Innis & Gunn raises a glass to U.S. Beer awards

Independent brewer Innis & Gunn has won two awards for their Scottish craft beer at the U.S. Open Beer Championship, one of the largest international beer competitions.

Dominated by North American brewers, Innis & Gunn were the only Scottish brewer to win an award, and defined their category with two wins in WoodBarrel Aged Dark Beer

The brewer’s Bourbon Cask Dark took home the gold, while its Innis & Gunn Rum Aged took home the bronze prize.

The news comes after the brewer announced it announced the acquisition of The Inveralmond Brewery Limited, in Perth, back in April.

Dougal Gunn Sharp, Master Brewer and Founder of Innis & Gunn said: “We are immensely pleased to have won these awards for two of our most exciting brews. It was a highly competitive category and that makes these wins even sweeter.

“We feel these accolades vindicate our mission to push the boundaries of what beer can be. We also want to be seen as great ambassadors for Scottish innovation, what better way to do that than come first in an American beer championship.

“Our Bourbon Cask Dark Ale was initially intended to be a limited edition, but it proved so popular that we’ll be adding it to our year-round core range in the near future.”
