Grand Bay-Westfield Man A Finalist in Countrywide Beer Making Contest

Posted on Tuesday, November 14, 2017 11:44 AM

There are eight finalists in the running to come up with a new beer flavour for a Scottish brewery and one of them is from New Brunswick.

There were over a thousand submissions for the nationwide Innis & Gunn contest.

Don Guimond of Grand Bay-Westfield will need your help to win and have his creation brewed at Innis & Gunn in Edinburgh. He says the secret to coming up with a good beer is find something you like, keep your ingredients simple and keep the beer nice and clean when you're brewing it.

His creation is a dessert or after dinner beer that has coconut and rhubarb with a little bit of orange to give it a citrus flavour along with coffee and chocolate.

The winner of the contest gets to travel to the Innis & Gunn Brewery to brew their beer, which will have their name on it when it goes on sale in Canada next fall.

Voting is now open at and runs until November 24.
