Stone & Wood opens its Murwillumbah brewery gates for a community fundraiser…

Local independent brewery, Stone & Wood will host an Open Day at their Murwillumbah site, Saturday 14 April to raise funds for the Wedgetail Retreat Community Hospice and Tweed Palliative Support.

The family friendly event will run from 11-5 at their Murwillumbah brewery, located at 35 Kite Crescent, and will welcome the local and wider Northern Rivers community to come and enjoy:

  • Brewery tours running every ½ hour to show the brewing process, their sustainability initiatives and tell their story
  • Local food trucks, JR Smokehouse and Juju’s
  • Local art and market stalls including Murwillumbah Farmer’s Market, Mad Mountain Farm,Ttropical Fruit World, Boomerang Bags and Bee Folk
  • Cold, fresh beers straight from the source, a coffee cart, soda and water refill station
  • Malt Disney, a kid’s entertainment area with jumping castle, crafts, entertainment by Captain Jack and face painting
  • Live local music from special guests

After the success of last year, Stone & Wood have once again brewed their tribute ‘Murbah Swamp Beer’, which pays homage to a legendary local tale of a semi-trailer carrying pallets of beer, that ran off the Pacific Highway in 2001. The locals wasted no time in diving in to salvage what they could so that the beer wouldn’t go to waste! The beer will be released and tapped exclusively at Open Day.

Stone & Wood will also be operating their cup exchange initiative, #forcupssake, eliminating single use cups from their events! All beers will be poured in their re-useable cups. They can be exchanged for a fresh cup of beer, refunded on exit or kept as a momento from the Open Day.

Beers will be $6 and there is a gold coin entry fee, with all profits raised from the Open Day event donated to the Wedgetail Retreat.

Join the Wedgetail Retreat and Tweed Palliative Support at the local brewery Stone & Wood’s Open Day on 14 April, to come together to connect with your community, learn more about local business and raise money for charity.
