It is currently bubbling away in the tank, it tastes like beer, there’s not much of it and it’s going to be available soon: it’s Stone & Wood’s exclusive Pilot Batch beer for the upcoming Byron Bay Surf Festival, 22–25 February.
Following the success of last year’s festival, the local independent brewery is proud to be supporting local surf culture and the event for the second time in 2018. For the brewery, the festival brings together like-minded people who share a love and respect for the ocean, the local area and the community, something that resonates strongly for the Stone & Wood team and the company’s values.
Stone & Wood’s Byron Bay Surf Festival beer was made for enjoying on a hot summer’s day after catching waves, hanging on the beach or at The Beachy.
The exclusive festival beer was named by Byron Bay Surf Festival directors… Palm Valley Ale pays homage to the natural beauty of The Pass and surrounding region.
The Palm Valley Ale is a wheat beer brewed with summer ingredients, including cucumber, mint and watermelon. It is crisp and dry with a lip-puckering finish.
Each night a keg of the Palm Valley Ale will be tapped at the Stone & Wood Pop-Up Bar in The Beachy’s beergarden for 5pm Happy Hour. There are limited kegs of the exclusive festival beer and it may never be brewed again, so if you’re keen to try this brew, be sure to drop by the Beachy for epic live tunes and a few cold Palm Valley Ales
Stone & Wood will also be supporting a number of the Byron Bay Surf Festival events including: the beach cleanup, the Surf Art Markets, various exhibitions, and premiering their latest short film at the Sunset Cinema.
