Rossco’s Road Trip Pulling Into A Town Near You.
Over the next two months, Rossco, our main man with the flowing mullet, is bringing a slice of summer to a beer garden near you.
Revving up old Trev the Troopie, Rossco will be hitting the open road, visiting epic East Coast locations and spreading the delicious word about Stone & Wood beers.
Not just there for refreshments, Rossco has also organised live music and giveaways for each place he pulls up, so every stop will feel like a party.
Starting early Feb in Melbourne, Trev & Rossco will be visiting the South Coast, Eastern Suburbs, Northern Suburbs, Newcastle, Coffs Coast, Sunshine Coast and Brisbane.
It’s free entry, just round up the crew and turn up.
Supporting local communities
Working in partnership with legendary venues along the way, Trev’s Troopie Tour will also be supporting local clubs or charities at each stop, with money from each beer sold from a Karma Keg going straight back into the community.

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.
