Muskets and Moonshine

Nobody in history was more straight up and down than Queenstown’s early settlers. These were men and women who were there to work hard, seeking their fortune in gold from the Shotover River. Thanks to this rush of industry and growth in population, from 1862 onwards our town sprang into life, and along came the traders of goods and providers of services…like publicans.

Our building has a long history as a venue of trade so it’s only natural this is where we find the inspiration for Muskets and Moonshine.

The rustic simplicity of Muskets and Moonshine perfectly represents these pioneering beginnings of Queenstown and exemplifies some of our key points of difference.

We’re here to provide a relaxing, comfy spot for food, drinks and catch ups. Muskets and Moonshine is the kind of place where you can have a business meeting, pop in for coffee and a snack, enjoy a casual after work drink, or bring the family for dinner.

We keep it simple with a selection of bloody good craft beers, wines and mixed drinks.
