In case you missed the excitement over social media last week, Innis & Gunn have launched their first spreadable beer and the world’s first beer marmalade – Marm & Ale.
The concept for Marm & Ale came along due to Innis & Gunn launching their second bar/restaurant The Beer Kitchen in Dundee (the home of marmalade).
Throughout all of their menu in The Beer Kitchen, Innis & Gunn focus heavily on using beer as one of their core ingredients within the dishes, which also simplifies beer / food matching.
With this, Marm & Ale is no different. The fruit preserve combines Innis & Gunn oak-aged IPA with the Dundee preserve.
As an added bonus, they have also announced that they have produced a Marmalade IPA using Innis & Gunn’s trademarked beer percolator, that allows it to infuse beers with a wide range of flavours.
Dougal Sharp, Innis & Gunn Founder and Master Brewer said:
“Launching in this great city has provided us with an opportunity to do what we do best: push the boundaries of what’s possible with beer through innovation and experimentation.
“That’s why we’ve been hard at work brewing a marmalade IPA and even creating spreadable beer for adventurous foodies. We’re proud to be setting up shop in such an innovative and vibrant city, we can’t wait to share our passion for great beer with Dundonians.”
The Marmalade IPA and Marm & Ale marmalade are currently only available for a free tasting at their new Dundee Beer Kitchen, but providing it is well-received there, they may expand it into the original Beer Kitchen in Edinburgh.
