One of Edinburgh’s newest bars, Innis & Gun at 32 Potterrow popped up earlier this summer to showcase Innis & Gunn’s unique oak-aged beers.
Mouth-watering as the beers are, the bar’s range of gourmet pub grub classics is just as tempting.
Take up today’s Big Deal with Innis & Gunn @ 32 Potterrow and you can sample both – possibly the finest definition of a win-win situation.
2 course meal
The offer is for two people to each tuck into a starter and main course from the bar’s food menu. Also included is a bottle of Original, Blonde or Rum Finish Innis & Gunn beer for each diner.
Available seven days a week, noon-9pm, the deal is for any starter and any main course with the exception of the sirloin steak which will attract a £5 supplementary charge.
The menu at Innis & Gunn has a strong Scottish accent. Think along the lines of haggis, neeps and tatties or steamed Scottish salmon with ginger, coriander and chilli.
Many of the dishes use Innis & Gunn’s unique oak-aged beer. The fish and chips are made with Innis & Gunn Blonde beer batter while the steak pie features diced rump steak slow cooked in an Innis & Gunn reduction.
There is even the option to have Scottish mussels cooked in an Innis & Gunn sauce as well as in the more conventional white wine.
Alternatively, try one of the six chunky burgers. We like the sound of the venison burger which is flavoured with herbs and juniper berries then topped with buffalo mozzarella and plum tomato chutney. Naturally, it comes with fries.
Oak aged beer
Innis & Gunn are Edinburgh-based brewers and their beers are all aged in oak barrels that were previously used to store whisky, rum or bourbon.
The process adds delicious notes of toffee, vanilla and oak to the beer. From extensive personal experience, this Big Deal writer can happily recommend them all. The only difficult part of this Big Deal will be choosing your beer: spicy Rum Finish; the lighter, fruitier Blonde or the smooth toffee flavours of the Original? The choice is yours.
