Innis & Gunn unveils new Leith outlet

CRAFT brewer Innis & Gunn will celebrate the opening of its fourth brewery taproom tomorrow (August 21).

Located at The Shore in Leith, the new taproom – which features a large outdoor seating area and a fresh food menu and is designed to “give consumers the best possible experience of the brand and its beers” – will open its doors at 3pm on Friday.

Twelve jobs are expected to be created as a result of the new outlet.

Innis & Gunn founder Dougal Gunn Sharp said: “We’re feeling incredibly fortunate to be able to continue with our growth plans during this difficult and uncertain time. In the past few months our team have excelled. The business is in great shape and, now that the hospitality sector is starting to open up again, we are looking to the future so that means progressing with our planned retail expansion.

“We are also pleased to be able to create jobs at a time of such uncertainly for many. We look forward to welcoming the first customers through the door from Friday. We are also committed to supporting our on-trade partners as they re-open and get back on their feet.”

Innis & Gunn’s brewery taprooms are located in Glasgow, Dundee, and Edinburgh city centre.
