Our cool local brewer Stone & Wood host an annual Festival of the Stone that has become quite the event, and this year you’re invited. But be quick.
Come along and kick back as the sun sets and the beer flows. Enjoy live music and food-truck cuisine with your friends and family at the annual event that celebrates the release of their dark winter seasonal Stone Beer.
The first kegs of 2018 Stone Beer will be tapped and available until the tap runs dry. Brewed eight weeks ago, the beer honours the ancient techniques of brewing. By adding wood-fired stones (ie stones heated on a wood fire) to the kettle (big pot with beer-making ingredients) to rouse the boil, the malt characters are intensified. That contributes to the beer’s roasted caramel aroma that’s balanced with a warming, full-bodied cocoa flavour… a good beer for winter!
All profits from this event go to the not-for-profit Ingrained Foundation, set up by Stone & Wood to donate to worthy causes, for example Big Scrub Landcare, who say, ‘It is simply fantastic that we are able to partner with Stone & Wood for the Festival of the Stone. We are so proud of the work the team do to help our charity.’
Tickets are $30 via Eventbrite (tip: last year there were none available at the door!) and transport to and from the brewery will be available. To guarantee your alert for ticket pre-sale, make sure you sign up at www.festivalofthestone.com.
