Don’t miss out – Six of the Best Craft Beer Restaurants in Edinburgh!
6. The Beer Kitchen
You can’t mention craft beer and Edinburgh without mentioning Innis and Gunn – Edinburgh’s craft brewery! Recently opened on Lothian Road, The Beer Kitchen is Innis and Gunn’s vision for how to pair the best food with the best beer. This is not your standard Weatherspoon’s pub grub. This is special. This certainly is one of the best craft beer restaurants in Edinburgh – even if it is the newest.
5. Holyrood 9A
The Holyrood 9A was a craft beer restaurant in Edinburgh before it was cool. With 20 taps they take beer seriously. This gem of a pub tucked away in the Old Town is famous for their range gourmet burgers. If you need a bite – you need Holyrood 9A.
VDeep isn’t just one of the best craft beer restaurants in Edinburgh – this is a craft beer curry house! If you haven’t heard about it yet – you have to read our post about it! This marries craft beer and curry together perfectly. Trust us – it is a match made in heaven!
3. The Hanging Bat
This isn’t the first time the Hanging Bat has been mentioned by us – it’s one of the best things to do in Bruntsfield and Lauriston! It is one of the best craft beer restaurants in Edinburgh too! They take BBQ to another level. Try not to drool when you look at their menu – we dare you!
So, BrewDog is more of a bar than a restaurant – but they have probably some of the best fresh pizzas in Edinburgh. Located right on the Cowgate, it is a perfect pitstop during a day out in the Edinburgh Festival. They only problem you’ll have is wanting to leave!
1. Illegal Jack’s
Illegal Jack’s has just reopened following a very public crowdfunding campaign. Now relocated to St Patrick’s Square, Illegal Jack’s promises the best Tex-Mex in Edinburgh washed down with local craft beer. This is a local favourite – even boasting Ian Rankin as a fan. Stop by the new place – you won’t be disappointed.
