Edinburgh Skeptics’ Critical Drinking event takes place at the Old Bell Inn on Causewayside on Sundays. All members and non-members are welcome to this informal social event designed to promote fellowship and networking among skeptics, critical-thinkers, and like-minded individuals.

Critical Drinking provides an opportunity for skeptics to talk, share ideas (and, yes, drink) in a casual, relaxed atmosphere. We discuss the issues of the day and whatever else is on our minds. But most of all, we have fun while promoting skepticism, science, and rationality.

Like pub quizzes? Know stuff? Don’t know stuff but like pub quizzes anyway? Ed Skeps fields a team at the pub quiz at the Old Bell Inn on Sunday nights more-or-less every week. Join us and help increase our knowledge base (and give both teams a fighting chance if we get split up)! The quiz is scheduled to begin around 7:30 pm, so aim to join us at the Old Bell a little before that.

Don’t drink? Don’t let that stop you from joining us! Some of the world’s most famous skeptics are teetotallers, and we are happy to have you!

Visiting a Critical Drinking location from out of town? Stop on by! Skeptics are a friendly bunch and there’s always room for one more!

And now it's time for an important public service announcement! Remember, children, that critical drinking means drinking responsibly. If there’s one thing science has taught us, it’s the effects of alcohol on the human body.
