Stone & Wood Brisbane
Further cementing Brisbane’s status as the craft-beer capital of Australia, Stone & Wood opened its own Sunshine State brewery and tap room in Fortitude Valley in November 2019. After expanding its brewery operation in Byron Bay, the crew decided to deliver a quintessential Stone & Wood experience to its closest northern neighbour securing a spot in the Trails Ltd Ice & Cold Stores building on Bridge Street. The brewery provides a home for the company’s Brisbane-based team and houses a small brewing operation, consisting of an eight-hectolitre brewhouse, five fermenters and three serving tanks. This gear is used to produce and pour a range of small-batch beers exclusively for the Brisbane venue through the tap room’s 24 taps, as well as Stone & Wood’s core range and some rare drops for its pilot brewery. The building also houses areas for beer training (or ‘beerification’), masterclasses, a private function area for 100 people, merch displays and an on-site canteen, the latter of which will feature a rotating selection of local food vendors.
