Commemorating 10 Years of Beers.

WATCH: SWX video – Commemorating 10 Years of Beers

It’s been 10 years of beers since the first kegs rolled out of the brewery in Byron Bay, back in 2008. In our latest video, we look back with Brad (co-founder) and Caolan (head brewer), along with a couple of local characters and our team at the journey so far, along with beers we’ve released along the way.

To commemorate ‘10 Years of Beers’ for Stone & Wood we wanted to brew something special to mark the occasion. SWX is a decadent 10% imperial stout, which was barrel aged for 10 months.

SWX pours jet black with a chocolate head and features incredible depth of malt flavours and aromas of espresso, cocoa and dark fruits. The stout was matured in seasoned fortified wine barrels, which enhance the smooth, rich, flavours and aroma of oak while providing hints of cherries and chocolate. SWX is assertive and refined with a warming palate that is full-bodied but balanced by a firm bitterness.

A spectacularly big, complex and delightful brew that celebrates our journey so far and the adventures yet to come.
