Boundary-pushing Wellington brewery Garage Project has a new outpost to pour its natural wines and spontaneous experimental brews.

Previously not open to the public, the company's central Te Aro brewery on Furness Lane is now home to the Wild Workshop Cellar Door, giving visitors the opportunity to soak up the sights and smells of a working brewery and enjoy tasting flights and bottle pours in the place that they were made.

The new cellar door features a stunning new outside mural by Cracked Ink in cahoots with Wellington City Council's Art on Walls initiative, while the interior bar was built by long-time GP collaborator Tomahawk.

The Wild Workshop is Garage Project's playground for creating all things weird and wonderful, from barrel-aged sours to spontaneous ferments, beer-wine hybrids and tanks brimming with fruit. The cellar door offers cans, flagons and bottles to takeaway, and serves tasting flights of all that Wild Workshop produces, including wild-fermented beer and natural wine from GP Crushed.

The tasting flights are set to change every week, across a selection of six taps and bottle pours. The current tap list includes a fermented dark ale, a raspberry-infused blended sour and a white wine with notes of fairy bread. If you're feeling peckish there's a small toastie menu to accompany.

Find Garage Project's Wild Workshop Cellar Door at Furness Lane (off Marion Street), Te Aro. It's open every Friday and Saturday from 4–8pm. For more information, visit garageproject.co.nz.
