We couldn’t be happier with where we are today, it’s been a wonderful adventure working with these awesome new businesses and taking customers to the best craft beer in our local area. A combination of Kiwi’s growing interest and internationals well-known knowledge of craft beer is giving Queenstown’s beer scene the recognition it deserves.
