Innis & Gunn Original

The one that got the fascinating Innis & Gunn story started. Notes of biscuity malt and vanilla.

Rum Aged

Originally released on a limited basis, the spicy, fruity notes are now a year-round crowd favorite.

Toasted Oak IPA

Representing the best of both worlds, the IPA combines a refreshing IPA with the floral notes from its time with the oak.

White Oak Wheat

Another hybrid, this one showcases the zest of a wheat with the distinctly North American white oak character from these very particular barrels.

Bourbon Aged Dark Ale

Innis & Gunn’s new winter seasonal, the Dark Ale has already been met with great reviews. We’ll be tasting it for the first time along with you at the event.

Upon arrival, ask for the tasting event and the host will direct you toward Innis & Gunn. We’ll see you there!
