Who We Are
Born and raised in Byron Bay, we’re proudly local and independent, brewing and bottling fresh approachable beer in the Northern Rivers of NSW.
The story of Stone & Wood began in 2008 when three friends – Brad, Ross and Jamie – decided, after many years in the brewing industry, to get away from the world of big beer and start their own thing.
Inspired by the idea of the ‘village brewery’ – that is, a brewery that brews quality beer while giving back to the wider community – Brad, Ross and Jamie founded Stone & Wood in a modest shed in Byron Bay’s industrial estate and began following their vision of creating a conscious local business.
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.
We’re proud, and fortunate, to call the Northern Rivers our home. The region’s eclectic, passionate 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.
Of course, our team – across the Northern Rivers and Australia – make Stone & Wood what it is. A down-to-earth and diverse bunch who all share a love for beer, it’s our mutual passion, values and community spirit that bind us together. Plus, thanks to being independent, our team are able to be shareholders in the business through our Employee Share Scheme – over 70% of us are shareholders.
