Edinburgh Beer Festival

Visitors to Stewart Brewing’s Edinburgh Beer Festival earlier this year


Stewart Brewing has announced its first ever Oktobeerfest event, coming this September, with limited edition Bavarian-style beers, as well as old favourites and award-winners, such as Radical Road, Jack Back, Hollyrood and Ka Pai.

In addition, Oktobeerfest will feature a selection of street food vendors, such as Well Hung & Tender. There will also be music from the likes of The Citizens, who went down a storm at the Edinburgh Beer Festival in May, and Stadtkapelle Lochgelly oompah band.

OktobeerfestOktobeerfest will take place over two days, with an adults-only event on Friday, September 15, from 6pm until 10pm, and a family-friendly event on Saturday, September 16, from noon until 8pm.

Jo Stewart, founder of Stewart Brewing, said: “Following the success of our annual Edinburgh Beer Festival, with tickets selling out ahead of the event and amazing feedback from guests, we didn’t want to wait a whole year to hold another festival at our brewery. Oktoberfest is a key date in the beer drinker’s calendar so it felt like the perfect time to do this.

“Similar to our May event, we’ll be offering our popular array of beers, but with some special one-off brews thrown into the mix, too. We want it to be a day everyone can come along and enjoy so, in addition to craft beer, Stewart Brewing Oktobeerfest will offer a selection of other drinks and delicious street food, accompanied by music from brilliant local bands.”

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
