Don’t it always seem to go, that you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone. Marion Street, inner city saison, a style of beer from a simpler time, lovingly recreated for the new urban world. Fermented with mixed cultures, aged in oak barrels and blended with a portion of aged sour stock, it’s an easy drinking farmhouse style ale with a subtle tart twist. A traditional brew that’s as refreshing now as it ever 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 litres or 2000, they’re still there to take some risks, to have a bit of fun and to try something new.
