Beer fundraiser for wildlife rehab and RFS

Resident Byron brewer Tina Jarrett brewing Stone & Wood’s Resilience Beer

Alongside more than 200 breweries around Australia and the world, local brewer Stone & Wood are thrilled to have joined the Resilience Beer initiative to help raise funds for bushfire relief across NSW, Queensland and Victoria.

All participating breweries have brewed a Resilience Beer –
five per cent pale ale – using the same recipe, to sell in their tap rooms or partnering venues to fundraise for local bushfire recovery in their regions.

Stone & Wood’s participation in the program is just part of their overall bushfire support program that saw the brewery, alongside Fixation Brewing and Granite Belt Cider Co., donate and pledge over $71,000 to fire brigades, rural fire services and drought relief across NSW, Queensland and Victoria.

Funds raised from our local contribution to Resilience Beer will be directed to wildlife rescue and rehabilitation in fire-affected areas across the country. Stone & Wood are inviting locals to join them for a Resilience Beer at their Byron Tasting Room, Friday
28 February, at 4pm.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
