Stone & Wood Brewing Company: good beer is our thing
Hailing from Byron Bay, Stone & Wood brews handcrafted beer. It’s a business that brings to life everything that is great about village breweries – a philosophy of connection with the local community – and reflects what a contemporary business should be.
‘Traditionally, a brewery didn’t just supply fresh beer to the locals, ’says James Perrin the company’s sustainability manager. ‘It could also be relied upon to help support the wider community.’
The think-local approach is a part of Stone & Wood’s core business ethos. The company aims to have more than half their beer sold within a three-hour drive of the brewery.
‘At Stone & Wood we are committed to taking care of the earth that we walk on,’ says James. ‘After all, this is the only planet with beer.’
