OVER 20 INDEPENDENT AUSTRALIAN BREWERIES COME TOGETHER IN BURLEIGH TO RAISE THE INDUSTRY BAR

Stone & Wood, Balter, Black Hops and Burleigh Brewing will be joined by 19 independent Australian breweries and distillers for the Backyard Invitational Gold Coast on Saturday 17 August, an all-inclusive beer festival and charity fundraiser open to the community. 

Held at the Surfstitch Warehouse in Burleigh Waters, Stone & Wood’s Backyard Invitational Gold Coast invites over 20 independent breweries, two distilleries and a local kombucha to share their products and connect with drinkers, with intimate tasting stands, industry talks and masterclasses. 

Alongside the breweries, including local farmhouse brewers Currumbin Valley Brewing, Kaiju! Beer from Victoria and Capital Brewing Co. from Canberra, there’ll be food trucks and live music throughout the day.  

Spread across two sessions (12–3.30pm; 4.30–8pm), tickets to the Backyard Invitational Gold Coast include entry to the festival, all beer, access to talks and masterclasses, a take-home beer cup and a $5 food truck voucher.

Profits from the Backyard Invitational will be directed to a Gold Coast charity via Stone & Wood’s national not-for-profit, the inGrained Foundation. 

The inaugural Backyard Invitational held at Stone & Wood’s Brisbane brewery site, opening later this year, helped raise $3,800 for Brisbane community radio station 4ZZZ last November.

Tickets for the Backyard Invitational Gold Coast are $60 each plus booking fee, available from Thursday 11 July for purchase at www.stoneandwood.com.au.  

Byron Bay’s markets to be temporarily relocated

Byron Bay’s popular monthly community market and the weekly farmers market are to be temporarily relocated for six months while the Byron bypass is being constructed.

Byron Community markets move to the beachfront from 4 August 2019.

Byron Farmers markets move to the Cavanbah Centre starting 11 July 2019.

Locals and visitors who love the markets are urged to continue the great tradition of their monthly poke around artisan stalls or doing their weekly shop and buying amazing produce.

“Our markets are great cultural icons of our community and amazing economic incubators and all Councillors are strong supporters of the markets and the fabulous  businesses that trade there,” Byron Shire Mayor, Simon Richardson, said.

The operators of both markets have been working closely with Council for months, trying to find alternative sites for the markets.

“Staff and market operators have gone through an exhaustive process to find temporary sites, on either Council-managed or private land, that will accommodate stall holders and visitors and the beachfront and Cavanbah Centre are seen to be the most viable venues available,” Mayor Richardson said.

“Certainly there are constraints with the beachfront location for the community market with traffic a key consideration and this is one thing we will be monitoring closely.

“Similarly there are aspects of the Cavanbah Centre that aren’t perfect for the farmers market including the move away from the town centre.

“But when you balance the constraints with cancellation of the markets for six months this is the best option.

“Market stalls are businesses providing regular incomes for people and families, many of them locals, and to cancel the markets would have a huge impact on their livelihoods.

“Change is difficult for people but this is only short-term so I am hoping that local residents and regular market goers will make a conscious decision to continue to support the markets, and the stall holders, as they have done for years,” Mayor Richardson said.

”Keep supporting, keep loving our markets and keep the tradition of a great experience alive,” he said.

The markets will move back to the Butler Street Reserve in February 2020.

Stone & Wood’s 2019 Festival of the Stone

FESTIVAL OF THE STONE TO TAKEOVER STONE & WOOD’S NEW BREWERY ON JUNE LONG WEEKEND

As the first-ever event inside the space, Festival of the Stone 2019 will take over Stone & Wood’s new brewery in Byron Bay on Saturday 8 June from 3.00pm til 10.00pm with live bands, food trucks and fresh beer. 

As part of the independent brewery’s biggest annual beer and music festival fundraiser, Stone & Wood is soon to reveal an exciting music line-up, with bands like Kingswood, Polish Club, Last Dinosaurs and Tropical Zombie playing at past events. 

Opened in December 2018 with a greater capacity than the former brewery, the new Stone & Wood brewery and Tasting Room will accommodate the biggest Festival of the Stone to date, with food trucks, their Malt Disney kids’ area and beers pouring from their dedicated beer truck and Troopie, Clyde and Trevor. 

The Music

Melbourne-based songwriter Alex Lahey played an epic gig at last year’s Splendour in the Grass following her triple j Unearthed success, while her album I Love You Like A Brotherlanded on several ‘albums of the year’ lists around the country. Energetic, super fun and with a new album, The Best of Luck Club, under her belt, we’re stoked to welcome Alex to Festival of the Stone!

With her ethereal voice and funky neo-jazz electronica, artist and producer Alice Ivy has supported major international acts including Foster the People, Billie Eilish and Flight Facilities, and has performed at our favourite festivals around the country, including Splendour in the Grass and Falls Festival. Her dreamy tracks will set the ultimate backdrop to a starry festival night.

Local favourite soul queen Lisa Hunt – who’s worked with the likes of Ray Charles, Eric Clapton, Tina Arena and Macy Gray – will also light up the stage with her soaring vocals and funk and soul tracks. Once a closing act for Byron Bay Bluesfest, Lisa makes light work of pulling people onto the floor.

Also on the line-up is the 28-man ‘Russian’ choir from Mullumbimby, Dustyesky, who came together as a group with a love of vodka and Russian folk music, and later became a national Russian news story. Meanwhile, besides a few live DJs, there’ll be rock n’ roll for the young ones with the head-banging Bunny Racket.

Besides the music, we’ll have beer pouring from our beer truck Clyde and Troopie Trevor, food trucks Gunter’s Flammkuchen, Pocket Curries, Spice Pirate BBQ and Zicatela serving up delicious meals and our dedicated kids area Malt Disney complete with entertainment from Spaghetti Circus.
 

A family-friendly community event, last year the Festival raised $17,000 for Stone & Wood’s national not-for-profit the inGrained Foundation, which it donated to Northern Rivers-based Big Scrub Landcare. This year, all event profits will again go to the inGrained Foundation for donation to a local charity, yet to be announced. 

General tickets go on sale Thursday 16 May at 9.00am ($45 +BF) through Eventbrite, which includes a tasting of Stone & Wood’s seasonal limited Stone Beer. Ticket sales contribute to the donation amount for the chosen local charity.

For Festival of the Stone news and updates, readers are encouraged to visit www.stoneandwood.com.au and check Stone & Wood’s socials
