The $29 million site redevelopment at Speight's brewery in
Dunedin is on track to be completed by the end of this year,
A true southern man, Pete Moffat does not just drink
Speight's, he compiles a history of the Dunedin brewery by
collecting anything and everything associated with it.
An excavator, with a bucket and demolition jaws, dismantles
the former office block at Speight's Brewery in Rattray St,
Dunedin, as part of redevelopment plans at the site.
Black smoke from Speight's Brewery could clear if Lion joins
a growing move away from coal-fired boilers in Dunedin.
Emissions from Speight's chimney might be looking darker but
the brewery is still within its resource consent limits, a
company spokeswoman says.
Speight's brewery has been told to reduce the smoke coming
from its chimney or it could face a consent review.
Dunedin's Speight's Brewery has nearly doubled production
because of the Canterbury quake.
Water quality, penguins and eels will all benefit from the
latest round of funding from the Speight's Environment Fund.
It seems copper is the coin colour of choice for patrons of
the Speight's Brewery spring with more than 82,000 10c coins
being exchanged for water at the Rattray St tap.
The amount of money being donated by people using the
Speight's Brewery tap in Dunedin is only a drop in the ocean
to what could be given, leaving an environmental fund short.
