Already available in the United Kingdom is Innis & Gunn Rare Oak Pale Ale. The offering is aged over rare Scottish oak, historically used for ship building. Rare Oak Pale Ale not only uses unique wood, but the addition of elderflower, and sweet gale (aka bog myrtle). A couple of years ago, the brewery released a draft only Oak Aged Pale, without the herb additions.
This refreshing Pale Ale has been matured over rare Scottish oak, which hasn’t been used in brewing since the days of the Anglo-Spanish wars and the Armada, when huge areas of Scottish forest were felled to build ships.
The beer is finished with the addition of sweet gale which grows wild in the Scottish Highlands and was used traditionally as an alternative to imported hops by brewing in Scotland.
Innis & Gunn Rare Oak Pale Ale will be available in 11.2 oz bottles.
Availability: 11.2 oz Bottles, Draft.
