Garage Project / Cigar City Out Of The Woods (375ml Bottle)
Out of the Woods, inspired by and infused with the New Zealand forest.
Ten different malts create a dark complex malt base, infused with totara rimu and manuka, fermented with a mixture of Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Brettanomyces in an open topped wooden fermenter, then barrel aged for over two years, before being given another infusion of Kawa Kawa.
The result balances tartness with rich malt notes and bursts with complex, earthy, herbal, woody character.
An utterly unique beer, brewed in collaboration with Cigar City’s inimitable Wayne Wambles.

The sour red/brown beers of Flanders can be considered as two different styles, or two ends of a single style continuum, depending on how you choose to view the issue. They are a clearly–defined sour ale subtype, one with strong historical traditions. Their character blends rich malt with tartness, and usually some fruity character as well. Oak aging is common in the traditional production of the style and therefore is often evident in the character. Many examples are also aged on fruit. At the red end of the style, the classic is Rodenbach at the brown end it is Liefmans, and there are several very good examples in between.
