Black Dog Brewery opens on Cuba Street

Black Dog Brewery has opened its doors to become the newest resident of Wellington’s Iconic Cuba Street.

“We’re really excited to finally open our doors in our new Cuba Street location,” says Black Dog’s Adrian Klemp. “It was great to gather together with some of our fellow Cuba Street residents and Black Dog friends to celebrate Wellington and the exciting new space for us to brew. We can’t wait to welcome old and new friends into the brewery.”

The opening evening saw guests entertained by an array of all things Wellington, including acoustic artist Graeme James, a Wellington local well known for his humble beginnings as a Cuba Street busker. Guests were treated to a unique culinary experience, with popular street food truck Beat Kitchen serving a bespoke Black Dog-infused menu, including Dogfather APA fried chicken, smoked pork and beef meatballs and a Black IPA chocolate brownie.

Guests of the official opening of course enjoyed a range of ice cold Black Dog favourite collaborations available on tap in the upstairs Bar area, including First Responder Pacific Ale, Dogs of Fortune and SPCA Stray-PA.

Wellington’s booming craft beer scene, combined with its creative character, makes it the perfect location for Black Dog’s HQ. The soul of the brand lies in its eccentricity and creative spirit, alike to their new home on Cuba Street.
