our story

In 2008, three friends from the beer business got together and decided to build a brewery that did things a little differently. Inspired by the idea of creating a village brewery, being a business with conscious has been our focus since Day One.

Traditionally, everyone in the community had a role to play – the butcher, the baker and the local brewer. A brewery didn’t just supply fresh beer to the locals, it was also the meeting place and could be relied on to support the wider community. Just as in these times, we feel it is a part of our responsibility to support the people and environment that supports us.

As craft beer has taken off in Australia, Stone & Wood has expanded past our home in Byron Bay, but the vision the boys had when they first sat around the kitchen table dreaming up the original Pacific Ale hasn’t changed.  

Giving back to the community, working with purpose and the love of beer is what gets us out of bed in the morning. For us, that is the way it should be.

Our Home

Established in Byron Bay in 2008, the Northern Rivers of NSW is at the very heart of Stone & Wood. While we may have expanded beyond the borders of this region, the eclectic, passionate Northern Rivers community have inspired the values and culture of our business, while the surrounding natural beauty is reflected in our beers.

We also brew for those special Northern Rivers moments: after a hinterland hike, while catching a live band or straight out of the surf, our beers are for times like these.

our team

At Stone & Wood, we love what we do but our focus as a team extends well beyond the 9-5. Our core values as a workplace includes focus on family, community, sustainability, simplicity and balance. With a diverse and passionate crew working across the Northern Rivers of NSW and the rest of Australia, we’re proud of our work family and the magic they create together.
