Stone & Wood
Outgrowing their original digs, Stone & Wood have opened a stunning 1,160-metre-squared space in Byron’s Arts & Industry estate. The sprawling venue has a whopping 31 brewing tanks pumping out all their much-loved classics like the Pacific Ale as well as Stone & Wood’s experimental Pilot Batch beers and limited one-off beers. Grab one their takeaway ‘Sharer’ bottles which you can do with any of their limited-edition brews for just $20.
They’re also running not one but three daily brewery tours where for $25 you’ll learn about the history of Stone & Wood, see how their beer is made and (our favourite part) you’ll get a tasting paddle to sample the brews.
And because every good beer should be accompanied by an equally good meal, they’ve even opened up a canteen, run by 100 Mile Table, on site (open from 12pm to 3pm), serving up meals that are designed to complement their brews. Think delicious eats like Korean chicken butty, beef brisket massaman curry, chicken wings with sticky sauce and local cuttlefish fried in Green Coast Lager.
With plenty of seating inside and out, it's the perfect spot to spend the day.
