Stone & Wood x McTavish – The craft of brewing and shaping
We’ve taken a different approach to the traditional brew to style model. We make handcrafted beer in a part of the world where people enjoy having a beer when relaxing after catching a wave, catching a band at the pub or just catching up with friends. We shape our beers to compliment these local conditions.
Co-Founder and Head Brewer Brad Rogers of Stone & Wood used the feeling of coming straight out of the water on a Summer’s day, with boardies still dripping, running across the hot sand, past the sunbakers, over the grassy knoll and straight into the beer garden to grab a beer that would satisfy that insatiable thirst to create our Pacific Ale…
Brewing as a craft takes a connection to the community, applied skill, experience, creativity and knowledge. Likewise, so does shaping a surfboard.
Godfather of surfing and pioneer Bob McTavish, founded McTavish back in 1962. Still surfing everyday, his connection to the industry, the local area and innate understanding of how to shape a board for a certain break and ability have ensured his surfboards have remained the benchmark.
While both enjoy creating things, the real connection between the craft of brewing and shaping is the shared passion for using them.
