Real Jour­neys brew­ery bid


Real Jour­neys plans to add a brew­ery to an ex­ist­ing cafe and De­part­ment of Con­ser­va­tion (DOC) of­fice in Queen­stown.

The tourism com­pany wants to brew its own beer for a new bar and a restau­rant by Sho­tover Jet sta­tion.

A re­source con­sent ap­pli­ca­tion was lodged with the Queen­stown Lakes Dis­trict Coun­cil in June for a fa­cil­ity on Arthurs Point Rd.

En­hance­ments to the out­side of the build­ing would be made, but there would be no phys­i­cal changes to the ex­ist­ing DOC of­fice or Cavell’s cafe, op­er­ated by Queen­stown Raft­ing, the com­pany said in its con­sent ap­pli­ca­tion.

The planned brew­house ex­ten­sion would be about 5.4 me­tres by 6.7m and con­tain equip­ment used to make beer for on and off-site con­sump­tion.

Cavell’s roof would be re­painted grey, but no other ex­ter­nal changes would be made to the build­ing.

The re­vamped premises would op­er­ate and sell al­co­hol from 8am to 2am seven days a week.

‘‘Safe trans­porta­tion op­tions will be made avail­able to pa­trons. This may in­clude the pro­vi­sion of a cour­tesy coach, sub­ject to a fea­si­bil­ity anal­y­sis to de­ter­mine de­mand,’’ the com­pany said.

No changes would be made to the ex­ist­ing park­ing avail­able.
