"Inspired by the Japanese 'first press' method this is a delicate, refined beer that needed an equally delicate and refined piece of art. This was Kumiko Matsumoto's first time producing beer art for us, but definitely not her last. It's a lovely piece, so different from anything else we've produced. It has an elegance and restraint that's perfect for this beer. A collaborative effort between Kumiko and Tim Gibson. The initial release of the beer was just tap only for our 'Tokyo Taphouse' event during Wellington on a Plate, so the challenge was to develop tap badge concept and bring it into a printed can. As is the case with a lot of Tim's work, we were presented with a number of concepts that we could have easily chosen. Spoilt for choice, we went for the simple approach that celebrated the simplicity of the beer and Kumi's beautiful koi art.This was brewed for Tokyo Tap House. It was a WOAP event hosted in 91 Aro over four nights. We flew in VICE-famous Japanese chef Yoya Takahashi to cook the food, it was ace. Yoya is a loose unit." - Garage Project

About the Maker

Hailing from across the ditch, Garage Project is New Zealand's hottest export since Lord of the Rings. Started by Pete & Ian Gillespie, and Jos Ruffell in a small garage (hence the name) in little Aro Street in Wellington, they've been experimenting, taking risks, and having fun along the way since 2011. Fast forward to now and we're lucky enough to be getting their absolutely top notch beers over here in Aus, and always get a wee bit excited whenever a new drop comes in from them. Dive in and check out the goods!

Buy in-store, Click & Collect & Delivery

IN-STORE: if you live in Brisbane drop into one of our two awesome shops. You’ll find My Beer Dealer Caxton Street under our mothership Brewski – it’s one of the few drink-in bottle shops in Brisbane complete with 10 taps for growler and can fills. And My Beer Dealer Eagle Junction is in Clayfield in Brisbane’s north (right next to Eagle Junction train station) with a killer range of beers, wines and spirits.

ONLINE: Choose from our free Click & Collect service from either shop or we’ll package your order up and deliver it pretty much anywhere in Australia for $10 (for up to 20kg). If you’re in a major city your parcel will travel with Aus Post Wine Service.


Rest assured that when you order with us we'll turn any frown upside down in no time with full replacement, credit or refund.

Meet the Dealers

We’re Antoinette, Natasha, Matt and Simon. We’re good booze lovers just like you. We started our beery journey in 2013 when we opened the famous Brewski on Brisbane’s infamous Caxton Street. In 2018 we opened our first My Beer Dealer under Brewski, it’s one of the few drink-in bottle shops in Queensland and we’re super chuffed with it. 2020 was a big year for us, we launched our online store (you’re looking at it) and opened our second bricks ‘n mortar shop next to Eagle Junction station in Brisbane’s Clayfield (we’re super chuffed with it as well). Both of these have allowed us to complement our awesome beer range with our other passions of good wine and good spirits.

As we’re a small family run business we prefer to support other family businesses and small producers, ensuring that when you visit us it’s not the same old, same old. And by shopping with us we hope you get to feel good about supporting a whole heap of small businesses, just like we do. So if you do choose to buy through us, thank you from us and thank you from our family of suppliers (and thanks for reading this far, our copywriter is stoked).
