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.
