#98. Teuchters, 26 William St, Edinburgh

Teuchters is an excellent West End neighbourhood pub with one of the best selections of real ale I have come across yet. Included on tap: the heavenly Innis & Gunn oak-aged scotch ale, at £6.50 (!) a pint. What a treat! I do not know why more pubs don't include this proficient panty-remover in its lineup, though perhaps the fact that it costs more than double what a pint of anything else will set you back is the reason for its slow uptake.

For those of you scoring at home, that is $10.30 for a pint.

The bartender looks a little surprised here, but I'm sure she is accustomed to beer aficionados taking a picture of that tap.

Teuchters was busy, but had ample seating, good decor, and good acoustics. I heartily recommend William Street as a great destination for a pub crawl, with Bert's and The Melville right across the road, but Teuchters is the place to cap it off (with a pint of Innis & Gunn!).
