The shortening days and that southerly breeze signals Autumns’ arrival and that we’re heading into Stone Beer season.
This weekend, our wood fire will burn bright into the night and from it will come the glowing hot stones that’ll go into the kettle to rouse the boil, intensifying the malt characters of our special brew and adding subtle but rich toffee like flavours when the cooled caramelised brewing stones are added into the fermenter.
To do as it was done in the middle ages is something we take pride in when producing this annual Limited Release and the lighting of the fire is a damn fine excuse to bring people together and catch up with our crew of friends and family.
The brewing of our Stone Beer is a celebration of beer, its history, future and connection to the community.
Stay tuned, for more from our Stone Brew Day, for when the 2014 release will be available in May, our collectable Stone Bottles (featured below) and our Festival of the Stone!
