Festival Of The Stone

Stone & Wood are thrilled to announce the return of Festival of the Stone to their Byron-based Brewery, Saturday 5 June. As they say, it’s a neighbourhood party of epic proportions.

With live music, food trucks and tanks of fresh beer to hand, the family-friendly festival is set to welcome the winter months ahead and celebrate the amazing community the brewery calls home.

As part of Stone & Wood’s commitment to their role as local brewer, Festival of the Stone will be turning a spotlight on the incredible Northern Rivers community. With an all-local music lineup soon to be announced, all profits from the festival will go back into supporting the community via the inGrained Foundation, Stone & Wood’s charity organisation.

Rested in 2020 owing to COVID Public Health restrictions, Festival of the Stone began in 2014 with Stone Beer, Stone & Wood’s prized limited winter release, at the heart of the celebration. Back again this winter, Stone Beer 2021 is a wood-fired porter designed to warm your winter cockles.

The pride of the festival, Stone Beer will be on tap and flying out of their store in cartons and four packs, alongside all of your other Stone & Wood favourites, like Sunly Seltzers and new kid on the block, Little Dragon ginger beer.

Autumn on the Northern Rivers is the time for coming together, dancing and joy.
