The World of Wearable Art, born in Nelson, but delivered in Wellington. A creative arts show where artists imaginations go wild and push the boundaries of what they can wear. However, WoW is not the only wow in Welly… Garage Project, craft beer producers extraordinaire, have been creating weird but wonderful beers in our capial city since 2011. GP are the most innovative craft beer brewers we know. They have the ability to consistently make beers with weird ingredients like lemongrass and ants (yes, ants!) taste fantastic. In six short years of brewing these prolific brewers have pumped out over 140 different brews, each with their own uniqueness. Bold in flavour and with delightfully weird graphics on the can!
Underpinning GP’s inventive success is their core range of go-to beers!
Hapi Daze 4.6% Pale Ale – Has the aroma of NZ: earthy, woody forest. This is an all-occasion, down to earth brew with a solid amount of hops that doesn’t overpower the toffee malts. An emphatically flavoured sessionableale.
Garagista 5.8% IPA – With a the first psst of the can you know you’re in for a hopmungus treat. Huge hop aroma and straight out hop flavours of tropical fruits, passionfruit and pine flavours. No malts here folks, just pure hopulence.
Pils n Thrills 5.5% Pilsner – Grainy malts up front, a soft tropical middle then a citrus bite which leaves a lingering crisp, clean bitterness at the end. A fitting theme for the Wellington Spills n Thrills Roller Derby Bonanza hosted by Garage Project and Richter City Roller Derby last weekend.
And now for something completely different…
Cereal Milk Stout – A new spin on and old favourite only this time with a Nitro Pour. Shake the can then immediately dump it upside down in a glass and wait for the nitro to work its magic… Then, WOW, the smoothest, creamiest breakfast you’ll ever have! Hopefully this new brew will arrive on the Fresh Choice shelves real soon!
