Two new chocolate brews from Whittaker’s and Garage Project

Garage Project and Whittaker’s have teamed up once again to release two new chocolate brews.

Following months perfecting each recipe, the first release is a creamy white chocolate milk stout brewed with New Zealand lactose, barley and oats and infused with Whittaker’s cocoa beans, vanilla, golden raspberry and Gisborne lemon.

And the second is a bitter dark chocolate stout brewed with Canterbury malts, oats and roasted barley, infused with Whittaker’s roasted Ghanaian cocoa beans, then finished with a hint of espresso coffee, hazelnut and seville orange.

“Like us, Garage Project loves to push the boundaries of our craft while maintaining our dedication to quality,” said Whittaker’s Co-Chief Operating Officer, Holly Whittaker.

“It has been fantastic working together to explore the possibilities in pairing chocolate with beer.”

“We have a shared passion for quality, innovation and artisan craftsmanship, and these delicious new chocolate beers are a testament to that passion with some flavour notes that make these extra-special.”

Garage Project co-founder Jos Ruffell said chocolate beer lovers should get in quick as the 2018 edition sold-out in record time.

“We’re excited to see the response to our white and dark chocolate beers, and think beer and chocolate lovers alike are in for a treat,” he said.

The chocolate brews are available now in all New World supermarkets, selected Countdown stores and at
