Innis & Gunn Beer & Food Matching Banquet

Absolutely brilliant dinner at the Tower Bridge Tasting Rooms (at Draft House Tower bridge). Hosting was Dougal Clark, owner-brewer, and the Draft House's very own Simon Noumar was cooking upstairs. Yours truly was crashing around as usual, generating a fair amount of smoke and light.

Wasting no time, the menu was as follows:

We kicked off with a palate-cleansing third of Innis & Gunn Original Draught (6.6%) followed by....

Grilled Kent Asparagus, Scottish Cured Salmon
Innis & Gunn Canada Day 2011 8.3%
Venison Pie infused w Innis & Gunn Rum Cask
w/ Neeps, Tatties & Curly Cale
Innis & Gunn Rum Cask 7.4%
Adam’s Treacle Tart
w/ Vanilla-infused Clotted Cream
Innis & Gunn Triple Matured 7.2%
Selection of seasonal fruits
Melville’s Strawberry Beer & Melville’s Raspberry Beer 4.1%

Dougal Clark was fascinating on the story behind Innis & Gunn and he shared several drinks with each table.

All in all a good time was had by all.

Thanks to Dougal, Adam and all the guys from I&G.
