While some companies of yesterday give business a bad name, we believe that in 2019 and beyond we can use business – and beer – as a force for good. We believe it’s our responsibility, like all good businesses, to work for more than profit alone.
What is a good business, then? In fact, in the world of brewing, what is good beer?
For us, ‘good’ means more than the taste of our beer or the quality of the experience at our Tasting Room; it reflects how we fulfil our role as the local brewer and add value to our communities – it encapsulates our whole approach to business.
Some time ago, to help guide this approach, we created something called the Stone & Wood Wheel, a stakeholder model that represents all of the communities that relate to our business and how we work with these in mind. We consider this Wheel our compass that guides us toward true north.
Looking ahead after ten years of Stone & Wood, we thought we’d take the opportunity to share with you something we’ve put together: the ‘Beer as a Force for Good’ Report.
Brief and easy-to-read, the ‘Beer as a Force for Good’ Report captures some of the achievements we’re proud of and how our different communities have helped us reach them – including you, our drinkers.
Whether you’re here for a quick scan or keen to dive deeper into what makes Stone & Wood the way we are, this report is a way of keeping you up-to-date. Thanks for your time and happy reading! Cheers.
