Real Ale Events

In this section we will bring to your attention events such as pub-based mini real ale festivals. Events organised directly by the branch are listed in the Branch Diary section, and cater for members. If you are not currently a member but are thinking of joining have a look at that section to see what you might be missing. All venues are in Edinburgh unless otherwise noted.

The events that will be listed below are not necessarily organised or endorsed by CAMRA, though, naturally, we will only list here events in outlets that have a good track record with real ale.
