Can’t stand another St. Patricks Day of sports bars filled with atrocious and tacky green beers? Well, the holiday is coming up and Kindred Spirits is the beer that you need to be turning your attention to, this year.
This unique, limited edition dark beer arrives as the first collaboration between Innis & Gunn, one of Scotland’s most popular international craft brewers, and Tullamore D.E.W Irish Whiskey. It only makes sense – malted barley is a key ingredient in beer and whiskey, so why not unite the brothers from another mother in a lip-smacking stout?
instead of celebrating Irish and Scottish culture with suspicious green dye, Kindred Spirits pays homage by being matured with the finest triple distilled, triple blend Irish whisky barrels from Tullamore D.E.W. This results in an incredibly luscious and smooth craft stout that’s chock full of flavor. Innis & Gunn infuses Kindred Spirits with a vibrant richness of taste, while the Tullamore D.E.W balances it out with dominant coffee and dark chocolate flavour, featuring oak and vanilla notes. This is a collaboration that makes sense and works in delicious harmony.
Kindred Spirits decided to take their celebration of Irish and Scottish culture a step further and pay homage to its colourful music by bringing together musicians from both countries (Irish group Ash and Scottish group Frightened Rabbit) to collaborate on a reimagining of a traditional Scottish folk song for “Kindred Sessions.”
Another collaboration that harmonizes well together, and celebrates the Celtic unity that runs strong between Ireland and Scotland. Kindred Spirits recognizes the stunning craftsmanship that’s come out of these two places, and the innovative stout itself is the perfect representation of that partnership
If you’re looking for a sophisticated, powerful beer that packs a robust punch and will make your St. Patricks Day more pleasurable, we suggest turning to Kindred Spirits instead.
