NEW STUFF - Garage Project - NZ

16/03/2016

   Citizens,

 No explanation nesessary for the guys from the Project. We have some  new , some classics but now in cans and then the return of some othee  great drinking brews.

   NEW ON THE SHELF :

 

 

 

Garage Project Cabbages & Kings Imperial Stout 12%
"O Oysters, come and walk with us!" The Walrus did beseech. Cabbages & Kings, Imperial Oyster Stout, brewed with the more or less willing assistance of ten dozen fresh Te Matua Bay Pacific oysters, Horopito and Manuka smoked malt. Dark, certainly - and rich with just a suggestion of brine, a touch of smoke and a hint of native New Zealand pepper leaf. "A pleasant walk, a pleasant talk, Along the briny beach.’  Rb   = 97

 

 

 

Garage Project Wiggly Stick IPA 6.4% 440ml Can
Watch your step in the long grass, things are not always as they seem. Wiggly Stick, brewed to showcase new Australian trial hop hopeful HPA-035, dangerously drinkable with a distinctive mandarin, tangerine tang and bitter citrus peel bite. Not dangerous unless provoked.

 

Garage Project Pernicious Weed  8% 330ml Can
The arrival of hops to the brewing scene in England in the 1500’s led to a moral panic. Hops were condemned as a “wicked and pernicious weed”, one which would lead to the erosion of social and moral standards. Thank goodness they were right. Here’s hoping that our homage to the original pernicious weed continues this gradual decline. Organic Rakau and whole cone Nelson Sauvin go head to head in this strong, golden, hoppy brew. Bitter, yes. Intensely hoppy, absolutely. Too much, never.  Rb  = 98 

 

 

Garage Project La Calavera Catrina 6.9% Blonde Lager 650ml
La Catrina is as blonde as Day of the Dead is dark, but she’s no lightweight. The base beer is a blonde lager with a cheeky, even ironic addition of maize. Maize is an ingredient you’d normally associate with much blander lager offerings, but here it is fired up with a generous addition of organic Habanero chillis, giving Calevera a far more assertive chilli heat than the smoky chipotle of her brother. To this blonde chilli base went an addition of rose water and watermelon. The result is a complex and surprising beer we think can stand proudly beside the Day of the Dead. Cheeky, ironic, complex and firey – what more could you want in the Lady of Death? We hope you’ll give her a warm welcome.

Garage Project Garagista IPA 5.8% 330ml Can
Embrace the Garagista spirit - ignore convention, experiment, test the limits, and look at things a little differently. Brewed and double dry hopped with New Zealand, Australian and US hops, resulting in tropical, resin and pine flavours. Great things can come from the garage.  Rb  =  97

Drink well
