James McNeill was a Scotsman who came to Queenstown about 1882 where he was employed to build the Ballarat Street Bridge.  Married in 1885 he built a cottage for his family on Church Street.  Built to last, the original cottage was extended and refurbished in the 1980s ready for a new life as the new home to Dux de Lux.  Coming into it’s sixth year, Queenstown Dux de Lux specialises in beer.
