Garage Project is an independent New Zealand brewery based in Aro Valley, Wellington. The brewery was founded in 2011 by brothers Ian and Pete Gillespie and Jos Ruffell, who transformed a dilapidated car garage to begin brewing 50 litres at a time- 24 new beers in 24 weeks.
They have won numerous awards- In the 2018 GABS Hottest 100 Kiwi Craft Beers poll, Garage Project claimed 19 spots. They were named NZ Brewery of the Year in 2017.
NB: Oak Barrel's froth enthusiast and ferment nerd Mads Park-Neilson is holding a virtual sour beer tasting on 30th September.
Surrender to the Void, an irregular series of outrageously decadent pitch black stouts brewed using an enormous, complex malt bill and mounds of debaucherous adjuncts.
In this edition The Void gobbles down all the Vanilla Boysenberry Cheesecake and then goes back for second helpings.
Does the void care that there’s a global vanilla shortage?
Apparently not. Turn off your mind, relax and float down stream.
Brewed using a hop free boil, cryo hops in the whirlpool and massive double dry hop of Mosaic, Citra and Nelson Sauvin hops.
Bringing home the goodness.
ThIS beer captures the essence of seasonal freshness, bursting with salty sour citrus, and delicate chilli heat. Oishi!
Super sour fresh yuzu zest and freshly squeezed juice collide head on with Nelson Sauvin and Rakau in a giant-foamy-super-golden-fruity-citrus-hop-bomb-explosion! It shouldn't taste this good, but it does.
riple hopped with, Pacifica, Motueka and Riwaka hops in increasingly lavish quantities throughout the boil, Trip Hop’s bitter but (we hope) balanced on a malt base of pale, Carahelles, Vienna and Caraaroma. Rich amber red and redolent of the Nelson hop fields. Think easy drinking for resin heads and pucker up.
