Award winning Cargo Brewery has signed on as GODZone’s exclusive beer sponsor and we could not be more stoked.

Queenstown’s only boutique brewery with its own hop farm has been operating for 4 years, since the owners Malcom and Meron Blakely discovered the joys of brewing .They have opened their own interactive brewing, outdoor garden and cellar door at Waitiri Creek in the Gibbston Valley and recently reinvigorated the historic Gantleys pub, in Arthurs Point, to a Cargo Taproom and Beer garden.

The Cargo beer selection is made up of ten unique brews, and some of the Cargo Classics include an easy drinking Lager, a smooth and hoppy Pilsner, a full bodied IPA and a silky smooth Porter. All these beers are available online to purchase at https://www.cargobrewery.co.nz

Cargo Brewery’s Malcolm Blakey says Cargo are excited to be part of the GODZone family.

“We love adventure and GODZone teams are an amazing bunch of people who really do the hard yards and get out into the greater outdoors. Rewarding them with Cargo beer at the end of their incredible journey is something we can’t wait to do.”

Rest assured you will be enjoying a fresh, cold Cargo brew at the GODZone finish line before you know it!
