Stewart Brewing team

Stewart Brewing — which will play host to the Edinburgh Beer Festival on May 13 — has announced several limited-edition collaboration beers that will be available at the event.

These will include an ice cream style ale with Over Langshaw Farmhouse Ice Cream, and a kiwi-hopped double IPA in partnership with local brewer Cross Borders.

There will also be: a blood orange saison, in collaboration with Liverpool Craft Beer; a rye lager, with Eyeball Brewing; and two fruit-infused Berliner weisse brew with Top Out Brewery — one with peach and passion fruit, and the other with raspberry / blackcurrant and hibiscus.

Edinburgh Beer FestivalIn addition to these new creations, Flying Panda — which was conceived when Stewart Brewing’s head brewer teamed up with the head brewer at PandaBrew, in China — will be back on the menu. Problem Solved, a successful collaboration with De Molen, of the Netherlands, and Cross Roads, last year’s beer festival trans-Atlantic collaboration with the Crux Fermentation Project, will also return.

Stewart Brewing co-founder, Jo Stewart, said: “We really enjoy getting together with quality craft breweries and seeing what we can create when we combine forces. It’s always a fun and educational experience, and the results are fantastic.

“Of course, we’ll have all of our old favourites available at the festival, but we’re excited to be able to offer something completely different to the norm.”

Tickets to the Edinburgh Beer Festival cost £15 per person which includes entry, a souvenir glass and can of beer on arrival. Children accompanied by adults can attend free of charge. Tickets are available now on the Stewart Brewing website
