The Garage Project is a brewery craftily combining hops, yeast and water with a hefty dollop of marketing nous – last year alone they produced 36 new beers.

The brewery was started in 2011 in a former garage in the Aro Valley by Jos Ruffell (right) and Pete Gillespie (left), with a set-up that turned out 50 litres at a time. “It was comically small,” say Pete. “But we’ve grown – there’s now 30 people on the team and we’re constantly developing and releasing new ideas.”

Back home, the premises underwent a major expansion last year with new tanks each holding around 240 times the capacity of the original fermenters. “And we still can’t fill them fast enough,” Pete says. “We have just created a second ‘Wild Workshop’ site in Marion St, to keep creating new and exciting beers.”
