Big, bold and raspberry-rich, Counter Culture's Killer Kween pours a deep pink-rouge hue, the beer’s brightly coloured, hazy body – both thanks to the 1.2 tonnes of raspberries added – is matched with a fluffy white head that settles over time. Killer Kween is our contemporary take on a traditional Berliner Weisse. Unapologetically strong and now available. 7.6% ABV. Be quick, our Kween waits for no one.

Last year we teamed up with the legends at We're All Going To Die for the first ‘FEARS & BEERS’ installation in Byron Bay. The goal was to spark honest conversations that may be considered “taboo” or “weak”. You see we know the power of talking about our fears with friends and family. It’s a game changer. But a lot of people don’t feel they have the space to be vulnerable and share. That’s when it hit us...The pub! Having a yarn over a couple drinks is not revolutionary, but rather than chatting about sports and funny memes we challenged the pub crowd with questions around fear, life and death, printed on custom beer coasters. The response was incredible. We’re stoked to bring the installation to Melbourne’s festival this year at The Espy. The entries are already pouring in and the conversations (and beer) is flowing. Get down and submit your fear today! Stone & Wood prize packs up for grabs!

# Ratings: 241
Score: 3.94
All hail the Killer Kween... A contemporary take on a traditional Berliner Weisse, our Killer Kween is anything but subtle. Unapologetically strong and dripping with raspberry aromas and flavours from a secondary lactobacillus fermentation and maturation, this Imperial version balances assertive acidity with a refreshing finish. Bursting through the brewery gates, Killer Kween is the first limited release from Counter Culture - beers that go against the grain.

Score: 3.34
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.

Each year under the night sky, we honour the ancient technique of our brewing ancestors with the ritual of adding wood fired stones to our kettle to caramelise the brew. Brewed for when the days are short and the nights are cold, our 2018 Stone Beer is a decadently dark porter. With aromas and flavours of roast barley, hints of coffee and dark chocolate, this winter release finishes with a firm bitterness from the kettle hops and black malts.
Jasper Ale
Style: Red Ale - Other
ABV: 5.4%
IBUs: 15
# Ratings: 863
Score: 3.61
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
Sticky Nectar

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.

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.

This year saw a change in direction for the Byron brewers' annual stone beer. Sure, they still pulled out the same stones from Fiji and heated them in a wood fire on the driveway outside the brewery. And they still lifted them, when white hot, into a metal cage and lowered them into the brew to let them work their caramelising magic. But elsewhere, it was all change with an all new recipe that saw the beer become a much bigger affair. That it's a new beer is apparent from the moment it hits the glass: much darker and viscous than in previous years, a sight that heralds a multifarious malty mouthful. Toffee, chocolate, cocoa, cola, treacle - you name it and you'll get it as it makes its salubrious way from goblet to gullet.
