I bought a voucher for the beer and cheese tasting (which is amazing value). The beer school was a 2 hour taste experience and one I would highly recommend. A great way to expand your beer horizons and learn more about brewing and brewdog. Fun,...More

Brewdog offers an extensive selection of craft beers. If you don't particularly enjoy craft beers then this probably isn't the best place for you. They do offer spirits too.

This was the third brewdog pub I visited, and as always it was a really pleasant evening. We stopped by for one beer, but stayed for another two. Great beer, big choice and great atmosphere.

If you like to drink a good beer and have been visiting Edinburgh go to the Brewdog and drink a good beer on tap eat a pizza and buy a t-shirt. :D

Just visited Brewdog and had first proper IPA session ever. I absolutely loved it !! Nice composition of IPA's so everyone can find something special. We have been offered trial drinks before our orders. Nice looking pizza served as well. Positive staff and people.

Came here for my husband's 40th birthday, as he is a shareholder and wanted to claim his free pint. The owner was really rude and gruff as he didn't have the correct pass. We would rather have just paid for the pint than have had...More

Hi there Maz, I'm sorry that you met with a gruff response yesterday. We obviously try our hardest to be as inviting as possible. In this case it seems like the staff members wish to check that your husband was indeed an EFP got in...More

We stopped for a drink and ended up having 3 more. Excellent beers and friendly staff. Pretty cheap, craft beers around 4-5£ (pint). Very small so it was hard to get a seat (monday night).

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
