A huge thank you to everyone that came to our Backyard Invitational last weekend and helped celebrate our 10th year in the beer industry. The good beer chat echoed throughout our Brisbane brewery as beer lovers enjoyed tasters of ales, lagers, porters, sours, stouts and many more from some of Australia’s best Indie breweries. Cheers to all of our friends that made the journey to Brisbane and to those in the neighbourhood, it was awesome to share a frothy and celebrate good Independent beer! Check out our wrap up video from the arvo. Looking forward to opening our brewery doors to the public in the New Year. #TheWayItShouldBe

Inspired by our home on the edge of the Pacific Ocean and brewed using all Australian barley, wheat and Galaxy hops, Pacific Ale is cloudy and golden with a big fruity aroma and a refreshing finish.

Influenced by the surrounding green hills that roll down to meet the Pacific Ocean, Green Coast is brewed with a blend of the finest malts and left unfiltered to create a beer that has a light amber colour with a natural yeast cloud, and a flavour that strikes a fine balance between its subtle hop aroma and full malt palate, finishing soft and clean.

Jasper Ale
Style: Red Ale - Other
ABV: 5.4%
IBUs: 15
# Ratings: 776
Score: 3.62
The unique brews from Beers From Our Backyard celebrate the landmarks of the Northern Rivers, so it only made sense for Jasper Ale to join the range. Inspired by the one street town called Federal, that is perched up in the hills, the land around this area of our backyard (once known as Jasper) is rich in volcanic soil that in some parts are the colour of the label and the beer. The tropical fruit aromas of our Northern Rivers backyard come from the generous additions of Galaxy, Enigma and Mosaic hops. These are balanced with a smooth and velvety mouthfeel from the selection of roasted malts that give hints of caramel, toffee and hazelnut, finishing with a firm bitterness. Malts: Carared, Caramunich 2, Munich and Carafa Hops: Galaxy, Enigma and Mosaic
Style: Stout - Imperial / Double
ABV: 10.0%
IBUs: 65

To commemorate ‘10 Years of Beers’ for Stone & Wood we wanted to brew something special to mark the occasion. SWX is a decadent 10% imperial stout, which was barrel aged for 10 months. SWX pours jet black with a chocolate head and features incredible depth of malt flavours and aromas of espresso, cocoa and dark fruits. The stout was matured in seasoned fortified wine barrels, which enhance the smooth, rich, flavours and aroma of oak while providing hints of cherries and chocolate. SWX is assertive and refined with a warming palate that is full-bodied but balanced by a firm bitterness. A spectacularly big, complex and delightful brew that celebrates our journey so far and the adventures yet to come.

2018 Barrel Aged Stone Beer Release (2017 brew)
Style: Porter - Other
ABV: 7.3%
# Ratings: 148
Score: 4.11
Brewed for when the days are short and the nights are cold, our winter seasonal honours the ancient techniques of brewing. Last year, we squirreled some of the 2017 Stone Beer into a handful of port and 2nd use whiskey barrels to age. After 12 months of soaking up the woody goodness, we’ve put the beer into 500ml stone crocks and some kegs. Dark and robust, barrel ageing this full bodied beer has added smooth and velvety chocolate and vanilla notes to the roasted caramel aroma and cocoa flavour. Let this special limited release warm you up sooner rather than later!
Red Sled
Style: Red Ale - Imperial / Double
ABV: 9.0%
IBUs: 72
# Ratings: 24
Score: 3.85
Red Sled is a 9.2% ABV Imperial Red Ale that is balanced by a hefty 80 IBU and has a dark copper hue. Showcasing some of the best hop varieties the USA has to offer. Massive additions of Simcoe and Mosaic hops provide hugely intense fruity and floral aromas, followed by malt flavours of toffee and caramel flavour, finishing with a firm bitterness.
Coffee Milk Stout
Style: Stout - Milk / Sweet
ABV: 5.7%
# Ratings: 19
Score: 3.96
Soothing hints of vanilla on the nose, this ale pours a dark and delicious black. We’ve added a kilo of coarsely ground coffee beans and let the flavour slowly release through the beer on a week-long chill. Earthy roasted-chocolate flavours coming through from the malt balance the smooth delicate palate. This chilled out stout is as sweet as mothers’ milk.
Pilot Batch - Hefeweizen
Style: Hefeweizen
ABV: 5.0%
# Ratings: 14
Score: 3.73
A thick and fluffy off-white head sits atop our light-gold classic German style ale. Gorgeous familiar phenolic weizen yeast notes on the nose lend us aromas of banana, bubble gum, clove and white pepper. Earthy, spicy and full-bodied, this wheat beer is easy-drinking and finishes light with a low bitterness.
Rauchbier Marzen
Style: Märzen
ABV: 5.4%
# Ratings: 13
Score: 3.71
Our Marzen is an elegant example of the German lager style. Amber to deep orange in appearance, with a blend of biscuit and smoked bacon aromas from the rauch malt following through on the palate. This soft, savoury brew finishes slightly sweet and dry. A perfect beer to be paired with BBQ meats.
Style: Dunkelweizen
ABV: 5.5%
# Ratings: 11
Score: 3.75
Similar to a Hefeweizen, our Dunkelweizen ('Dunkel' meaning dark) has a hazy and rich amber appearance yet offers the same distinct phenolic aromas of clove and banana. On the palate, the wheat and munich malt base softens the flavour by offering hints of toffee and slight hazelnut. Finishing smooth and dry.

Zeke's Fruit Box
Style: IPA - American
ABV: 7.2%
# Ratings: 6
Score: 0.00
The last beer Zeke brewed during his residence in Byron is a fruity, zesty IPA bursting with citrus flavours and aromas thanks to generous additions of orange zest and Amarillo hops. Along with these two, passionfruit pulp was added to the fermenter during the late stages of ferment, which in glass is evident on the front of the palate. This hazy, juicy fruit bomb is fresh, delicious and a wrapped up in a zesty finish…It won’t last long!
Le Petit Biere
Style: Table Beer
ABV: 2.9%
# Ratings: 4
Score: 0.00
Despite its name, besides the ABV, there is nothing small about this beer. With bold additions of orange peel and coriander seed resting within a diverse mixture of brett, lactobacillus and Belgian yeast this “Small Beer” is perfect for long sesh’s on the beach. It’s crisp bite and refreshing finish has been brought to light by a generous late in ferment hop addition of Citra that has paired beautifully with earlier orange and coriander seed. Appearing as a dark golden straw hue Le Petite sits in glass highly carbonated and brisk, all adding to its overall refreshing finish and crisp bite.
Mussel Beach Blonde
Style: Blonde Ale - Belgian Blonde / Golden
ABV: 6.3%
# Ratings: 4
Score: 0.00
Our Belgian Blonde is a flavourful morsel which pours straw gold in colour and with a thick, creamy, off-white head. This medium-bodied typically yeast-driven wheat beer is offset by the additions of fresh local mussels, kaffir lime and bundles of lemongrass. Floral and fragrant on the nose, silky on the palette, and finishing slightly salty, crisp, zesty and refreshing, this distinct ale will be snapped up quickly.
You Bruty!
Style: IPA - Brut
ABV: 6.5%
IBUs: 30
# Ratings: 0
Score: 0.00
As the days get warmer in the Northern Rivers, the need for a big, tropical ale becomes apparent. Our Brut IPA was fermented with champagne yeast and enzymes, resulting in a beer with a delightful straw to golden, hazy appearance, carrying delightful flavours of pine and citrus thanks to generous additions of simcoe, mosaic and citra hops, finishing with a satisfying dry finish. Available for a limited time only in the tasting room!
