Great selection of beer and gin, fantastic place at any time but especially on a Friday night. Food is not too bad either

Nice place with amazing choice of beers. The menu includes dozens of different beers plus there is even more on the board!

Rotating selection of good beers that you’ve never heard of. Very popular on a Friday and Saturday and after work.

Great bar albeit not a lot of room and pretty narrow selection for food.
For beer lovers this is well worth a visit though.

What’s the beer equivalent of foodies? Brewies? Anyway, they’ll be right at home here, with some of the best choices of beers in Edinburgh. You’re out of luck if your tastes veer more mainstream, but don’t mention that in a review or you’ll get roasted.

Rotating selection of craft beers, lots of seating considering the size of the space. Always have a wide variety of things to try.

Great pub with a wide selection of craft beers on tap with prices and ABV shown. Once they’re gone, they’re gone! Also have a few good gins available.

Nice bar food selection also to help prevent a sore head in the morning..

The first proper "craft" beer bar in Edinburgh. Looking a bit tired and in need of a freshen up at the moment but always guaranteed a great beer choice, which is all that really matters.

Probably the best craft beer bar in Edinburgh. Amazing selection of beers from all over the world, and good tex mex food too, though it’s better for meat lovers than veggies though. Go here if you love great beer and good music.

Per recommendation by a local friend, I checked out this awesome local joint. I was thrilled with the eccentric and comfortable atmosphere. It's certainly popular and decidedly hip.
