About Cargo Brewery at Waitiri Creek
Home to the best brewed beers in Queenstown, with an inspired chef behind their ever-changing menu, this kitchen and bar offers a unique tasting experience.
Founded in 2015 by Malcolm and Meron Blakey, Cargo Brewery & Kitchen serve up a selection of tasty craft beers, from aromatic gold lager, citrus-laden pale ale and creamy porter, to their hand-crafted IPA and smooth pilsner.
Whilst Malcolm crafted his perfect pint, Meron (a chef by trade) took on the challenge of creating a fresh and innovative menu. With the wealth of Otago’s produce at her fingertips, Meron showcases the best local ingredients from artisan farmers and growers. Her menu changes with the seasons, offering dishes packed with flavour and of uncompromising quality.
Located within the stunning Waitiri Creek vineyard, inside a historic church built in the gold mining era, Cargo is proud to also serve the neighbouring Waitiri Creek wines. Enjoy a unique tasting experience at Cargo Brewery & Kitchen with their micro-brewery opening Summer 2018.
We love it here and come back every time we’re in Queenstown. This was the first time we ate here - it was over the busy New Years period and we’d made a booking several weeks in advance. Unfortunately we waited over an hour for our platters (which we were advised about upon ordering) but this seems a huge amount of time to wait for antipasto fare. The gorgeous resident Labrador was loved by us all except for our young daughter who has a dog phobia - so perhaps something to keep in mind - not all patrons will be comfortable with a dog roaming the tables, even though she was clearly docile and good natured. Am sure we’ll be back though.
Great for a Sunday afternoon with friends to enjoy some wine/beer and cheese platter
Beautiful scenery, great atmosphere, delicious food, excellent service. Highly recommended.
Set up and games are awesome
Really nice dinner! The fondue was full on and was so much food! Great for large groups! Service was perfect and really freindly. Take a jersey under your coat... was a bit cooler than a busy kitchen in cbd of Qtwn.
Absolutely delicious food and beer! Perfect setting! Gorgeous place!
We LOVED LOVED LOVED our visit to Cargo Brewery today. Weather was in our favour so the kids ran and ran and ran in the amazing outdoors. and played with the many games and toys available. Even if it had rained, they have numerous games inside too. Food was perfect as was the service. Even the new guy after his 3rd day was awesome! Will definitely be back!
Awesome place! Can’t believe I’ve not been before. Great for kids!
Great food, awesome service and overall just a great vibe to go for lunch! Thanks again team
As always. It was amazing. Great choice for a sunny day and being served by smiling people is all we need to have a great day!
