Crombie’s butchers - putting the Innis & Gunn into Father’s Day

Crombie’s, the butcher on Edinburgh’s Broughton St, and Innis and Gunn, the Edinburgh brewer, are two favourites of the blog. Only last week I was throwing some of Crombie’s Innis and Gunn sausages on the barbecue, alongside some of their venison and wild boar sizzlers. For Father’s Day Crombie’s are running a promotion, which offers a free bottle of Innis and Gunn’s oak aged beer when you purchase four of their Innis and Gunn sausages on the 19th and 20th June.

Crombie's Innis & Gunn sausages with Innis & Gunn beer

The Innis & Gunn sausages exude the usual Crombie’s quality and have a high pork content of 70%. The addition of the beer gives the sausages a pleasing sweet caramel flavour. If you’ve never been introduced to Innis & Gunn beer, you’re missing out. Brewed in Edinburgh, it has deservedly won a string of awards - unsurprising given its unique toffee, vanilla and oak flavours. In a saturated market, Innis & Gunn offer a beer that is genuinely different.

The weather will determine the feasibility of a barbecue this weekend, but with or without good weather the Innis and Gunn sausages and beer are a great way to enjoy Sunday - a real treat for fathers everywhere. Don’t go overboard though - the beer is a whopping 6.6% abv!

Crombies is located at: 97-101 Broughton Street, Edinburgh, Midlothian, Scotland, EH1 3RZ
Telephone: 0131 557 0111. The Pork and Edinburgh Ale Sausages are priced at £9.24 per kg.

  1. This a great offer, I know what my dad is getting now !

  2. Where might one find a pub that sells Innis and Gunn beer?

  3. I know All Bar One on George St and The Tower restaurant stock Innis and Gunn

  4. Innes and Gunn is horrible. I’d recommend something like Fraoch etc

  5. I tried Innes and Gunn tihs weekend at the Edinburgh Festival and have to say it is now my favourite. It has a lovely caramel after taste and a warmth and depth of flavour like no other beer I have tasted. Very refreshing and morish and is fantastic with a whisky chaser. 5 stars for me.
