Nøgne Ø – Garage Project Collaboration

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2011

Garage Project have been impressing and confounding Wellington beer drinkers nearly every Tuesday at Hashigo Zake since they launched their first beers on August 2nd. Yesterday they brewed a beer to continue this trend in collaboration with Norway’s first microbrewery, Nøgne Ø. Founder and head brewer Kjetil Jikiun was in Aro Valley with Pete and Jos to brew a New Zealand Christmas Rye Blond with Pohutukawa honey.

Here are my favourite photos from the day.
