Stone & Wood opens new Byron Bay brewery to summer crowds

You are here

Since opening in mid-December, Stone & Wood’s brewery has served over 12,000 beer paddles to thirsty Northern Rivers locals and Byron Bay visitors alike.

Visitors can now enjoy beer tastings, brewery tours and a bite to eat at the brewery’s recently opened, new brewery in the Arts & Industrial estate. 

After 12 months of construction, the local independent brewery has opened its brewery doors to welcome patrons to the 1,160-metre-squared brewery complete with 31 brewing tanks, a canteen, tasting room and plenty of space to hang out, catch up and enjoy a tasting paddle. 

Tasting room manager Cale Watts said the new space is for people to experience Stone & Wood’s spiritual home. 

“The purpose-built brewery brings everything back under one roof – the brewery, tasting room and office space for our team”, Mr Watts said. “We want people to feel like they can drop in, slow down and relax over a beer, and be a part of it all. Whether it’s for a tour, a tasting or a bite to eat, it is an inclusive, family friendly space dedicated to beer education.”

Besides hopping on one of the three daily tours, visitors can taste Stone & Wood’s core range of ‘year-round’ beers, a rotating range of experimental Pilot Batch beers and limited one-off beers from Stone & Wood’s Counter Culture range, launching mid-March. 

Over the past five years, Stone & Wood has raised over $750,000 through its Community Program. With a dollar from each paddle now additionally going to their not-for-profit inGrained Foundation, they’re excited by the potential of what these funds can do for their community. 

The new brewery’s opening lined up with Stone & Wood’s 10-year anniversary, for which they launched their flagship beer, Pacific Ale, in cans for the first time. Additionally, once the office spaces are complete in March, the building will bring together employees from all different departments – from brewing and tours, to finance and marketing – under the one roof.  

The Stone & Wood Tasting Room team welcome locals and visitors to the Byron Bay brewery at 100 Centennial Circuit between 10.00am and 5.00pm Monday to Friday, and 12.00pm to 6.00pm Saturday and Sunday.
