Meet The Crew: Hughie Doyle, Road Crew
Good beer may be our reason for being, but great people are at the heart of our company.
From the dedicated Sales Crew out on the road to the friendly voices on the phone in our Customer Service team, every member of the passionate Stone & Wood family has a story to tell.
With that in mind, we thought we’d open the brewery gates and introduce some of the legends who bring their best to our beers every day.
Introducing Hugh “Hughie” Doyle, one of the O.G’s of Stone & Wood and basically part of the furniture here at the brewery.
WATCH ON FOR A DAY IN THE LIFE OF HUGHIE:
Hughie started with the business during our humble beginnings back in 2012, a huge 10 year milestone we’ve all had the pleasure to be a part of.
From his infectious laugh to his one-liners, Hughie brings tonnes of energy and fun to not only the business but the pubs and venues he visits regularly during his weekly rounds of Brisbane.
In honour of Hugh and his 10 year milestone with Stone & Wood, he had the opportunity to hit the brew deck with our Brisbane Brewer, Barnsy, and brew is very own Kolsch, a favourite style he has always loved.
“I’ve always been mesmerised how it’s a lager style beer, brewed like an ale,” Hughie Says.
Get to know Hughie and check out our next episode of Meet The Crew.

THE BEST PART OF WORKING FOR STONE & WOOD:
The Crew. The crew here are all A-1. We’ve all got a similar buzz and we’re all here for the same reason, for something better.
Taking care of his Brissie Sales team and hitting the road making sure we’re getting the good stuff out into the hands of those thirsty Brisbanites!
WHEN HE’S NOT AT WORK, YOU CAN FIND HUGHIE:
Enjoying the fruits of his labour in the backyard at home or smelling the taps at some of Brisbane’s best establishments.
HUGHIE’S 10 YEARS WITH STONE & WOOD!
Hugh has been flying the flag for Stone & Wood in Brisbane for 10 years and as tradition goes, if you make it to 10 years with S&W, you get to brew your very own beer.
With Brisbane head brewer Mick Barnes at his side, Hugh turned his hand at brewing his very own German-style Kolsch. After four long weeks of waiting, you can now sample Hugh’s Island Kolsch at our Brisbane and Byron Breweries.
If Hughie’s tale has inspired you to become a part of the Stone & Wood family, head here to check out our current vacancies.
THE FINAL RESULTS OF HUGHIE’S SPECIAL BREW?
A delicate Kolsch but with a tropical twist. Steering away from tradition, this delightful number boasts all the nostalgic characteristics of a Kolsch but is bolstered by tropical aromas of passionfruit, mango and coconut. Sorry if you wanted to try this one, frothers, it’s all gone.
