Drink of the Week: Innis & Gunn Canada Day 2012 beer

Happy Canada Day this weekend! No cocktail today for the DOTW. Canada Day weekend calls for a nice cold beer, don’t you think? And while this one isn’t made in the country, there are evidently enough Canuck-loving-Scots around to make a limited edition oak-aged brew possible. One like the Innis & Gunn Canada Day 2012 beer.

Toast all-things-Canadian with a delish brew that comes in a special package with Canadian art.

At any rate, it’s yummy — malty and sweet, with hints of vanilla and toffee. It has a rich complexity suited for celebrating a diverse country’s birthday. And if you’re into carton artwork (I mean, who isn’t?), you’ll love the sugar maple saplings design by B.C.-based artist Gary Whitley.

Sure, you could toast July 1 with a made-in-Canada microbrew, but repeat after me: Barrrel. Aged. Beer. Mmmm…
