Why do we celebrate Festival of The Stone every year?

Festival of the Stone 2024 will raise money for Byron Shire homeless hub, Fletcher Street Cottage. Byron Shire’s homelessness rate is currently the highest in NSW and Fletcher Street Cottage provides support, information, referral and advocacy to people at risk of homelessness and those already sleeping rough.

Festival of the Stone began as a celebration of Stone & Wood’s annual release of Stone Beer and the first tapping of the keg. The 2024 Stone Beer brew is a wood-fired porter ideal for chilly winter nights. A nod to medieval brewing, it’s a tradition held dear since Stone & Wood’s humble beginnings, seventeen years ago.

Every May since Stone & Wood began, alongside others in the brewing industry, Stone & Wood brews its woodfired porter Stone Beer in preparation for winter. This is called Stone Brew Day. A decadent porter with dark roasted malts is brewed to give coffee and dark chocolate flavours to the beer. Then, on an open fire, volcanic stones sourced from the nearby hinterland are heated, before being lowered, glowing-red into the kettle, which lends smoky caramel notes to the beer. The moment the woodfired stones touch the wort with a loud hisss is a moment for celebration. A month later, Stone Beer is tapped at the annual Festival of the Stone, where the community comes together to enjoy fresh beer, live music, good food and winter cheer.

What food will be at Festival of The Stone?

Those in need of sustenance at Festival of the Stone are in for a treat with some very tasty options available. From handmade and freshly baked Byron Bay Pretzels to artisan pizza from Gunter’s Flammkuchen and delicious wurst from The Kranski Sisters food truck, you won’t go hungry! Plus, masters of the grill, Traegar will be on ground doing BBQ demos and sampling.

Festival of The Stone is Family Friendly!

Bringing the ankle biters along? Festival of the Stone has that covered too with Malt Disney Art & Craft Zone. Malt Disney is a free style creative area where kids can let their maker imagination run wild with paints, collage, mask making, drawing, crown creating, play doh and more. Plus there’s garden games galore to keep them engaged and burning up that energy!
