Blurring the lines between IPA and marmalade. Add smoked fish, and I'm there.

I'm a tremendous fan of marmalade, and while I tend not to shill for consumer products other than beer, I'll make an exception of Mackays Three Fruit Marmalade, with orange, grapefruit and lemon.

Louisville's Lotsa Pasta carries Mackays, which is delicious.

At least two days a week, here is a curmudgeon's breakfast: Pumpernickel bread, butter, pickled herring, marmalade and espresso.

When I saw the link to "spreadable beer," my first thought was that BrewDog was up to something crazy  again. However, upon closer examination, this combination makes sense in both directions, whether IPA-influenced marmalade or marmalade-flavored IPA.

Fruitiness and bitterness. Duh!

Scottish craft brewer launches 'world's first spreadable beer', by Jill Castle (Herald Scotland)

A Scottish craft brewer has created the world's first spreadable beer to mark the opening of its new Beer Kitchen.

Innis & Gunn opened its second Scottish Beer Kitchen in South Tay Street, Dundee today.

The celebrate the launch, the craft brewer has launched Marm & Ale, the world's first beer marmalade.

The marmalade combines Innes & Gunn's oak-aged IPA with Dundee's finest preserve.

The brewer has also unveiled a new marmalade flavoured IPA.
