Innis and bun: exclusive beer hotdog to sell at Galloway Country Fair

One of the best parts of Summer is visiting country fairs. They are a great excuse for a great family day out. This year Galloway Country Fair is firing with both barrels as Scottish brewers Innes and Gunn join the fun with the “Gunn Dog” – a hot dog made with Gunnpowder IPA.


Galloway country fair Innis and gunn hot dogInnes and Gunn partnered with artisan hot dog trader Brigston & Co to create the Gunn Dog for the official launch of Gunpowder IPA earlier this year. And now, for the very first time, we can all have a bite all at Galloway Country Fair in August.

Claire Drysdale, co-founder of Brigston & Co said: “We’re really looking forward to serving up our special creation which is made with reduced liquor from the mash tun of Innis & Gunn’s Gunnpowder IPA.  The oak smoked dogs are made from Scottish Farm Assured beef flank and pork shoulder seasoned with a secret blend of herbs and spices and blended with reduced liquor from the ash tun of Innes and Gunn’s Gunpowder IPA.”

Better still, if you retrieve one at Galloway Country Fair over the weekend of August 18th and 19th you are in with a chance of winning an Innis & Gunn goodie bag.
