About Edinburgh’s Old Town Beer Tasting Tour

Discover Edinburgh like NEVER before! Join us for our beer tasting tour through Scotland’s capital city. Believe it or not, beer history in Scotland is much older than whisky dating back centuries. Many might think that whisky and beer are not related. However, it’s a little-known fact that whisky is created from an alcoholic beer base.

Join our beer tasting tour through Edinburgh and discover how these two legendary drinks are more related than you ever thought. They not only share the same ingredients, but they share some fascinating stories that you need to know if you come to Scotland. Let us tell you why beer, as well as whisky, has been for centuries one of the most important exports from Scotland to the rest of the world. Some people say that whisky is what beer wants to be when it grows up, but the truth is that beer is actually the older sister of whisky.

During the beer tasting tour around Edinburgh’s Old Town, you will be able to taste a wide variety of beers from all over Scotland. Prepare all your senses to discover flavours that you never thought you would find in a beer. Discover quirky facts about the drink and visit three off the beaten track beer venues while exploring the Old Town and Southside of Edinburgh.

Finally, let our beer experts guide you through the wonderful world of beer in Scotland through a storytelling experience full of fun facts, history and culture. Our main goal is to make you as passionate about beer as much as we are. We promise lots of fun, a wide variety of different Scottish beers and most importantly, a story to tell back home.

Not a beer fan? Don’t worry, let us show you the magic of whisky in one of our whisky tours in Edinburgh or Glasgow.
