$100,000 Funding Program Announced For Brissie Legends.

Applications Open This August.

If you or someone you know is busy making the great city of Brisbane even better, this one’s for you.

We’re stoked to announce our inGrained Foundation is launching its Large Grants Program into the River City this August, offering a $100,000 funding pool to eligible Brisbane not-for-profits.

inGrained are on the look out for a diverse range of organisations who are keen to apply for a grant between $5,000 and $25,000 in order to continue, or improve, the amazing work they’re doing in the community.

For this inaugural round of Brisbane Grants, inGrained are seeking to support projects that fall into the following categories:

  • Conservation of natural resources and habitats.
  • Action on climate change.
  • Mental health and wellbeing.
  • Accommodation and homelessness.
  • Inclusion and diversity.

To be successful, applicants must operate within one of these categories and be able to provide information on how the inGrained funds will have a tangible outcome for the community.

James Perrin from the inGrained Foundation said of launching the Grants Program in Brisbane, “After running grants programs in the Northern Rivers for the last four years, we are so excited to be expanding to the Brisbane community, just as Stone & Wood did a few years ago.

We encourage applications from a wide range of social and environmental organisations in the region and look forward to hearing about the incredible work we can support.”

Founded as a separate not-for-profit by Stone & Wood Brewing Co (Fermentum Group) in 2018, the inGrained Foundation works to attract, generate and direct donations to grassroots charities.

Earlier this year, the inGrained Foundation held their fourth Northern Rivers Large Grants program where they donated over $200,000 to 10 organisations.

From Monday 15 August, Brisbane social and environmental not-for-profits with DGR status are encouraged to read the guidelines and apply before Friday 9 September by visiting the inGrained Foundation’s website.

Been Missin' Our Strawberry Sundae Kissin?

Our Juicy Tribute to A QLD Icon Returns.

Back for its third year, our strawberry and cream sour sensation – Strawberry Sundae Kisses – has returned and is bubbling away in our Brisbane Brewery, getting ready for an early August release.

Packed with 60kg of Queensland strawberries, this gorgeous little limited-edition is not only delicious, but has a heart of gold.

Each year, proceeds from our Strawberry Sundae Kisses, sold exclusively from our Brisbane Brewery, are directed to The Common Good, the fundraising initiative of The Prince Charles Hospital in Brisbane.

For 33 years, the Royal Queensland Show- the Ekka –  provided The Common Good with one of its biggest fundraising drives of the year, with the sales of its iconic Strawberry Sundaes going direct to the charity.

So, in 2020 when the Ekka was cancelled (for the first time) due to Covid restrictions, our Brisbane Head Brewer, Mick Barnes got curious about how we could get on board to help the cause.

The result: Strawberry Sundae Kisses.

Based on the traditional Berliner Weisse beer style, brewed with fresh strawberries, lactose and vanilla added during fermentation for a creamy, delectable beer with hints of Ekka strawberry sundaes.

For the past two years, the legends of Southeast Queensland have absolutely got behind our delicious homage, with the brew selling out both years in a matter of weeks.

This year, with the Ekka back on (touching wood, crossing fingers), we’re thrilled to continue to be a part of The Common Good story, with the 2022 Strawberry Sundae Kisses batch being sold not just at our Fortitude Valley Brewery, but also at the big old show itself!

You can grab a glass of SSK in the phenomenal Craft Beer Alley at this year’s Ekka while chomping down on the original Ekka classic, Strawberry Sundae.

As with previous years, all proceeds from the sales of Strawberry Sundae Kisses will go towards The Common Good and all the amazing work that takes place at The Prince Charles Hospital in Brissie.

Catch Strawberry Sundae Kisses at our Brisbane Brewery from Thursday 4 August and at the Royal Queensland Show from Saturday 6 August.

Our Ekka-Inspired Beer is Now On-Tap at Our Brisbane Brewery!

