Chris the bartender (pictured here), wins the award for friendliest person from Edinburgh. Hands down. He actually talked to us and asked us questions, and didn't just try to avoid making eye contact with us like so many of the people who live and work here.
He talked with us about Hibs Football, local beer, traveling, other pubs, my blog, how he was hired for his smile, how if you drink here as a regular you get your own coaster... anything. All the while I enjoyed quite a nice beer by the name of Misty Law by Kelburn Brewery. Linus had his first Caledonian 80, which he quite enjoyed.
Here's a funny picture I found on the Interwebs of the outside of the pub.
A great first visit to the Rose Street Brewery, and definitely will not be our last.
