Each year under the night sky, Stone & Wood honour the ancient technique of their brewing ancestors with the ritual of adding wood fired stones to their kettle to caramelise the brew. Brewed for when the days are short and the nights are cold, their Stone Beer is a wood-fired porter. With aromas and flavours of roast barley, hints of coffee and dark chocolate, this winter release finishes with a firm bitterness.
Stone & Wood Brewing Company was established in 2008. The three boys – Brad, Jamie and Ross had spent many years working in the beer business. The dream was to quit ‘working for the man’, shed the corporate garbage and get back to basics. As the original brewers of the Northern Rivers, they built their first brewery at the eastern tip of Australia, in a part of the world where people enjoy having a beer when relaxing after catching a wave, catching a band at the pub or just catching up with friends. It’s that sort of place.

Stone and Wood acknowledge the reliance they have on their Earth to enable them to produce good beer which inspired them to start their Green Feet program. Green Feet is a company wide program they’ve been working on for a couple of years now. It’s about minimising their footprint on the Earth through striving to not only reduce, reuse and recycle but also exploring innovative practices by reimagining the ecology of brewing.
