TASTING NOTES

Venusian brutes can leave a chap parched. That’s where the Brewing Corp comes in. How’s your average Tommy meant to go over the top if he hasn’t had a bloody good pint or two of warm bitter to get his ardor up? It’s brewing at the pointy end. Drawn straight from his Lordships’ own private reserve, this special batch of Cockswain’s Porter has been brewed extra strong and aged in freshly emptied oak bourbon barrels for 18 months. The result is a powerful mahogany dark porter, redolent of bourbon, vanilla and raisins. Definitely not a tipple for the faint of heart, but then Lord Cockswain could never stand those ‘soft types’. Enjoy Courage straight from the barrel, just the way Lord Cockswain likes it.

BREWERY SNAPSHOT

Based in Wellington, NZ, The Garage Project is Pete Gillespie, Jos Ruffell, and Ian Gillespie. When they started out, they were tiny. Garage Project wasn’t even micro brewing; it was a truly nano brewery. When brewing on such a small scale, one can afford to take risks. That suited the guys from Garage Project, always on a quest to try something new. Three years have passed and they’ve grown, but that same ethos still shapes how they do things at the Garage. Whether they’re brewing 50 litres or 2000, they’re still there to take some risks, to have a bit of fun and to try something new.

DID YOU KNOW?

Brewer Pete Gillespie had worked for a decade in English breweries including Brakespear and Hepworth. He moved from Australia to Wellington before launching Garage Project with his brother Ian and a former video game designer, Jos Ruffell.
