TORONTO, ON – The Canadian office of Scotland’s Innis & Gunn has announced details of a pair of beers being released for limited summer runs.
White Oak Wheat Beer is a 6.4% abv flavoured wheat beer aged in charred North American white oak, and described as follows:
Inspired by the aromas and flavours more typically found in a cup of Earl Grey tea, this German-style wheat beer has been brewed at a warmer temperature to encourage sweeter, spicier flavours to develop. The brew has been aged over oak and then infused with dried bergamot and blood orange oil to create a fragrant and refreshing finish.
Highland Ale is a 7.4% abv strong ale aged on oak chips infused with 18-year-old Highland malt whisky. It’s described as having “a fragrant aroma, rich taste with a smooth finish, making for a beautifully balanced ale.”
Both beers will be available in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario and Newfoundland, with White Oak Wheat also being distributed in Manitoba and New Brunswick. Release dates and prices vary by province – check with local retailers for more information.
