#133. Greenmantle, 44 West Crosscauseway, Edinburgh

I liked this pub. On yet another stretch of North Bridge that has a different name, and close to the university, this place has a lot of character.

I was happy to find a seasonal ale called Bread of Heaven from Brains, one of my favourite breweries. According to their website, this beer is
named to embody the spirit and passion of the Welsh Nation, Bread of Heaven is handcrafted to celebrate Brains’ sponsorship of the Welsh National Rugby Team and is the official ale of the 2005 and 2008 Grand Slam.

Its rugby ball-shaped logo features the WRU Official Ale logo and the words ‘Bread of Heaven’ and ‘feed me till I want no more’ from the famous Welsh hymn, ‘Guide Me O Thou Great Redeemer’.

Not sure I care for this mixing of religion and beer, though.
