Wellington-based brewery Garage Project has teamed up with meal kit company My Food Bag to add Garage Project’s Tiny non-alcoholic beer to upcoming recipes.
Released in time for Dry July, a weekly recipe in the My Choice bag has been designed to perfectly pair with Tiny, with the four-pack (only available in New Zealand) also for sale as an add on in their Kitchen offering.
The local partnership came to life after Garage Project’s Pete Gillespie, Co-Founder and Head Brewer, spent time in My Food Bag’s development kitchen with Development Kitchen Manager, Ella Krauts to create five different spice blends that bring out the flavour of the non-alcoholic beer.
Using the bespoke spice blends, these dishes include Fried Chicken Bao with Zesty Lemon Chilli Pickles, Indian Battered Fish with Gunpowder Potatoes and Chilli Greens, and Wok Fried Prawn Mee Goreng Sprinkled with Pineapple & Peanut Blend – with each meal kit supported by a recipe card with the unique tasting notes for foodies to gain access to the full pairing experience at home.
Pete says their Tiny non-alcoholic beer, released late last year, has continued to grow in popularity as more Kiwis are opting for non-alcohol options while still enjoying the taste they’ve come to expect from their regular alcohol counterparts.
“Tiny is specifically fermented to provide all the big, juicy hop character of a regular Hazy IPA – just without the alcohol,” says Gillespie.
“Partnering with My Food Bag, we are able to provide Kiwis all the big flavour, without the booze, so they can enjoy the pub experience with gourmet delights in the comfort of their own home.”
