Founded in 2018 and based out of Edinburgh, Cold Town Beer initially established a reputation for their mightily impressive Cold Town Lager. Since then they’ve gone from strength to strength and now brew a huge range of beer from hazy IPA’s to Martini Ales.
The team at Cold Town take us through how it all began…
“We started our brewing journey from very humble beginnings in early 2018, setting up a microbrewery inside an old, empty church on Edinburgh’s Grassmarket. It was a small start and we were supplying a few local bars with our classic Cold Town Lager.
As more bars invited us to join the party, we quickly realised that we were gonna need a bigger boat. We expanded into our main base of operations on Dunedin Street to let us supply a variety of bars and restaurants in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Stirling and Fife. In early 2019 we were lucky enough to transform our home into Cold Town House, featuring an evolved version of our microbrewery alongside some of the most iconic views of Edinburgh Castle.
We were born and raised in the bar scene, and all of our canned drinks have come after being tried, tested and reviewed in the bars.”
Ed, head brewer at Cold Town takes us through their approach to brewing.
“It’s really easy to get caught up in which breweries are competing to be the freshest, hoppiest, tastiest, or even the most angst-ridden but that’s just not us! Life isn’t a competition – we’re here to make good f✱✱✱ing beer and to have a great time doing it.
We believe in making beer for beer’s sake. The only reason you order a 2nd pint is because the first one tastes so damn fine. Our focus is making sure that our drinks have a wicked taste, with a wee nod to our wicked sense of humour of course.”
For tonight’s beer, we have Hopped Up Wheat, Cold Town's take on a German Weisse beer. Notes of banana and clove are paired against the tropical feel of German, American and UK hops. Super refreshing and super session-able, we just love it!
