It is a familiar sight: A wrought iron beer carport.
But wrought-iron carports have been around since the 1800s.
“Wrought iron is a type of wrought iron,” says John Cunneen, who runs the Cunnelcraft carport in Hobart.
The carport was built in 1888, and the original carport used a wrought iron wheel and was only built to house the brewery’s own equipment.
When the beer industry began to boom in the 1960s, the carport became a destination for craft brewers and wineries.
Now, it is home to a brewery owned by the Adelaide Beer Company and a new beer bar, Beerbar.
Beer bar owner Tom Geddes said the wrought carport provided a unique space for brewers to enjoy their creations.
“There’s a very different environment, it’s really a different place to actually see the beer,” he said.
“You’re not going to be able to see the beers.
You’re not getting a view of the brewery.”
Geddes also wants to see wrought cars used to build new carports.
“I want to see a bit of the old-school carport built in a new way,” he says.
“If we can make it work, it could be a real change to the carpark.”‘
A bit of a mystery’Beer bar’s owner Tom says he’s not concerned about the history of the car, but is looking to the future.
“A lot of people think that we’re not building a carport anymore,” he explained.
“We’re building a new carport and the car park was built for a long time.”
But we’re also building a brewery, which is very much in line with the history and the way the car is built now.
“Beer bar owners Tom and John Cunten say they want to keep wrought metal carports around in the future, but only if they can get a better price for the metal.
Gedden says the wrenched carport is still a novelty.”
It’s a bit mysterious.
We don’t know why it’s there, and it’s very hard to see,” he explains.”
For the car-drinking public, they’re just going to go to a pub or a pub and just sit and enjoy the beer.
“Beerbar is in the process of putting a wrought beer car in place.
