The brewer’s first limited edition bottled beer, Scrubs Lager Beer, has been matured for 100 days and is described as a “smoother and more refined version” of Innis & Gunn’s lager. The beer is available to purchase from Thursday (June 4) on the Innis & Gunn website, and all profits from the 24,000 bottles available will be donated to the charity.
The second, Innis & Gunn Rye Whiskey Cask, is the latest release from the brewer’s Atlas Series and is a nod to Canada Day. Matured in Canadian rye whiskey barrels, the beer is said to have a flavour of the “sweet and spicy notes from the rye alongside the earthiness from the Scottish malt”; it is available to order from today (Tuesday June 2).
Dougal Gunn Sharp, founder and master brewer at Innis & Gunn, said: “With both of these beers we’re raising a glass to two very important things. From Tuesday we’ll release our beer to celebrate Canada’s big day, with big bold flavours to match. On Thursday we’ll raise a glass to our incredible care workers who continue to do such important work as we navigate our way through the ongoing COVD-19 situation. Unfortunately, the work that The Care Workers’ Charity does is needed now more than ever, so we’re pleased to be able to play our part in this way.”
