Just like the Willy Wonka of beer, we’re opening our big brewery gates to let the public in for a peek at our Murwillumbah Open Day on Saturday, 6 August.
Though we’re short on Oompa Loompas, we do have some of our best brewers on hand ready to show you all the behind the scenes treats of our Murwillumbah (Murbah) Brewery with Brewery Tours being held on the day by our crew.
This is where your favourite Stone & Wood beers get brewed and bottled so there’s no better place to enjoy a few fresh ones among friends at one of the many pop-up bars spread across the site.
Also pouring for one day only, will be Murbah Session Beer. An easy-drinking kolsch lager, MSB is brewed in honour of the resilient legends who reside in our beloved Murbah. We’re proud to have this Northern Rivers enclave as the home of our brewery and MSB is our way of saying thanks to our local community.
Bringing the fiesta to the festival will be an awesome local musical line up and the region’s best selection of food trucks and market stalls, further details to be announced in the weeks ahead.
A day for all the family, there will be a designated area for the kiddies, with face painting and arts and crafts, so parents will also get a chance to kick back.
Entry to the day is by gold coin donation with all profits from the festival going towards an amazing local cause: Wedgetail Retreat.
Wedgetail Retreat provide free palliative care to the Northern Rivers community, giving locals and their families a warm and welcoming environment to call home. Operating without government funding, Wedgetail relies on the support of its community to keep its doors open and continue with the amazing care they provide.
At our dedicated kids area, Malt Disney, hosted by Kidz Klub, provides little ones with fun workshops, arts and crafts and garden games, and a special guest appearance from Shorty Brown the Clown. Parents will be required to supervise their little ones.
