Wild For Wilderness – Raising Money for Our National Parks

We are so proud to be supporting our mates over at Pony Rider and The National Project as we bring to life the inaugural Wild For Wilderness Van Life festival. The goal of Pony Rider’s #TheNationalProject is to raise funds to support a ‘Land Buy Back’ scheme, where areas of land are bought to protect, regenerate, grow and create new Aussie National Parks.

Based in the Glenworth Valley and spread over two days, the Van Life event features adventure films and IRL adventures by day and live music under the stars by night. For the keen ones, there’s kayaking, hiking, mountain biking or horse riding, and for those feeling more zen, we’ve got breathwork, yoga and native food walks. Heading back into the campsite, there’s food trucks, cold beers, live music and good times.

Tickets are $150 per person and if sleeping in your wheels isn’t your thing, there’s a limited number of glamping sites too. 20% from ticket sales and all proceeds from the bar will be donated, along with other initiatives throughout the weekend.

Use the buttons below for more info on The National Project and Wild For Wilderness, or to buy tickets.

Q&A with Rossco

Before the endless summer begins, let’s get to know the enigma that is Stone & Wood’s Rossco.

Where in the world do you hail from?

I’ve lived all over this wide, brown land! Born and raised in country SA, but completed my high schooling and university degree in Ballarat, Victoria. Since then, I’ve quite literally ‘seen the light’ 😁 and moved to Ballina in 2020, and I’m lucky to now call the Northern Rivers home.

What inspired your move up to the Northern Rivers?

There aren’t too many Aussies that didn’t feel the impacts of COVID-19, Victorian’s especially! 2020 was meant to be a big year for my athletic career (basketball), and I had grand plans for the season ahead.

When the lockdowns hit, I had plenty of reflection time (and beer drinking time!). I had a change of heart and decided I was more suited to the laidback surfer lifestyle that Byron promises. Mum’s side of the fam also live in Ballina, so it made a lot of sense to relocate up here.

What’s been your greatest adventure?

When I finished high school in 2014, I decided to take a gap year and backpack Europe. This would easily go down as my greatest adventure! I was young, naive and had a hunger for exploration and new experiences. This adventure taught me so much about the world but also about myself and so I always recommend travelling as much as you can!

Some of the lessons I learned along this journey weren’t cheap. In Beijing I was scammed by two sweet old Chinese women – but that’s a story to share over a Pacific Ale…or 3!

Favourite place you’ve discovered on a road trip?

This is an easy one! When I was 11, my parents sold the house and bought a caravan to circumnavigate Australia. It was on this voyage that we stopped in a small place in northern WA called Ningaloo Reef. Ningaloo was nature’s theme park to an 11-year-old grommet like myself. We went diving with whale sharks, snorkelling with sea turtles, reef sharks and dolphins…right off the beach we were camping on!

What’s your all-time Aussie holiday spot?

For this one I would have to go with Kangaroo Island in South Australia. I have an uncle and Aunt who live in Kingscote there and my family have holidayed there for as long as I can remember. I have so many special memories from that place such as learning to fish and catch crabs from my uncle’s boat. The beaches are pristine and the island itself has such a low population that you can escape all the noise of the mainland.

You’ve just come in from a swim on the beach, what do you choose for lunch – fish & chips, old school burger or vegan sushi?

Fish & Chips is a timeless classic but to be completely honest, I would have to say that a burger hits the spot most often. Anything from Wagyu patty with the lot or something southern-fried…I think the burger wins! (Providing it comes with chips). Check out our fav Fish & Chips recipe.

And finally, best beer to crack open after a long day on the dusty road?

Nothing beats a Pacific Ale after a day on the road! I’ve been drinking these from back in my Ballarat days and I haven’t found a better beer to share a sunset with.

Stay tuned for more details and to follow Ross & Trev’s on the road adventures, make sure you’re following us on Instagram & Facebook.

Festival of The Stone Raises $20,000 For Byron's Homeless

We Came. We Partied. We Donated.

We’re stoked to announce our Festival of the Stone held on Saturday 3 June, raised $20,000 for Byron’s homeless and rough sleeping community service, Fletcher Street Cottage.

Over 1800 people passed through our gates to come together, shake off a tough start to the year and dance the night away for a good cause.

