Garage Project Closes Doors for Dry July
Garage Project have been pushing the boundaries of beer making since they popped up almost 6 years ago and today they announced their riskiest endeavor yet. For the entire month of July they will cease all production and sales of beer, June 30th being their last day of trade until the 1st of August.
Speaking from their Aro Valley brewery, co-owner Pete Gillespie can’t wait to pull his waders on. “I’ve just bought a new rod and I’m really keen to catch a trout” said Gillespie. The other man behind this idea, co-founder Jos Ruffell announced the brewing sabbatical today saying, “There should be enough of our beer out there by now, so I’m not concerned about closing down for a month, I might make some brett kombucha instead"
Wellington's New World Thorndon expected a big rush on stocks today and like most off licenses have agreed to pull all Garage Project Stock from their shelves at 11pm tonight. Bars across the country have will also have to stop pouring the beer from midnight. Malthouse owner Colin Mallon conceding it was for the best, “I hope Pete enjoys himself, I’ll look forward to seeing some photos of his fishing trip”
Ruffell did indicate that after dry July, “Moregust” will make up for anyone has felt let down by Garage Project’s Jospital pass.
