Celebrating the opening of our Murwillumbah brewery, we’ve brewed a commemorative beer to mark this special point in our journey…
Touched first by morning light and often clothed in cloud, Wollumbin (also known as Mt Warning) is the Indigenous word for Cloud Catcher. Casting its gaze over the green rolling valleys of the Northern Rivers and out toward the Pacific’s blue horizon, this mountain is a symbol of our connection to this region.
In this part of the world, the natural beauty of the area is loved and respected and the Indigenous Bundjalung people see the mountain as a site of significance. Our brewery sits at its base, where we can see it welcome the sun and the squalls, and catch an occasional cloud.
This full flavoured ale is a commemorative beer celebrating the opening of our Murwillumbah brewery up the road from Byron Bay and marks this special point in Stone & Wood’s journey.
Hopped with all Australian Galaxy and Ella, Cloud Catcher has a hoppy aroma of apricots and grapefruit that tickles your tiny nose hairs, with a full bodied mouth feel from the blend of pale and crystal malts and a dry clean bitterness that just makes you want more.
We worked with Melbourne based artist and illustrator Jase Harper to come up with Cloud Catcher’s distinctive design. First off the rank, this is the first of more Limited Releases to come from our brewery in Byron Bay in the future, where each time, we will look to enlist a different artist to design the label and packaging.
Cloud Catcher will start hitting shelves and going on tap over the weekend in and around our backyard. So keep an eye out in the Northern Rivers, on the Gold and Sunny Coast and in Brissy.
Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and Tassie you have not been forgotten! You’ll start seeing Cloud Catcher’s coloured bottles in selected bottle shops from next week and on tap in venues at the end of the month.
