magine & Gunn asked, and Canadians answered.

 

Last month, in their first-ever Canadian Imagine & Gunn competition, Innis & Gunn, the Scottish craft brewer, asked Canadians to share their ideas for a limited-edition beer that would be sold across Canada in 2018. After reviewing thousands of entries, Innis & Gunn's Founder & Master Brewer, Dougal Gunn Sharp, has chosen 8 finalists and one is from Chilliwack, B.C.

 

Eddy Factor's Rye & Ginger Ale, an Amber Ale-style beer aged in whisky barrels to bring out that classic Canadian Rye and Ginger cocktail flavour, is one of 8 beer ideas chosen to move on, and the public is asked to vote for their favourite beer here.  

If selected, Factor would travel to the Innis & Gunn brewery in Scotland in January to brew his beer alongside Dougal and his team. And the beer - named "Eddy's Choice" would be sold across Canada next fall across Canada next fall.
