Saint John Beer Lover Brews at Innis & Gunn

 (Saint John, NB) - Late last year, Innis & Gunn challenged Canadians to share their ideas for the brand’s newest limited-edition beer. Imaginations ran wild and thousands of flavour ideas poured in - but in the end, only one winning beer flavour would make it to store shelves. Don Guimond saw his creation, “Don’s Choice”, hit the shelves at ANBL.
The beer, a Black IPA with Coconut and Rhubarb, was brewed in February at the Innis & Gunn brewery in Scotland by Guimond and Innis & Gunn Master Brewer Dougal Gunn Sharp. Guimond won the trip to the brewery after Sharp chose his flavour idea to be the brand’s newest limited-edition brew as part of Innis & Gunn’s “Imagine & Gunn” competition. The program was created by the brewery to give fans a chance to collaborate with the Innis & Gunn brewing team on new innovations and Guimond is the first-ever Canadian winner.
Don’s Choice is available at all ANBL stores, and in select provinces across Canada for a limited time beginning in mid-October. The black IPA was brewed with chocolate and crystal malt to give it an amazing jet black colour. Flavours of coconut, tropical hops and rhubarb combine with the malts and the barrels for an unforgettable taste experience.
Congrats Don.
