Saskatoon Sessions: Innis & Gunn 150 Limited Edition Maple & Thistle Rye Ale

First of all I’d like to apologize. The second half of 2017 has been pretty uneven for post publication. As in, all of one since I moved at the end of July. Part of this was the move and getting sorted and not having anything to review or any time to review it. Part of

Innis & Gunn Spiced Rum Aged Porter with Steve

Missed last week, Christmas and all. Sorry about that. Had a lovely break, and looking forward to some good drinks tonight. Innis & Gunn Spiced Rum Aged Porter is not one of them. And this is not just a by-product of my not liking rum – Steve digs rum and he gave this a lower

Innis & Gunn Secret Saison with Julia

Innis & Gunn Secret Saison. A rare beer with a rare outcome from Innis & Gunn – an utter miss. What’s a saison? It’s a kind of beer meant for “sessioning” (which I think just means “drink a bunch”) with local ingredients, low alcohol and a clean taste. This beer fails to achieve the last

Innis & Gunn Vintage 2015 with Brad, Dan & Laura

Innis & Gunn Vintage! As found in Winnipeg. As much as I love Innis & Gunn, this one’s a bit of a reach. At *twenty* dollars each, you’d be excused for forgetting it’s just beer. You pay the Tube Tax. You pay the import beer tax. You pay the bottle conditioned tax, and the 100

Round 2! Innis & Gunn Irish Whiskey Finish with Dan & Julia

A quick Round 2! today for the always excellent Innis & Gunn Irish Whiskey Finish. We first did this expression a little over a year ago, and it only appears to come out around St Paddy’s Day, hence the bare qualification for a “Round 2!” article. But it’s good stuff, and this year I can

Old Tomorrow Brewing Monty’s Golden Ryed Ale

Just a quickie review today – Beer! Old Tomorrow is a Toronto brewery that’s pretty new. They’re in a few southern and eastern Ontario pubs and the LCBO, so they’re off to a great start. This “ryed ale” is “Brewed with 100% Canadian Rye Whisky and oak“ which I’m not entirely sure what it means. If

Innis & Gunn Rum Finish with Dan

A quick little review this week, folks, and one that is probably long overdue. Innis & Gunn Rum Finish: once, many years ago, I brushed this aside with an “I don’t like it”, largely because of its rum barrel aging and my distinct distaste for rum in general. I wasn’t being assumptive; I did try

Innis & Gunn Bourbon Dark Ale with Dan

Our last post before Christmas, here’s a solid gift tip: The Innis & Gunn Holiday Pack. You get a heavy duty steel bottle opener and four bottles of beer – Original, Toasted Oak IPA, Rum Finish (review out soon) and this guy, the Bourbon Dark Ale. Part of Innis & Gunn’s Limited Edition range, there’s

Innis & Gunn White Oak Wheat Beer with Dan, Goran & Steve

The last of the new Innis & Gunn (for now) is their White Oak Wheat Beer. This is.. well, it’s a wheat beer over white oak, but maybe you figured that out. It’s also a flavoured beer, as it’s been infused with bergamot and orange. If you’re not familiar with bergamot, it’s that flavour in
