The inaugural edition of the Gravity Beer Festival is landing at Summerhall in September

On the 29th and 30th of September, Edinburgh will become the Craft Beer Capital of Scotland with the first edition of the Gravity Beer Festival.

Created by the teams behind Barney’s Beer and Summerhall, Edinburgh’s pioneering arts Village, the beer festival will welcome 15 breweries coming from all around the UK. With 6o lines of beers and ciders pouring during the 4 festival’s sessions, from Friday afternoon to Saturday evening.

From The Kernel to Attic Brewing, several renowned UK craft breweries have already confirmed their presence in the Scottish Capital as well as local stars like Campervan Brewery.

About Gravity Beer Festival, Amber Cordiner, Summerhall’s Head of Events said:

“In the last few years, local beer festivals have been a little thin on the ground. Considering Summerhall is such a great venue, it was a no brainer that we needed to put something exciting together with Barney’s Beer, it is a perfect partnership!”

Andrew Barnett (aka Barney) from Barney’s Beer added:

“We have so many great local brewers and thought it would be interesting to showcase some great breweries from outside Edinburgh too. This is hopefully just the beginning for Gravity Beer Festival at Summerhall!”

Local food trucks will be on-site to sustain all the hungry guests, and the team has announced working on a series of lectures for the nerdiest in the crowd.
