Sunday 11 June from 4-10pm you can join Stone & Wood for a night that celebrates community, live music and the release of their 2017Stone Beer while raising money for Liberation Larder and Bay FM.
Yes, the Festival of the Stone on the Sunday of the Queen’s Birthday long weekend at their brewery in Byron Bay.
They invite the locals and visitors to come along and kick back as the sun sets and the music pumps, with your friends and family at the annual event that celebrates the release of their dark Winter seasonal ‘Stone Beer’.
Rock band Kingswood will headline the night, alongside Polish Club, MT Warning, Your Mates DJ and, described as a ‘favourite among kids young and old’, Bunny Racket.
There’s a line up of food trucks designed to keep the slow food crowd stoked
and the vegos feeling full and nourished, including JR’s Smokehouse, Baylato, Pizza Loca, Pearl of the Quarter, The Backyard Chef and more.
To wash it all down, Stone & Wood will be pouring their beers, including the first kegs of 2017 Stone Beer. The beer honours the ancient techniques of brewing. By adding wood-fired stones to the kettle to rouse the boil, the malt characters are intensified, which contributes to the beer’s roasted caramel aroma that’s balanced with a warming, full bodied cocoa flavour.
All profits from the beer sales and tickets will go directly to Liberation Larder and Bay FM through Stone & Wood’s Ingrained Community Program. Last year the event raised over $11k for the Northern Rivers Community Foundation, Bay FM and Clean Coast Collective and this year, Stone & Wood is hoping to be able to donate a similar amount.
There will be a kids’ area and everyone’s encouraged to have a dance alongside the children when Bunny Racket kicks off their set.