Enjoy our strawberries & cream sour and help raise funds for The Prince Charles Hospital

Earlier this year, when we heard Brisbane’s annual Ekka – aka the Royal Queensland Show – was cancelled, our team thought about one thing: ice-cream.

But not just any ice-cream; they were thinking about the Ekka’s iconic Strawberry Sundae – a delicious strawberries and cream sensation that every year helps raise funds for The Common Good, the fundraising initiative of The Prince Charles Hospital in Brisbane.

That’s when our Brisbane brewer Mick had an idea.

We can’t exactly make ice-cream – but we can make beer.

And so, we did. Our Ekka-inspired strawberries and cream sour Strawberry Sundae Kisses is on tap at our Brisbane brewery from today!

Proceeds from our Strawberry Sundae Kisses – and our special beer ice-cream floats – sold between Wednesday 12 and Sunday 16 August will be directed to The Common Good to help fund critical health research with The Prince Charles Hospital.

This beer is a collaborative effort between us and our friends at The Common Good, who even came and helped us add 60kg of Queensland strawberries to the brew in late July – including The Common Good CEO Michael Hornby and Research Manager Dr Stephanie Yerkovich.

Come down and enjoy a Strawberry Sundae Kisses at our Brisbane brewery from today and help us support The Common Good!

Heads-up that our offerings for Byron and Brisbane are currently different, in line with respective state government guidelines.


Our Tasting Room in Byron Bay is now open to 95 people (Tasting Room and outdoor beer garden)! That means we’re no longer running pre-booked Welcome Back sessions, and that you can simply show up and order whichever beer and food you like. What’s more, our canteen run by 100 Mile Table is back open too!

Groups will be limited to 10 people (i.e. please don’t come in a group of 11 or more), while we’ll still be physical distancing and practising sanitisation.

We’re also back to usual opening hours.


We’re still running our pre-booked Welcome Back sessions at our Brisbane brewery but from Monday 1 June we’ve increased our capacity to 20 people.

Our Welcome Back sessions invite you and your mates to pre-book your spot in the brewery and enjoy a tasting paddle, a meal, a quick tour/chat with our crew, a $5 voucher for our bottleshops and a $5 voucher for our online store.

Additional purchases for beer, merch or takeaway cartons or sharers during your Welcome Back session can be made on card.

What if I had already booked a Welcome Back session for Byron?

In line with NSW Government guidelines, from Monday 1 June we’re able to host 50 people in our Byron Tasting Room (not Brisbane at this stage). With this in mind, we’ve removed our booking system for Welcome Back sessions in Byron from Monday 1 June.

Nope. Whether you’re riding solo, in a pair or with a group of 10 mates, we look forward to hosting you. But spots are limited (10 pax per session), so we recommend you pre-book yours soon.

If you are in a group of 10 mates, you can book a session out and enjoy the brewery all to yourselves.


Of course, it’s early days so our specially trained crew will be keeping the breweries spotless and sanitised during your visit, with thorough cleaning between sessions. Any additional purchases will be card only, plus our crew will be practising physical distancing where possible.


You know the drill – if you’re not feeling well or something else comes up, please call our Brisbane brewery on 0476 446 336 and email [email protected] or our Byron Bay brewery on 0429 060 262 and email [email protected] to fully transfer your booking to another time or day. We do ask that if you’re sick to please reschedule at a reasonable time in the future.


Yes! If you have any dietary requirements, please highlight this in the comments section on the booking checkout or alternatively call the brewery to let the staff know at least a day in advance.


As you know, things have been really tough for our industry and for independent breweries, wine makers, producers, growers, venue owners and hospo staff around the country. But while we acknowledge Phase One of the government’s reopening guidelines doesn’t work for all venues, we feel grateful that we’re able to connect with you again in our spaces.

The Welcome Back sessions are subject to change as the government guidelines move into the following phases, but we’ll keep you in the loop about that.

For now, we want to THANK YOU for your support. By supporting independent Australian beer, you’ve been #KeepingLocalAlive and ensuring the future of indie beer will be strong in the future.

