Beer is a Conversation: Jos Ruffell

In this episode of Beer is a Conversation, James chats with Jos Ruffell, co-founder of New Zealand brewery Garage Project.

When the chat was recorded, Jos was right about to rush out the door to catch a flight to Auckland, where Garage Project was set to open its new cellar door.

Other topics of conversation included Garage Project’s diversification into winemaking, its public announcement of a move to contract brew its beers at a new facility in Napier, and the exciting growth of the Wellington beer scene generally.
