Hashigo Zake Cult Beer Bar’s programme of weekly new releases evolved out of Garage Project’s ambitious and wonderful 24/24 project. Indeed, this series of haiku started as a response to the latter and has continued as a means of (patchily) documenting the latter. And so but – to quote the late David Foster Wallace – it’s always a kind of homecoming when a new Garage Project experiment turns up at 5 o’clock on a Tuesday afternoon.
Garage Project Hop Trial #1 Single Hop IPA (7.0% ABV)
Sticky golden brew,
All hail the mystery hop
* Pacific Beer Expo (happening at Labour Weekend)
Food match: bacon wrapped shrimp with Sriracha, vegetable tempura
It’s the kind of beer you drink when: You’re contributing to science!
