TORONTO, ON – Innis & Gunn, the Scottish company best known for its variety of strong oak-aged ales, has announced that its next beer to be exported to Canada is one that that is quite different from what is usually expected from the brand.
Innis & Gunn Lager is a 4.6% abv Helles-style golden lager that Innis & Gunn founder Dougal Sharp describes as follows:
I wanted to give our consumers a refreshing but flavourful lager that would deliver a really rewarding taste experience in the same way they’ve grown to expect through our oak-aged beers. This recipe uniquely uses Golden Naked Oats for a subtle nuttiness and rich mouthfeel, lager malt and large quantities of Super Styrian and Styrian Goldings hops for bitterness and aroma. We will also be using our own yeast and a specially designed programme of liquor treatments to enhance the characteristics we get from the malt and oats.
Innis & Gunn Lager will be available in 500 ml cans in British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario, New Brunswick and Newfoundland, and in cans and six-packs of bottles in Alberta. Prices and distribution details will vary by province.
