Garage Project and Jameson Irish Whiskey are making the road to Beervana just that little bit easier with a celebration of their new partnership at Southern Cross Garden Bar Restaurant. The boilermaker, an age old pairing, has been revamped to show what a great pair these two make.  Come and be some of the first in the land to try Jameson Caskmates and pull up a chair next to its…
