Rum and Que spung to life at New Zealand’s first BBQ Competition – Meatstock 2016. A bunch of mates that loved food, flavour and the chance to try their hand at something new. Armed with homemade rubs and sauces we immersed ourselves into a scene like no other.

Fast forward to today, Rum and Que has evolved into a family run business. Staying true to our beginnings, we’ve hung on to our flavours and continued to create and perfect a range of products we are proud to have on shelves and in the hands of competition teams and fellow food lovers to enjoy as much as we do.

For us BBQ means family, a BBQ family that we absolutely love being part of.

Culley’s – named after owner and founder Chris Cullen, a playful nickname now crafting its way as a household brand around the globe.

As an ex-chef, Chris’ creativity is endless. Chris’ boundless enthusiasm and drive is what will see Culley’s continue to challenge and make their mark on the world hot sauce stage.

Our trailer has a commercial kitchen in and is family owned and operated. Operating primarily at the Auckland Night Markets but we are also available to do private functions.

Here at Texanz BBQ we are huge barbecue enthusiasts and have researched the biggest Texan flavours by visiting the biggest bbq joints in Texas. Travelling from the DFW area to Corpus Christi and everywhere in between. We believe we have captured the taste of Texas barbecue in our rubs for you to take home.

Craft beer

Panhead is New Zealand’s very own craft brewing monster truck rally, putting the frighteners on anyone who thinks beer should mind its own business and cower behind the wine rack. Launched in 2013 out of the old Dunlop tyre factory in darkest Maidstone, we were embraced enthusiastically from the get-go by Wellington’s beer cognoscenti of beardy app developers, design grads and contractors from the Ministry of Social Development

Little Creatures was originally brewed in Australia in 2000 by a bunch of mates who loved hoppy pale ales, so decided to brew one themselves. A huge shed (and former crocodile farm) on the water’s edge in Freemantle was to become the home of this beer and the birthplace of Little Creatures Brewing Co.

It has since grown to the most successful craft brewery in Australia and is now brewed in Melbourne, Hong Kong, Singapore, New Zealand,  San Francisco and London. Little Creatures gets its name from the live yeast cultures present in the beer – affectionately known by brewers as ‘Little Creatures’, which is what gives the pale ale its distinctive cloudy appearance and unique flavour.

Hobsonville Point

Little Creatures Hobsonville Point opened in February this year. Housed in an historic seaplane hangar, built in 1939 to house TEAL’s giant Seaplanes and overlooking the Hauraki Gulf, it offers a range of Aus favourites and NZ Limited releases brewed on site. There are three dining options including, the main Little Creatures dining hall, Salty’s Fish n Chips and Kittyhawk Cocktail and Wine Bar.

And now we have our 1st Little Creatures ‘Outpost’ in the beautiful Bay of Plenty. Located in the new Bayfair Shopping Centre’s ‘Dine’ precinct; The Freeport Tavern offers all the classic Little Creatures styles, as well as some limited release options fresh from our brewery at Hobsonville Point.
