West Coast IPA, but not as you know it. Swap your longboard for a longship, this is a classic west coast IPA fermented with a voracious kveik yeast isolated from an old Norwegian mixed strain. This fast and furious fermenter leaves a remarkably clean, bright beer bursting with centennial, citra, cascade and chinook hops. To fully enjoy its aromatic onslaught this beer is best drunk from the polished half skull of your enemy. Skål!
Based in Wellington, NZ, The Garage Project is Pete Gillespie, Jos Ruffell, and Ian Gillespie. When they started out we were tiny. Garage Project wasn’t even micro brewing… it was a truly nano brewery. When you’re brewing on such a small scale you 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 here to take some risks, to have a bit of fun and to try something new.
