Join Us On Our Journey To The Best Beer Garden In New Zealand
Project 2018-04-17 16:07:06 +1200
Queenstown's Cargo Brewery recently set up home at Waitiri Creek, Gibbston Valley and are transforming an old church, a few shipping containers and several acres of grass into New Zealand's most unique brewery and beer garden. Our mission is to create a space which offers something for everyone. We are looking for your help in completing the beer garden in time for this summer and we have a range of Cargo and Waitiri branded merchandise and gift experiences to offer as rewards.
Work has already started on our beach volleyball court and the funds raised from this project will go towards work on the cricket pitch and installing a kids adventure park, frisbee golf course and outdoor table tennis.
The church was built in 1894 and is now home to our tasting room and restaurant.
A micro brewery is being installed into the shipping containers and visitors will be able to watch the brewery process and taste the beers fresh from the tanks. A range of special release beers created in the brewery will be available for people to taste at the cellar door and take away with them. We also plan to offer the opportunity for groups of people to brew their own beer on-site. A hop yard is being developed next to the brewery.
The venue is perfect for open air concerts. The Black Seeds played during the first of our concerts and this summer we have Carl Cox, Dave Dobbyn, Fly My Pretties and Fat Boy Slim performing
The next step is to develop the beer garden and really put the place on the map! We would like to create a space with several different unique eating/seating areas with plenty of things on offer for people to do. We plan to bring the cricket pitch up to a good standard so that local adult and kids teams can play. Other plans are to add a Frisbee Golf Course, Beach Volleyball Court, Kids Adventure Park and Outdoor Table Tennis.
Our range of beers including our flagship beer, Waitiri Lager, have won various awards for branding and packaging
Our mission is to create a space which offers something for everyone. We are looking for your help in completing the beer garden in time for this summer and we have a range of Cargo and Waitiri branded merchandise and gift experiences available as rewards.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to welcoming you to the best Beer Garden in New Zealand soon!
