“Sample some of New Zealand's premier craft beers.”

Garage Project was started by Pete Gillespie & Jos Ruffell with help from Pete’s brother Ian. When we started out we were tiny. Garage Project wasn't even micro brewing... it was truly nano brewing. But what we lacked in size we more than made up for in agility and ability 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.

A few 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 several thousand, we’re still here to take some risks, to have a bit of fun and try something new. Just up from the brewery, over the road is our Taproom - 91 Aro. With 18 taps and 2 cask lines, others in cans and bottles and some special tucked away cellar brews, there's plenty to choose from.
