So it happens that I’m coming over to taste that magnificent Tennent’s Super cask version of yours. Also to check if it’s true that you wear nothing under a kilt. Even the lasses?!
Since I’m travelling with my gf, some old stones and lady stuff places are marked on my map along basic BrewDog pubs, brewpubs from RB and top places.
Since we will be in Edinburgh for a short time basically 24-27th I have to prioritize. Thats where you come along. What places do you recommend are must and what can be skipped. My camp is pretty central (near Cowgate Bridge). Any recommendations?
Things I wan to do beside beer and some sightseeing:
Haggis- gimme haggis! We have x-mas dinner reserved already at Tower restaurant, but dunno if they have real haggis
Which JWD servers best full Eng… Scottish breakfast?
Boxing day football - Liverpool v Leicester in on and I want to see it in a good atmosphere, where?
Whisky- although I’m quite familiar with yer whiskys one or two won’t do any harm
Anything else I should see or do?
EDIT: Since I’m travelling by Irish Abomination airlines I bring no luggage with me except what I may take into cabin. So can bring over only few ticks I might find at airport after passing security.
Bow Bar is terrific little spot right near High Street tourist area. They have excellent whisky selection (and also nice beers as well). The staff were more than happy to help you make whisky selection based on series of questions like price, rarity, smokiness, smooth or bright, etc. At least when I was there a few years back.
Thank you all for everything.
My trip went rather well. And that despite of X-mas day total close down.
Nice little town. Very compact and beautiful. We managed to do quite a lot of sightseeing. I even (idk how) climbed on top of the Arthur’s seat. Legs are still sour
Beer-wise- real ale to rule 'em all! Average quality was quite high and I think only 5 or so were not to be served at all.
Places which were nice: Caley Picture house, Brewdog Lothian road, Abbothsford, Standing Order, Jolly Judge.
Brewdog Edinburgh - fck sake what kind of place is that? Queen of dive bars?! One of the worst in town for sure.
I hope to come back one day. Trip was slightly longer than bus to Tartu + airport que times. So not too bad.
