We Canned Springtime.
At Stone & Wood, we’re pretty excited about the growing trend of native Australian produce being used in new beers.
That’s why we were stoked to team up with our Byron neighbours – Australian Macadamias – in dreaming up this new limited-release malty lager: Malty Mac.
Based on a traditional German dunkel style beer, Malty Mac was modernised for the Aussie palate by adding roasted macadamias to the brewing process and the result: a buttery smooth, malty lager that pours with dark golden hues.
Our Byron brewer, Josh Waters, was instrumental in creating this delicious drop and believes he’s brewed an approachable beer that’s perfect for food pairing or just cooling off on one of those balmy Byron afternoons.
Those familiar with our part of the world in the Northern Rivers, would recall the green Macadamia Farms that stretch out across the Byron Hinterland. In the past 50 years, these farms have helped propel this humble little nut into becoming Australia’s 4th biggest horticultural export.
Our brewers have had so much fun working with this homegrown hero so needless to say, we’re excited to get it out to the public today. Available in our Byron and Brisbane tasting rooms for a limited time, drop by for a glass of Malty Mac while you can. It would be rude nut to. Pouring in our Tasting Rooms from Monday 15 November.
