Beer lovers were able to enjoy a selection of fine ales, glorious sunny weather and a session by DJ, film director and radio broadcaster Don Letts as the Edinburgh Craft Beer Festival kicked off.
The four-day event, featuring more than 50 breweries, is being held in the Biscuit Factory in Broughton.
Caroline Wengel, business development manager for Scotland Food and Drink and the Breweries Association of Scotland, helped bring 15 of the breweries to the event.
It is the brainchild of We Are Beer, founded by two friends, Greg Wells and Daniel Sylvester, appropriately in a pub.
A new-found love of craft beer led them to collaborate on a modern festival, celebrating modern beer.
Their first endeavour was the London Craft Beer Festival in 2013. It broke the mould as the first tasting-led festival in the UK, combined with headline music acts and food producers.
That core mission of celebrating the creativity, diversity and dynamism of modern brewing culture, led them to establish the Bristol Craft Beer Festival in 2016 and the Edinburgh Craft Beer Festival in 2017.
Their aim is to be a platform that promotes modern beer – bringing breweries, drinkers, musicians, chefs and brands together to help grow this fantastic category, be it through festivals, beer collaborations, partnerships or story-telling.
