Product Description

WHAT IS IT?

 

Annual release. A base red ale is brewed and then with a nod to an ancient brewing technique known as 'Stein Bier', the beer is passed through a giant hop back containing rocks, super heated in a hard Manuka wood fire to over 500c. Finally, the beer is given an additional pass through a hop back stuffed full of whole cone Nelson Sauvin. The end result i a nice balance of malt sweetness and bitterness, with some assertive hop aroma and flavour.

 

TASTING NOTES

Only to be enjoyed once a year, the cranberry biscuits of Red Rocks is a beautiful experience. A medium to full bodied amber ale that has a jam-like quality surrounding complex malts and the big boost from a large late addition of Nelson Sauvin. Get involved.

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!).
