An ale with extravagant depths, an ale reluctant to give up it’s secrets, an ale of hidden pleasures, this is Inntrigue. Delve into the abyss and you will be rewarded with hints of succulent winter berries and a concealed whisper of dark chocolate and freshly baked bread. This is an ale woven around subtlety, laced with a web of rare flavours: an ale of mysterious shadows waiting to be explored.
