  • Cannot express my gratitude enough. Our guide Lisa had the most detailed knowledge, not only of beer but also of Scotland. She was incredibly kind and easy to speak with. We came out of the tour feeling like beer connoisseurs! The beers on the tour were Scottish - a nice touch. We got to try beers of all sorts! The only thing I would change is have the guides drink more beer with us! This is a beer tour after all! đŸ˜‰ Overall, 10/10. Lisa is amazing and so was this tour!
  • My husband and I had a wonderful experience with Sara learning so much about the history and tasting experience of beer and whisky in Edinburgh. Particularly fascinating as we are farmers growing malting barley, one of the main ingredients. Great to find out more about the whole process in relation to the historical time
  • My wife and I did the tasting in the underground vaults during our honeymoon. Our tour guide (Jenny) was knowledgeable and a lot of fun! She did such a fantastic job including our whole group in the experience. The variety of beers was well balanced with something for everyone, and it was very cool to hear about Edinburgh brewing history. Our tour was particularly memorable in that we had a German brewmaster also on the tour, and he very politely added extra context or information about brewing when asked. Overall the tour was very well run and a great diversion for the evening!
  • Despite the rain, our guide Jenny was up for the task. Ever cheerful and pleasant, her knowledge of Scotland’s historic beer past was a great lead into the various tastings we were poured. Local sours, stouts, pale ales, and more were enjoyed. Thanks Jenny...fantastic tour!!! Keep an open mind to trying new craft brews. I highly recommended it.
  • One of the best tours Ive been at, both when it comes to beer knowledge but also the history lesson you get during the tour. Lisa, our guide, was awesome and had alot of interesting things to say about the town and its beers history! If you are interested in beers and scottish history this is a tour for you!
