So when we took over the site there was a few obstacles that were in need of attention, and no more so than the Mountain on hole 9. Check out the youtube video from Finney's Homebrew channel and see how we got on smashing it up and rebuilding it...
Seafest is an annual event in Kaikoura that brings life back to the town at the end of the winter season. It was our first time at this event, and it was great fun. We loved the dress ups, including some Thundercats (some of them wouldn't have been born when they were first on TV!) I learned that our stand still needs some work as whilst the bar looks good, we don't have enough branding on the top of our gazebo to stick out when people are looking around. The Totara Brewings stand showed us how it is done as it really stood out.
The day after Seafest we opened the mini golf course to the public! Our friend Hamish (from Concept brewing) and his friend Luke were the first to have a go and Hamish nailed a hole in one with the very first official putt! He even held the course record for at least 2 mins (well done Luke for knocking him down a peg) We even had a group of young guys & gals walk in despite us not having our proper signage up, score! So onwards and upwards. Phase one is complete, and now on to phase two, escape room design and build. We hope that this will be completed by the new year but we need to get architects to go over the plans so we comply with the new building regs.
Over & out, Finney
The Emporium opened in October 2016 and is a place for Lau & Finney to share fun stuff they like! Expect blogs about beer, mini golf & escape rooms
