A new level of refreshment, this is West Coast Ultra - Dry IPA. Big on hops, low on carbs - not that you need it, you’re looking bloody good! It’s an Ultra Dry West Coast hop bomb packed with Nelson Sauvin, Citra, Mosaic and El Dorado - all the hop flavour of an IPA, brewed longer for a crisper, cleaner, more refreshing finish. The perfect beer to enjoy with other bloody good looking people who don’t need to worry about carbs.
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!).
