VOTE FOR CANADA'S NEXT GREAT BEER FLAVOUR
On the heels of our sweep in the 2015 US Open Beer Championships, our year-round beers have pulled off another trifecta of heavy medals. This time the honours come from this side of the Atlantic, in the 2015 edition of the International Beer Challenge (IBC). In the IBC’s Specialty category, Innis & Gunn Rum Finish won a gold medal, Innis & Gunn Original won a silver, and Toasted Oak IPA earned a bronze. To top off our second sweep in three months, our Scotch Whisky Porter also won a bronze medal in the 2015 IBC’s Specialty category.
We’re pretty good at picking up awards, but when push comes to shove, we brew beers that we love to drink, so winning awards for their quality is the icing on the cake.
The quality and flavour of our beer has always been our first and foremost priority at Innis & Gunn. From our choice of malt and our malting specifications, to our selecting of hops in the field and the barrels and oak we use for maturation, every element has to be right. And if it’s not, we’ll go back to the drawing board.
Since 2009, we’ve won a whopping 13 medals in the famed IBC. This year’s IBC contest judged over 600 beers from over 200 breweries in 30 countries. (That’s a lot of beer and some very tough competition.)
This year’s IBC beer-judging panel also included many of the UK’s top beer experts and judges, including Jeff Evans, Adrian Tierney-Jones, Melissa Cole, Glenn Payne,
Tim Hampson, Jerry Bartlett and Pete Brown. Thank you, judges, for giving our beers the thumbs up.
Oh and in July our three core beers - Original, Rum Aged and Toasted Oak IPA - all won medals in the 2015 US Open Beer Championships. Not a bad haul if we say so ourselves.
