I had been looking forward all week to coming here and the pub did not disappoint. Wish I had scheduled more time here. Eight of the keg lines featured Alpha State Brewery beers after a MtB last night.
Hawkshead - ITI (little NZPA) 3.50ExcellentGolden, clean, crisp and very hoppy. Long bitter finish.
Pilot - Citrablonde4.00ExcellentI’m the sort of chap who walks into a pub, sees the word ‘Citra’ on a pump clip and buys the beer quickly before it runs out, without even focussing on the other clips. This was the Full Citra.
Left Handed Giant - Porter5.00AcceptableA rather sour, black Porter.

About the Hanging Bat

Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in Edinburgh, Edinburgh, City of, EH3 9AB.

A typically urban, craft beer bar established in 2012 and aiming to sell the very best of British beer. Seating on three levels and a tiny yard at the rear. The gents urinals are fashioned from former beer kegs – no information so far on the ladies facilities. 14 keg lines and six handpumps on the bar, plus a massive bottled beer range. The pub organises many ‘Meet the Brewer’ nights and other beery events. Draught beers are sold in third or two-thirds measures only – no pints.
