lots of banana and light spice from the wheat beer yeast on the taste and a bready sweet finish.
  • Raspberry Wheat Beer – Classic Hefeweizen with fruit. A pink-tinged wheat beer with lots of red fruit flavour.
  • Rauchbier – Smoky as a night by a roaring fire. Brewed with 50% German beech-smoked malt, lots of smoke flavours balanced by malt sweetness and a mild hop bitterness.
  • Altbier – Traditional Dusseldorf style ale brewed with lots of dark malts. Toffee and caramel with a sweet finish.
  • Classic Hefeweizen – Pale and cloudy effervescent wheat beer with banana and spice notes.
  • Fruited Berlinerweisse – A 3.0% sour base with passionfruit, mango and raspberry added for a fruity thirst-quenching beer with a light sour kick.


In addition to beer, Oktobeerfest will feature a selection of street food vendors such as Well Hung & Tender and Fresh Revolution. There will also be an eclectic mix of music from the likes of The Citizens, The Banjo Lounge 4 and Stadtkapelle Lochgelly oompah band who are sure to keep guests entertained with their German-style takes on classic hits.


Oktobeerfest will take place over two days with an adults-only event on Friday 15th September from 6pm – 10pm and a family friendly event on Saturday 16th September from 12pm – 8pm.


Jo Stewart, Stewart Brewing co-founder, commented: “While we’re known for making old favourites such as Edinburgh Gold and Radical Road, we wanted to mark our first ever Oktobeerfest by creating a variety of Bavarian-inspired beers with a twist. From a Classic Hefeweizen to a smoky Rauchbier, there is something to suit every beer lover’s palate.


“The full selection of these special-edition beers will only be available to try at Oktobeerfest on 15th and 16th September. Tickets are selling fast – book yours now so you don’t miss out!”


Tickets cost £16 per person which includes entry, a souvenir Oktobeerfest glass and can of beer on arrival. Children accompanied by adults can attend free of charge.


Tickets for both the Friday and Saturday events are on sale now from the Stewart Brewing website which recently relaunched with a brand new design:


Stewart Brewing Oktobeerfest takes place at Stewart Brewing, Bilston Glen Industrial Estate, 26a Dryden Rd, Loanhead and is easily reached from Edinburgh city centre by bus, routes 37 and 47.
