Emerson’s Brewery started as a small, family owned craft beer company and has over the years progressed, with the help of beer giant Lion Breweries, to now having built a new
$25 million, 8.4 million litre capacity brewery in Dunedin.

It includes a restaurant for up to 250 people and a micro brewery for Richard Emerson’s special brews. Family ties with the railway have been the main design theme for this build with the inclusion of special features like the railway floor in the restaurant and the steam whistle outside.

Therefore Canterbury Clay Bricks Ltd “Oxford” brick was specified for the job for its industrial feel. The higher colour variation and scorch marks on the smooth red brick, in combination with the pitched roof line, is reminiscent of the city’s old locomotive sheds.
