Beer ABV IBU Style Tasting note
Chocolate Beer - Garage Project x Whittaker's 4.7% Creamy Milk Chocolate Beer One whole block of chocolate worth of Whittaker’s cacao nibs infused into every can. Unbelievably rich, dark and creamy, brewed with chocolate malts, lactose and infused with vanilla and freshly batch roasted cocoa beans. Tiny bubbles of nitrogen make it smoother and even more delicious. If it was any more chocolatey we’d have to put it in a wrapper.
Garage Project - Red Rocks Reserve 6.5% Stein Beer Only to be enjoyed once a year, the cranberry biscuits of Red Rocks is a beautiful experience. A medium to full bodied amber ale that has a jam-like quality surrounding complex malts and the big boost from a large late addition of Nelson Sauvin. Get involved.
Hatsukoi - Garage Project 5% Neo Tokyo Lager Hatsukoi, meaning first love, is a Japanese inspired pilsner. Brewed with light malted barley and rice using the traditional first press method. Clean, crisp with a delicate noble hop character.
Golden Spiral - Garage Project 8% Fibonacci Hopped IPA The golden spiral, the mathematics of nature, the very code of life’s geometry itself, revealed in the sequence of Fibonacci numbers. Golden Spiral, a unique experiment using Fibonacci numbers to determine the volume and timing of hop additions. Undoubtedly the most complex and audaciously hopped recipe we’ve ever attempted, with thirteen different hop varieties utilised in 21 different hop additions creating a complexity rivalled only in the wonders of nature itself.
Texas Tea - Garage Project 6.2% Cactus Brown Ale A spicy and bold Texas brown ale brewed with a heady dose of American hops, habanero chili and prickly pear. Say hello to the medium to full bodied collaboration between fruity and spicy. Green pomme fruit, presented by prickly pear is followed by the slow, building and progressive warmth of habanero chilli.
West Coast Ultra - Garage Project 7% Ultra Dry IPA A new level of refreshment, this is West Coast Ultra - Dry IPA. Big on hops, low on carbs - not that you need it, you’re looking bloody good! It’s an Ultra Dry West Coast hop bomb packed with Nelson Sauvin, Citra, Mosaic and El Dorado - all the hop flavour of an IPA, brewed longer for a crisper, cleaner, more refreshing finish. The perfect beer to enjoy with other bloody good looking people who don’t need to worry about carbs.
Framingham Nobody's Hero Pinot Noir 13% Wine Matured in French oak barriques and seduced by the steady thrum of the bassline, our Pinot Noir delivers a lush, rounded palate with vibrant red fruit vibes, and a lick of gentle oak and dark chocolate.
Framingham Nobody's Hero Pinot Gris 13.5% Wine An instant hit, our Pinot Gris kicks off with ripe and rich stone fruit notes, layers of baked apple, and juicy quince harmonies. The outro leaves you with a bold mouth-filling texture and a crowd-pleasing mineral finish.
Framingham Nobody's Hero Sauvignon Blanc 12.5% Wine A compilation that turns the flavour dial up to 11, this Sauvignon Blanc opens with a mix of driving lemon, current, and fresh herb rhythms. These upbeat flavours harmonise effortlessly with the base notes of mineral imparted by our stony riverbed soils.
