Our growth under threat, say local distillers

Stone & Wood are opening the gates to their Murwillumbah brewery with the return of their ‘Murbah Open Day’, on Saturday 6 August.

Welcoming the people of the Northern Rivers and surrounds to a day of great food, good music, brewery tours and, of course, the freshest beers in town. Running from 11am–5pm, Murbah Open Day is an event for the whole family.

For one day only, the festival will be flowing with an easy drinking Kolsch style ale; Murbah Session Beer, brewed especially for the festival and the good people of Murwillumbah. The Open Day will be your one chance to grab a glass of the good stuff this year. 

Entry to the day is by gold coin donation with all profits from the festival going towards Wedgetail Retreat.

Wedgetail Retreat provide free palliative care to the Northern Rivers community, giving locals and their families a warm and welcoming environment to call home. Operating without government funding, Wedgetail relies on the support of its community to keep its doors open and to continue with the amazing care they provide.

Details on the music and food lineup to come, so keep your eyes on the Stone & Wood socials for more information.
