Innis & Gunn has launched a bar in Glasgow's Argyle Street Arches, which will offer customers a stream of exclusive new beers from its 500l capacity on-site brewery.

The Scottish craft brewer has invested a six-figure sum in the venue, situated in the food and drink hub. It will pour 14 draft craft beers, including Innis & Gunn Lager straight from the tank, and its full range of IPAs and barrel-aged beers.

‘Innis & Gunn Tank Lager is as fresh as it can be unpasteurised, coming straight from the brewery to the tanks in the bar,’ founder and master brewer Dougal Gunn Sharp told Imbibe.

‘One of the key benefits of the onsite brewery will be the choice on the bar that our on-site brews will add. Beer drinkers visiting Argyle Street Arches can look forward to a stream of new beer flavour and style combinations that will be available exclusively.’

Innis & Gunn also operates beer kitchens in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee, and a brewery in Perthshire.

Its limited-edition Mangoes on the Run IPA was named one of the top new brews of the summer by Imbibe’s beer and cider editor Susanna Forbes.
