Beer lovers take note!



Between Wednesday, 24th October and Sunday, 11th November the Wetherspoon Real Ale Festival will be taking place at five venues in Edinburgh and many more nearby. 50 real ales and ciders, some brewed specifically for this event, will be on offer including 10 overseas ales hailing from as far afield as Japan, Australia and Canada. Many are specialist brews containing such diverse ingredients as heather, grapefruit and elderberries so there will be something to suit every palate. The event promises to be easy on the pocket too as all beers will be between £1.79 and £1.99 per pint.

I have listed the venues in and around Edinburgh below along with a full list of the products that will be available however if you wish to learn more, including detailed tasting notes, head to www.jdwrealale.co.uk . As a big chain, Wetherspoon pubs are sometimes ridiculed, but they are known for championing cask ales and low prices and their venues don't play music, which I personally prefer as I won't end up hoarse at the end of a night!

The Standing Order, George Street.
Alexander Graham Bell, George Street.
