Ah, the Edinburgh Festival. For one month every year, Scotland’s capital turns into a hotbed of culture, attracting comedy, theatre, art and music lovers from all over the world to the East side of the country. Edinburgh is brimming with quality entertainment during August, so we decided that those who make the pilgrimage deserve pint glasses brimming with quality beer, too.
For the entirety of August, Fyne Ales has teamed up with Underbelly to take over the bar at the popular Circus Hub venue. Situated in the centre of a temporary site in The Meadows Park, the Fyne Ales @ Circus Hub bar is pouring a range of our award-winning beer on cask and keg anyone and everyone in Edinburgh – unlike previous years, you don’t need a ticket to a Circus Hub show to enjoy a pint in the bar!
We’ve furnished the bar with a selection of our latest and greatest brews – with Jarl on cask alongside Workbench IPA, North West Hop Lager and Berryliner on keg for the whole month, plus rotating specials on both cask and keg. So far Kurgan and Atlantic Blvd, Fake Tan and Revival Juice! have been warmly received, with Lost In Time and Sunset Blvd coming soon (possibly even now, depending on when you’re reading this).
Additionally, behind the bar there’s even more Fyne Ales beers filling the fridges, so in the (incredibly) unlikely event there’s nothing on the taps that you fancy, you’ll find the likes of Jammin’, Highlander, Naughty and more available in bottles.
“We started working with the Underbelly team last year on a smaller scale and it was a big success for everyone involved, so it made sense for us to team-up again this year,” explained Fyne Ales Managing Director, Jamie Delap. “There’s so much energy and vibrancy in Edinburgh at this time of year – it’s great to be part of it and give people the chance to sample some great beers to go with their entertainment.”
Circus Hub Bar Manager Victoria Gebbie is pleased with how the partnership has worked out thus far: “There's a really positive, happy & relaxed vibe at Circus Hub this year; it seems to be a mecca for those just wanting to chill out and enjoy a drink outdoors in pretty surroundings. We’re attracting a lot of educated drinkers who are delighted by the selection and variety of quality beers on offer; it’s been a monumental year for us and we're very much looking forward to more successful collaborations with Fyne Ales in the future!"
We’re super grateful to our friends from Underbelly for inviting us to team up for this year’s Circus Hub bar, and also want to say a huge thank you to everyone who’s already been down and grabbed a pint or a bottle of beer! Circus Hub runs all the way through until 26 August, so be sure to get down to The Meadows and grab a beer and catch a show if you can (Circa: Humans is absolutely incredible).
