Stephen Crawley, managing director of Caledonian Brewery, said:  “We’re really excited about the Deuchars Beermat Fringe. It’s the first time something like this has run alongside the Fringe and is a great way for anyone who has a talent they want to shout about to be a part of the biggest, most exciting arts festival around.

This was not all they had to say though, they also wanted to reiterate their continued support for the event.

“This is our fourth year of supporting the Fringe and we see the partnership as ‘the greatest double act’ as there’s an obvious connection between us — Edinburgh. We’re proud of our associations with the city and both organisations value their balance of history and modernity.

Kath M Mainland, chief executive of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society, said: “The 2013 Edinburgh Festival Fringe is the biggest yet. Thousands of performers will visit the city this August, as well as audience members from across the world. The Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society will be here to support them all and help them to enjoy every second of the festival.

When asked to comment on the competition, Deuchars had this to say:

“Having one of the best writers in the country be a part of the judging panel is brilliant. I’m personally a huge fan of Rebus in particular, and it obviously makes it even better that Inspector Rebus’ favourite pint is our very own Deuchars IPA. We’re looking forward to seeing what the public have to offer — good luck to all entrants.”

“The Edinburgh Festival Fringe has something for everyone. We are proud to continue our partnership with Deuchars IPA and incredibly grateful for their continued sponsorship.”

So, whether you’re a professional, or simply someone who has a flair to share that will make us smile, laugh (or cry!), we want to hear about it.