Meet The Chef Behind The New Mouth-watering Menu at Our Brisbane Brewery

We chat with our current resident kitchen chef

Meet Simon Palmer – he’s a chef from the Session Canteen who is heading up our resident kitchen at the Brisbane brewery for the next month.

Tell us a little bit about yourself and your background
I’m originally from Newcastle and worked in Brisbane restaurants Urbane, Gerard’s Bistro and e’cco bistro throughout my career. Outside of work, I spend my time with my wife and two girls. 

What inspired you to get into cooking? 

I started cooking as a job but quickly grew to enjoy learning new techniques and flavours. 

How long have you been in the industry? 

I have been in the industry for over 18 years, starting out as a kitchen hand. 

Tell us about your unique style and what aspects drew you towards this. 
Through the experiences and mentors I’ve had, simple but strong flavours have come to be front of thought in my cooking. I really enjoy getting the most out of every ingredient I use. 

What ingredients do you like working with most and why? 

I love the challenge of cooking octopus to perfection and the endless pairing of different flavours and textures that work with it. 

Anything special that we might see on the menu over the next couple of months? 

I am hoping to perfect bacon cheeseburgers for a late-night special using the fried cheese donut recipe to make the buns. 

What are you most looking forward to when taking over our Canteen? 

I’m really excited about working with like-minded people and giving an alternative to the usual boring brewery food offering. 

What’s your favourite knock-off beer? 

Definitely the Green Coast Lager, one is never enough!


Shoestring fries with sea salt & house aioli (GF, VG) $9

Grilled corn with smoked pepper & lime oil (GF, VG) $9

Pumpkin hummus with spicy chickpeas & chargrilled pita (VG) $10

Blackwood Collective: An Eye for Detail

Meet the craftsman who handmade the furniture for our Brisbane brewery

Feat. Gareth from Blackwood Collective

Besides the 100-year-old exposed beams and several shiny tanks behind the bar, one of the first things you might notice at our new brewery in Brisbane are the tables and chairs.

Crafted with mixed hardwood and black metal frames, we think the furniture’s striking lines and natural timber tones complement the brewery’s urban-industrial interior and make for beautiful drinking surfaces.

 For this, we have Gareth Robertson from Blackwood Collective in Brisbane to thank.

With a keen eye for detail, carpenter and furniture designer Gareth runs his bespoke furniture workshop Blackwood Collective out of Stafford, Brisbane, and specialises in carpentry and joinery. Gareth’s approach champions functionality, aesthetics and both classic and modern techniques, while his work captures his experience in high-end renovations and a creativity honed through world travel.

The name Blackwood Collective pays homage to Gareth’s favourite timber, Tasmanian Blackwood. A proud Indigenous man, Gareth prizes Blackwood for its traditional uses by Indigenous peoples as boomerangs, spear throws, clap sticks and other tools.

Check out of Gareth’s work @blackwoodcollective and next time you’re in the brewery, be sure to enjoy his pieces.

Stone & Wood to establish a presence in Brisbane

There is something brewing in Brisbane...

For some years we have been looking at establishing a Brisbane outpost, a place for our loyal fans to visit and somewhere for our Brisbane based team to call home.

With the new brewery project in Byron Bay coming to a close over the next few months, we now think the time is right to take the step of bringing our take on a brewery experience to Brisbane.

The venue is located in Fortitude Valley and will house a small brewery to be used for brewing a rotating range of beers for on site consumption in the tasting room. It will also incorporate an event space and provide offices and storage for our Brisbane crew.

A big part of what we do in our existing Byron Bay tasting room is centred around education and developing people’s appreciation for good beer. We believe we can add value to the emerging good beer scene in Brisbane and continue to grow the market by adding our beer experience into the mix.

We have found a great space in a building with a heritage overlay, and we’re looking forward to letting our team loose to give it a new lease of life in a very Stone & Wood way.

It’s early days for us, and it’s always difficult to put time lines on these sorts of projects, but we would hope to be opening the doors in early in 2019.
