    What to Expect
    On this shared group tour, come to discover the story of Edinburgh Beer Factory, borne out of a passion for lager and Scotland, equally. And come to discover the story of a great Scot, the ‘Godfather of Pop Art’, Eduardo Paolozzi. The tour will explore more about Paolozzi and how he came to be our muse.

    Of course, there’s plenty of beer talk too. Our brewers will walk you through our lager-making process, from blank canvas to final masterpiece. You’ll even get the chance to taste the raw ingredients and the unfiltered brew!

    There will also be an open question policy – nothing is off limits so you’ll not need to leave any stone unturned.

    Please arrive at the brewery 5-10 minutes prior to start time. Tours tickets include a brewer-led tour, two half pints of Paolozzi, a tutored tasting (from one of our brewers) of the unfiltered version direct from our brewing tanks, snack food, and a £5 voucher for our gift shop.
