BEER HAIKU #20 – An Old English Bitter Marmalade by Garage Project

The first of Garage Project’s 24 more was released on Tuesday night at Hashigo zake – cult beer bar. The brewers describe it as “.. .Old English Bitter Marmalade, a proper English session Bitter with a marmalade twist coming in at a modest 3.8% abv, dry hopped and conditioned in the Firkin and served straight from the cask…”And yes, the cask was there sitting on top of the bar Tuesday night! The marmalade had some of us imagining a beer breakfast in the afternoon, and we could have scoffed it down all night. Greasylightbulb was in session beer heaven.

I haven’t heard if the Garage Project’s new releases will come out every Tuesday for the rest of the year, but we are hoping to haiku all 24 of them here eventually…at poetry club.
