When you are near Ashton Lane, pop into Innis & Gunn. They have a great choice of craft beers and pretty tasty food.

To get a taster of the beers on offer, ask and they’ll give you a selection of 5 very different beers.

  • Innis & Gunn Lager Beer – Refreshing and full flavoured by adding zesty aromatic hops.
  • Innis & Gunn Original – The Flagship beer, aged in a bourbon barrel brings flavours like vanilla and toffee combined with the malty character of their Scotch Ale.
  • Innis & Gunn Session IPA – A tropical grapefruit, berry and lemon zest flavour.
  • Innis & Gunn Gunnpowder IPA – A fully charged, hoppy character with orange, grapefruit and pine flavours.
  • Innis & Gunn Blood Red Sky – Jamaican rum barrels meet Scottish red beer in an explosion of cool, spicy rum notes, vanilla and rich fruit.

I’ve never really taken to lager or craft beer however I was pleasantly surprised tasting Innis & Gunn’s selection.

My top 3:

  • Innis & Gunn Original
  • Innis & Gunn Blood Red Sky
  • Innis & Gunn Session IPA

I could quite easily enjoy a pint of the Original chilling on Ashton Lane.

Now onto the food – The Scotch Egg is simply delish!

‘A free range egg, sausage & Stornoway black pudding, Scotch ale brown sauce.’

Stornoway Black Pudding is my favourite and works perfectly with the sausage & egg. The light crisp crumb finishes it off nicely.

The Scotch ale brown sauce works a treat with it.

One of the best Scotch eggs I’ve tasted and a great snack to have with my Original Craft Beer.

So pop in to Innis & Gunn – you won’t be disappointed – great food, great drink, great venue!
