Innis & Gunn sent us some samples for a birthday party of one of our human friends. Our human friend is Scottish and has been missing Innis & Gunn beer since they are not readily available in San Diego.
We held the party at Grubby’s in Carlsbad so we could watch soccer (football) matches and enjoy the wonders in our box of goodies from Scotland. In the box were samples of the following beers:
- Innis & Gunn Original
- Innis & Gunn Rum Aged
- Innis & Gunn Irish Whiskey Aged
- Innis & Gunn Toasted Oak IPA
- Innis & Gunn Rare Oak Pale Ale
- Innis & Gunn White Oak Wheat Beer
- Innis & Gunn Highland Ale (a scotch ale matured over oak chips infused with Highland whisky)
While we don’t remember much of what happened that night (it was a party after all), we did take some general notes on the Innis & Gunn beers. Our favorite was definitely the limited release Highland Ale which was smooth as silk and extremely tasty. We had tasted the other variations previously, but it was amazing to see our human friend’s eye light up when he saw all the variations. He had not had some of them and he was pretty excited about that. Another standout was the Irish Whiskey Aged.
We all had an amazing time (as far as we can remember) and we want to thank Innis & Gunn for providing the samples to make our Scottish human friend’s birthday all the more special.
