Garage Project Cockswain's Courage Double Barreled Edition 650mL ABV 12.8%


Product Description



Fancy yourself as a bit of a brewer? Then enlist today in His Majesty’s Colonial Brewing Corp. It’s damned thirsty work for the smashing chaps of the Earth’s Armed Forces. Spending your days up to your danglies in mud and razor wire, bringing a bit of civilizing influence to those ugly 

Venusian brutes can leave a chap parched. That’s where the Brewing Corp comes in. How’s your average tommy meant to go over the top if he hasn’t had a bloody good pint or two of warm bitter to get his ardor up! It’s brewing at the pointy end. 

Slogging up and down the mounts of Venus really takes it out of a chap. After a long day at it, his Lordship needs a special something to steady the legs.

Drawn straight from his Lordships' own private reserve, this special batch of Cockswain's Porter has been brewed extra strong and aged in freshly emptied oak bourbon barrels for 18 months. The result is a powerful mahogany dark porter, redolent of bourbon, vanilla and raisins. Definitely not a tipple for the faint of heart, but then Lord Cockswain never could stand those 'soft types'. Enjoy Courage straight from the barrel - just the way Lord Cockswain likes it.

Bottled December 2017

Enjoy now or for several years to come




Brewed in Wellington, New Zealand

The Garage Project is Pete Gillespie, Jos Ruffell, and Ian Gillespie.

When we started out we were tiny. Garage Project wasn't even micro brewing… it was a truly nano brewery.

After nine years of working in breweries with equipment 100 times bigger it was quite a change to downsize to a fifty litre brew kit. But what we lacked in size we more than made up for in agility and the ability to experiment.

When you’re brewing on such a small scale you can afford to take risks. That suited us. We wanted to try something new.

Five years have passed and we’ve grown, but that same ethos still shapes how we do things at the Garage. Whether we’re brewing 50 litres or 2000, we’re still here to take some risks, to have a bit of fun and to try something new.

Way back in the day, when we were just starting out, we wrote a little blurb about each other to shed some light on who we are, and what lead us down the path of starting a brewery in Wellington, (if you’ve ever written your own bio, you’ll know how hard it can be!).
