Garage Project La Calavera Catrina
Country: New Zealand
Brewery: Garage Project
Style: Blonde Lager
Format: 650ml Bottle
La Catrina is as blonde as Day of the Dead is dark, but she's no lightweight. The base beer is a blonde lager with a cheeky, even ironic addition of maize. Maize is an ingredient you'd normally associate with much blander lager offerings, but here it is fired up with a generous addition of organic Habanero chillis, giving Calevera a far more assertive chilli heat than the smoky chipotle of her brother. To this blonde chilli base went an addition of rose water and watermelon. The result is a complex and surprising beer we think can stand proudly beside the Day of the Dead. Cheeky, ironic, complex and firey – what more could you want in the Lady of Death? We hope you'll give her a warm welcome.
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
They are few and far between, good tasting chilli beer's and this is one of the best.
