Our Crew: The Craft Brewers

Bridge Road Brewers don’t feature Ned Kelly in their logo for nothing! Cargo Crew loves craft beer and these Victorian craft brewers are authentic as, preferring to create their beer from scratch. They use their own production equipment on site in their home town of Beechworth – the heart of Ned Kelly land. Small batch, hands on brewing means that each bottle of Bridge Road gets the attention it deserves – a point #OurCrew go to great lengths to land. “Others go to great lengths to put up a facade of a small hands on facility, when in reality their beer is being produced by a central brewery, who is responsible for many ‘brewery’ brands. Be sure to find out who is making the beer you purchase.” See, authentic as. Bridge Road Brewers is located on Ford St, Beechworth, Australia. Header image by Gears and Beers.

Cargo Crew Interview on Switzer TV

In July 2016, our Creative Director, Felicity Rodgers and Operations Director, Paul Rodgers were invited to Foxtel’s head office in Sydney to talk business on Switzer TV! Flic and Paul loved sharing the Cargo Crew story with Peter Switzer, from its humble beginnings as a boutique Melbourne fashion label, to a Telstra Small Business Award Winning and ever-expanding Modern Uniform wholesaler, that has seen the company grow in two years from a staff of 8 to 20 employees. In the interview, they discuss business insights and company growth, and the evolution of the Cargo Crew brand which has attracted the attention of both national and international businesses. After five years of developing a label in the fashion industry, Felicity saw a gap in the uniform market, and “realised the idea of using my design abilities and taking that to a corporate offering”. The rest, as they say, is history. Watch the full interview on Switzer.com.au.
