Innis & Gunn is planning to launch its second bar & restaurant venue, The Beer Kitchen by Innis & Gunn, in Dundee.  The company aims to build on the success of the brand’s first site in Edinburgh which opened last summer. Innis & Gunn’s, Founder and Master Brewer, Dougal Sharp said, “Dundee is a vibrant, thriving city and with the huge redevelopment that’s happening it was always top of our list of cities to launch in as soon as we could.  We want to open Dundonian drinkers’ eyes to what real beer means to us at Innis & Gunn, in our own relaxed way that’s worked really well for us at our first venue in Edinburgh.  We’ve zero tolerance for second rate, tasteless beer but our bars are not about us dictating personal taste – we want our venues to change the world of beer for the better by being flag wavers for incredible, flavor packed brews, not fixated on selling ‘flash in the pan’ beers that are all beard and no trousers. It’s our no nonsense approach to quality and real flavor in our beers and food that we hope will go down well with the good folk of Dundee.”
Architects Morgan McDonnell have been briefed to roll out the brand’s relaxed Scandi- Scottish style interior design at the venue at 10 South Tay Street, which alongside the Edinburgh premises, is G1 owned. The 3,700 square feet site will feature limited edition oak aged cask beers in an exposed beer cellar and 2 x 5 hectolitre tanks serving Innis & Gunn’s award-winning unpasteurized lager fresh from the brewery.  The kitchen offering will include pub classics with a beer ‘flavor’, alongside chopped and charred and low and slow style dishes. David Hall, is the man in charge of the roll out of the concept, and he is planning another two sites by the end of 2016.
