Beer review — Stone & Wood

Stone & Wood Pale Lager 330ml $3.90
Brad Rogers and the team at Wood & Stone, Byron Bay, hit all the right notes with this juicy, pale-lemon-coloured lager. It’s ultra fresh, has a smooth, pure, malty richness belying the light colour and complex, harmonious hops aroma, flavour and bitterness.

Stone & Wood Ale 500ml $8.00
We mover from Wood & Stone’s easy-drinking lager, to an altogether more assertive beast – an opulent, dark-mahogany-coloured ale, laden with sweet, intense toffee-like aromas and flavours. These come from wood-fired stones added to the kettle to “rouse the boil and caramelise the brew”.
