Talk to the Hand: NZSL Beer Week Launch

To celebrate New Zealand Sign Language Week 2019, Wellington's Garage Project has released a new beer in partnership with Deaf Aotearoa and Colab Hospitality Group. Talk to the Hand, a super bright and hoppy IPA, was inspired by the brewery's own Ryan Cassidy who uses sign language while working on the packaging team. The labels for the release were also hand-drawn by Cassidy with letters from the NZSL alphabet. Talk to the Hand comes in three limited edition labels, each one spelling out something different.

In line with New Zealand Sign Language Week, Garage Project is marking the beer release with a series of parties across the country. In Wellington, beer lovers can try the hoppy IPA and learn new sign language skills at Aro Valley's Garage Project Taproom and Malthouse. On Sunday, May 12 representatives from Deaf Aotearoa will be on-site running 15-minute sign language crash courses at 2pm, 3pm and 4pm — and if you order your beer in sign, the bar will shout you something nice.
