In a series of Q & As, we're asking some of our favourite brewers to tell us what they're sipping this summer. This week, Garage Project's head brewer Pete Gillespie reveals his favourite hot-weather brews
What are you most looking forward to about summer?
Sunshine – just a little bit. You start early as a brewer and the day can be long. Those late evenings feel like a gift.
What style/styles do you see yourself drinking a lot of this summer?
Stout, served cold. Everyone always says stout’s a winter drink. Bollocks. There’s a good reason Sri Lanka, Jamaica, Africa and Australia make great stouts.
It’s the hottest day of the year and you’ve just mown the lawns. What beer would you most hope to find in your fridge?
A cold Cooper’s Stout wouldn’t go astray. If it’s a Garage Project (you have to occasionally carry out organoleptic sampling), then maybe a Party & Bullshit. It’s ugly but it’s nice.
