Sir John A. Macdonald’s homeland has a gift to Canadians for it's 150th birthday. Macdonald was born in Glasgow, Scotland. Innis & Gunn has released a limited edition 150 Maple & Thistle Rye Ale as a celebration of Macdonald. Maple & Thistle is a red ale, matured in 150 oak barrels for 150 days, according to its packaging. Brewers then added a hint of Canadian maple syrup and Scottish wild thistle. This is one to share and savour with someone who appreciates great craft beer.
