Innis & Gunn Toasted Oak IPA with Dan & Ryan

The first out of the Summer Mixed Pack, the Innis & Gunn Toasted Oak IPA! Always great to see a new Innis & Gunn. There’s a nice amount of information on the website, like that this is wheat malt with a specific kind of hops (I don’t know hops). It also mentions that this isn’t

Innis & Gunn Irish Whiskey Finish with Dan & Ryan

Sometimes St Paddy’s Day is actually St Paddy’s Week, because we love to reinforce European ethnic stereotypes whenever and wherever possible. And what better way to lower liver function as a celebration of Irish culture than with a Scottish beer? Scottish beer that’s finished in Irish whiskey casks, that is.  iScotch loves Innis & Gunn

Innis & Gunn Treacle Porter with Ryan

Last new item from the Innis & Gunn 2013 Collection, the Treacle Porter. Not to be confused with the Winter Treacle Porter, apparently, as I mentioned in the review of the Bourbon Stout. We’ve been doing a lot more beer reviews lately, and we’ve got a bunch coming up too. They’re all different kinds of

Innis & Gunn Oloroso Cask with Dan, Goran & Ryan

SURPRISE! we found a sherry-casked beverage that doesn’t suck! (*) note to daily readers or at-work binge readers, this is not the other new beer from the Collection 2013. Oloroso is one of those geographically-specific, european sort-of wines, like Port, Sauterne, Madeira, etc, so it is meant to impart a very specific addition to whatever

Innis & Gunn Bourbon Stout with Goran

So, uh… don’t get mad, but I confused the Treacle Porter in this year’s collection with the Winter Treacle Porter we already reviewed and just enjoyed it without writing anything down or thinking about taste notes or you people. Sorry. We’re gonna grab some more kits and do that but it’ll be in a bit,

Innis & Gunn Strong Beer Collection 2013

Dudes and dudettes, it’s that time of year again! NO NOT THAT TIME IT’S STILL NOVEMBER. ffs. It’s the new Innis & Gunn Collection time! Head’s up, I can’t give you the LCBO link because they haven’t updated their website and are still showing 2011’s kit for 2011’s price. In this kit you get: a

Innis & Gunn Scottish Pale Ale with Ryan

Another tasty new Innis & Gunn brew. Good and light for summer, while retaining the classic I&G robustness. It’s a push towards the craft beer hoppiness, but manages to provide the flavour without that hop spice. A good balance. Simon – Smells like Molson Export? good lighter beer, very very smooth, sweet, slight pine. Ryan

Innis & Gunn Canadian Cherrywood Finish with Ryan

Another year, another Innis & Gunn Canadian edition.  This time, they haven’t tied it to Canada Day, which widens their sales window significantly. The guy at the LCBO mentioned large numbers of boxed I&G bottles left until Christmas, since people weren’t going to buy Canada Day beer from late July on.  Unless they are like