With an awesome musical line-up that appeared across two stages, local legends Drop Legs and Death By Denim packed out the mainstage with Melbourne rockers, The Delta Riggs capping off the night with an epic set.

Inside the Brewery, our brewtanks became the illuminated backdrop for one heady dancefloor as the Club Raiders DJS, Cashew and Yazmin dropped some fresh and frothy beats.  

Most importantly, in the process of this revelry, all ticket, beer and raffle sales were steadily raising funds to go directly to Fletcher Street.

Outside of Sydney, the Byron Shire has the largest rough-sleeping population in Australia (even bigger than Melbourne’s), making the Fletcher Street Cottage and its services such a crucial part of the Byron community. They’re open every day, ready with breakfast, hot showers, laundry and counselling services for those in need.

Our Events Guru, Sally G, was blown away by the happy vibe brought by the big crowd on the day.

Sally said, “It’s such an honour to put on an event where locals can come together and really enjoy themselves. Holding it in support of such an important issue for our region, just adds that extra layer of meaning.

There was such a happy spirit here on Saturday, a good sign that big events in Byron are back and here to stay.”

Stone & Wood is proud to support Fletcher Street Cottage and other local grassroots organisations through our not-for-profit arm, the inGrained Foundation.

Cheers to our mates at Red Stockholm for capturing the night. Visit our Facebook page for the full collection of photos from the night.

Spend the day as a Stone & Wood Brewer!

Introducing our new one-day immersive Stone & Wood Brew Experience


In our experience, there those who enjoy a good beer – and then there are those who want to dive head-first into beer education, history and brewing. It’s no surprise to us that many of our drinkers sit within this second category!

Well, we have great news for you guys: you now have the opportunity to get your hands dirty behind the scenes at our brewery in Byron Bay!

The Stone & Wood Brew Experience is an all-day immersion that invites those seeking a deeper understanding of beer and the brewing industry to an all-inclusive day of brewing a Stone & Wood all-year or one of our Pilot Batch beers.

 With groups limited to four pax and guided by two of our crew members, participants also enjoy a brewery tour, Cicerone-guided sensory training, tastings poured straight from the tank and casual information sessions on our story and approach to conscious business.

Besides the hands-on brewing activities, packages include transfer from Byron Bay CBD, breakfast, lunch at the brewery’s canteen, beers throughout the day and a pub crawl through Byron town, plus an exclusive merch pack when you finish up.

Priced at $350 per person, the Stone & Wood Brew Experience will run every fortnight from Thursday 5 September – a good idea for Father’s Day coming up (nudge, nudge).

Tickets are on sale now here! Give us a call if you’re interested in any more information on (02) 6685 5173.

Murbah Brewery Open Day - Stone & Wood Brewing Co.

Come to our Murbah Brewery's Open Day, Saturday 4 March.

Get along to our Murbah Open Day on 4 March and support the community’s charity of choice, The Wedgetail Retreat and Tweed Palliative Support.

As Murwillumbah’s local brewer, we can’t wait to re-open the brewery’s gates to the community…Our family friendly Open Day will run from 11-5, with entertainment, food, drinks and some fun for the kids, sorted!

We’ve lined up live tunes from Dos Loona, Holly Tapp and Tim Shou, a jumping castle and, Murbah Brewery tours running every half an hour, explaining our story, the brewing process and a few of our sustainability initiatives.

Food trucks JR Smokehouse and The Backyard Chef, two of the region’s best, will be pulling up to keep bellies full and Keith Coffee Shop and Barber will be making sure the crowd stays caffeinated…

Now lets talk about beer…. and not just any beer. We’ve brewed an exclusive Pilot Batch just for Open Day. Why is it so special? It’s an ode to the infamous ‘Murbah Swamp Beer’. A legendary local tale, where back in 2001, a semi trailer carrying pallets of beer ran off the Pacific Highway. Cartons of brews fell into the Tweed River…and the locals wasted no time in diving in to salvage what they could (some were still icey-cold). Check out the Murbah swamp beer video.

Our tribute ‘Murbah Swamp Beer’ will be tapped at Open Day alongside a few of our other refreshing brews. Beers will be $5 and there is a gold coin entry fee with all profits raised donated to the Wedgetail Retreat and Tweed Palliative Support, so they can continue their amazing work helping the community.

Lock in the date, Saturday 4 March, and get along to our second brewery’s Open Day to support an epic local cause.
