A tour of my favourite brewery – Stone & Wood – now that is heaven!6

December 12, 2020 Beverage No Comments

It is impossible to imagine a better way of spending holiday time than combining travel [with a designated driver of course]

with drinking Australia’s best independent beer and visiting where they make it, with the Stone & Wood Brewery & Tasting Room in Byron Bay open for business this summer, with the team behind this family-owned business gearing up to pour thousands of litres of their locally brewed beers.

Opened in December 2018, Stone & Wood’s Tasting Room in Byron’s Arts & Industrial Estate is a spacious 1,160-metre-square steel-and-timber complex that combines a working brewery alongside a spacious bar and beer garden, complete with 31 brewing tanks and a canteen run by their friends at 100 Mile Table. The Tasting Room crew have served over 89,000 paddles of beer in two years.

Born and raised in Byron Bay, Stone & Wood is proudly independent, meaning it operates as a family- and Australian-owned business that can pursue its own vision and contribute to the local economy, jobs and communities.

Here, visitors can book a tour of the brewery or simply kick back in the award-winning designed Tasting Room and beer garden whilst enjoying a range of beers – from the crisp Green Coast Lager to the stone fruit flavours of Cloud Catcher pale ale –­­ or sample their way through the rotating series of one-off Pilot Batch beers and limited releases from its weird and wonderful Counter Culture series.

Focussed on beer education, Stone & Wood runs guided brewery tours and tastings (60-90 minutes) to give visitors a behind-the-scenes look at Stone & Wood’s approach to brewing and conscious business.

Inspired by the idea of the ‘village brewery’, every month the Stone & Wood Tasting Room fundraises for a local grassroots charity chosen by the team, donating $1 per litre of beer sold over the bar via its not-for-profit, the inGrained Foundation. In September, the Tasting Room raised $10,000 for beach clean-up group Clean Coast Collective, and in October raised $8,460 for Bruns Brekkie, a not-for-profit serving breakfast for locals in need.


You don’t need to be a beer expert to enjoy a brewery tour, with the guided tour and tasting fun and educational for everyone, as long as you’re over 18.

Group numbers are limited to 12 people for an intimate experience.

Tours begin with a fresh beer, followed by a sit-down with one of the knowledgeable Stone & Wood crew members, who’ll you through the history of beer, its ingredients, the Stone & Wood story and commitment to running a sustainable and conscious business.

Brewery tour and tasting is $35 per person and takes between 60 and 90 minutes!  I wonder why??


Monday – Thursday: 10am – 5pm

Friday: 10am – 7pm

Saturday – Sunday: 12pm – 6pm
