What the f**k did not see that one coming. 2020, what a **** show. After a f***ing awful year like that you deserve something a bit special. F**k You 2020, a lovely lazy hazy blend of light malt and wheat, treated to a triple dose of aromatic hop extract, cryo hops, and hand-selected Simcoe, Strata and Sabro. The perfect hazy way to see out the year that was.
Based in Wellington, NZ, The Garage Project is Pete Gillespie, Jos Ruffell, and Ian Gillespie. When they started out, they were tiny. Garage Project wasn’t even micro brewing; it was a truly nano-brewery. When brewing on such a small scale, one can afford to take risks. That suited the guys from Garage Project, always on a quest to try something new. Three years have passed and they’ve grown, but that same ethos still shapes how they do things at the Garage. Whether they’re brewing 50 liters or 2000, they’re still there to take some risks, to have a bit of fun, and to try something new.
