Independent brewers Stone & Wood have revealed plans for their new $50 million Northern Rivers Brewery in Murwillumbah.

The 34,000 square metre site overlooks mighty Wollumbin (Mt Warning), and will eventually play home to a 200 hectolitre fully automated brewhouse that includes a visitor’s centre for locals and tourists to the region.

In attendance for the announcement was the Federal Member for Richmond, Justine Elliot MP, Tweed Shire Mayor, Chris Cherry, Deputy Mayor Tweed Shire, Cr Reece Byrnes and General Manager for the Tweed Shire Council, Troy Green.

The construction of the brewery is scheduled to take approximately two years and create new jobs for local construction and engineering teams as well as continue to provide roles for the Stone & Wood family that live and work in the Northern Rivers.

Landmark day

Co-Founder Ross Jurisich said, ‘Today was a landmark day in the life of Stone & Wood… we are excited by the prospect of unlocking brewing capacity that will continue to provide jobs in the Northern Rivers through the expansion of domestic distribution while expanding on our export aspirations.’

Alongside its increased fermentation capacity and warehousing space, the new brewery will also include a hi-tech waste-water treatment plant as part of Stone & Wood’s continued commitment for better environmental outcomes.
