Deliciously dark and packed with patisserie sweetness, It’d Be Rude Not To is a seriously naughty winter brew, with loads of lactose, maple syrup, vanilla beans and a hint of cinnamon. Coupled with a toasty malt backbone and balanced with Galaxy hops, you’d be forgiven for hiding this beer away for a #cheatday treat.
Brewed in Byron Bay, New South Wales, Australia
Born and raised in Byron Bay, we take a fresh approach to brewing handcrafted beer in the Northern Rivers of NSW, one of the greatest places on Earth.
We established Stone & Wood Brewing Company in 2008. The three boys - Brad, Jamie and Ross had spent many years working in the beer business. The dream was to quit ‘working for the man’, shed the corporate garbage and get back to basics.
As the original brewers of the Northern Rivers, we built our first brewery here at the eastern tip of Australia, in a part of the world where people enjoy having a beer when relaxing after catching a wave, catching a band at the pub or just catching up with friends. It’s that sort of place.
We brew beer for times like these. Beers that the locals, those passing through the town and the growing number of drinkers who appreciate good beer, and of course ourselves, would find simply good to drink.
In 2014, we opened our second brewery up the road in Murwillumbah to try and meet the growing demand for our beer. This is where we produce most of our beer with the Byron brewery being home to our pilot brewery, the birthplace of our limited releases and our tasting room, where you can drop in for a beer and a tour.
We love this part of the world… the beaches … the music … the lush green hinterland… the people … the pubs. These are just a few of the reasons why we brew and bottle our beer in one of the greatest places on earth. Byron and the region of the Northern Rivers has influenced everything we do at Stone & Wood.
Not only has it helped shape our philosophy of trying to take things slowly and keeping it simple, but the natural beauty, on the edge of the Pacific Ocean, and the laid back vibe were the inspiration for our beers.
For us, the way of living in this part of the world is the way it should be.
