Brewery Doors

In the 19th century heyday of Christchurch’s textile industry, these doors would have opened and closed like the beat of a heart to allow for the passage of goods and materials. This tradition continued when the Twisted Hop Real Ale Brewpub opened in Poplar Lane. After a full year of post-earthquake uncertainty, CERA allowed us access to the red zoned site to retrieve infrastructure and equipment from the soon-to-be demolished building.
Now the fate of these sturdy gateways to the world has come full circle, as they take their rightful place in the new brewery.  As a reminder of a former life, the liquor licence from the old Poplar Lane location still hangs for brewery staff’s inspiration.
