Beer Street Journal (ok, it’s just me), got a rare opportunity to spend some time with the Founder and Master Brewer of Innis & Gunn, based in Edinburgh, Scotland.
If you live on the east coast of the United States, chances are you’ve seen one of the iconic bottles with the Innis & Gunn branding on it. For me, my first taste of Innis & Gunn Original opened up the world of barrel aged beer for me. I’ve never forgotten it.
I’ve always wanted to know more about this beer, and a few days with Dougal gave me a new perspective on the brewery and its origins. I think I love their beer even more now I spent time getting to know where it all came from.
There are two videos I did with Mr. Sharp. This first one gives you the background how the brewery got its start, and how Innis & Gunn Original is made. The second (coming soon) gives you the rundown on the current seasonals, and a sneak peek of a couple of things to come.
