Topic: The Malt House, 71 Colombo Street, Beckenham

Topic type:

In 1869, The Lyttelton Times reported that Roger Deacon and William Vincent had spent more than £2000 building "one of the finest malthouses in New Zealand" to service their city brewery. However, with the merger of the country's breweries in the late 1920s, the malthouse became a grain store and then a building depot, before becoming the home of the Canterbury Children's Theatre group in 1965.
