Innis & Gunn Rare Oak Pale Ale, Now Stateside

Innis & Gunn Rare Oak Pale Ale

Innis & Gunn Rare Oak Pale Ale is the latest release to hit the United States. The

This new bottle offering makes use of Scottish oak’s unique flavor that Innis & Gunn says hasn’t been used in brewing for hundreds of years.  Additionally, the brewery uses elderflower during the maturation process, and air-dried sweet gale for added flavor depth.

According to Stephen Harrod Buhner, award-winning American author of more than 20 books on nature and herbal medicines, the ancient beer was fabled to have had mildly narcotic qualities that would ‘stimulate the mind, create euphoria and enhance sexual drive.’ (To note, Innis & Gunn does not purport that Rare Oak Pale Ale carries the same qualities today.)

Innis & Gunn Rare Oak Pale Ale is available for limited time in 12oz bottles, and draft.

Style: Pale Ale (w/ Sweet Gale, Elderflower. Oak Aged.)
Hops Super Styrian, Whitbread Golding
Malt I&G Ale Malt, Golden Promise Malt, Crystal Malt, Wheat
