Created by Malcolm & Meron Blakey in 2015, Cargo Brewery and Kitchen was born from a love of great beer, fantastic food and fun times with friends.  Our experience of working with events throughout Queenstown has left us with a passion to create new and exciting experiences for our clients.

↠ Our Story

We moved to Queenstown in 2002 and for the last ten years have been owner/operators of QT Event Management, Queenstown’s innovators of creative and inspirational events.  

Malcolm discovered brewing in 2014 and after many, many months managed to persuade Meron to be part of turning a 1971 Bedford TK into a mobile brewing and food truck. Meron, who happens to be a chef by trade, took on the challenge on the condition the food would be innovative, fresh and healthy.

And so Cargo Brewery & Kitchen was born.

↠ Our Philosophy

We believe in fresh, locally sourced ingredients for both our Brewery and Kitchen.  We believe that events are unique and so should be the food on offer.  We push ourselves by creating new recipes which will inspire and excite.
