23 & 24 JANUARY 2019 | OLD TRUMAN BREWERY

Innis & Gunn




In 2002 Master Brewer Dougal Gunn Sharp was asked to create a beer to mature in bourbon barrels to impart a sweet, malty flavour. This beer would then be thrown out, and the barrels would go on to age spirits. But Dougal had a brain wave;
 
What if this was the start of something great?
 
What if the beer was actually getting better whilst in the barrel? Turns out, he was absolutely right and Innis & Gunn was born.
 
Since its creation in 2003, Innis & Gunn have been busy brewing up an ever growing range of flavour packed beers. In 2013 its Barrel Aged line up was joined by an award winning Lager Beer, which soon become the fastest growing Lager in Scotland, and was swiftly followed by IPAs for those who prefer a hoppier brew.
 
 
Dougal continued to create new recipes and beers, but he couldn’t stop wondering what if we had our own brewery?
 
So in 2016 Innis & Gunn took a momentous step after raising £3 million through BeerBond and acquired the Inveralmond Brewery in Perthshire. Now Dougal and the team of talented brewers are continuously experimenting with new innovations to create the beers of tomorrow.
