Visit Edinburgh’s longest established non-continuously operating brewery.
A short 15 minute walk from the Old Town you’ll find Summerhall, home to Barney’s Beer. The site originally opened as a brewery in the 1700s before converting to a veterinary school. The university moved out and Barney’s moved in.
Join us for a behind the scenes tour at the brewery followed by tasting at the onsite bar.
Our tours are delivered in partnership with the award winning, ScotBeer Tours.
£13-25 per person / 1-1.5 hours
Explore Summerhall and discover the history of brewing on Edinburgh’s Southside before stepping into the brewery. Hear the story of Barney’s Beer and delve into the brewing process and ingredients before heading to the onsite bar to enjoy a personalised tutored tasting.
Gift cards, private tours and non-drinker tickets available.
We have been many times to Edinburgh and this was our first time doing a beer tour and we will definitely do another! Jenny the guide was amazing so friendly and informative and she made the tour fun. We will be back for some more beer tasting!
Really enjoyed our tour of Barney's Brewery and two other pubs. Would recommend to friends and as a gift in the future!
This Brewery is a perfect fit for this type of tour. It is small enough to be able to visually see the full brewing process and the Barney's tour guide was superb. This is a great day out, perfect for those with little beer knowledge all the way to beer fans.
