BLENDED FOEDER AGED SOUR WITH OTAGO PEACHES 6.4%
A true celebration of the seasons. At its heart, one of our first mixed ferment sours, aged for over a year in a large oak foeder, then rested on the finest sun ripened Otago peaches harvested at the very tail end of summer. Aged again over the autumn and winter months before being infused with an addition of bright golden marigolds, packaged and conditioned in bottle. The result of this patient process is a lush, radiantly golden beer, both sour and sweet, bursting with sunny aromatic peach and floral notes. Enjoy now or in seasons to come.

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!).
