SWX is a decadent 10% imperial stout, which was barrel aged for 10 months. It pours jet black with a chocolate head and features incredible depth of malt flavours and aromas of espresso, cocoa and dark fruits. The stout was matured in seasoned fortified wine barrels, which enhance the smooth, rich, flavours and aroma of oak while providing hints of cherries and chocolate. SWX is assertive and refined with a warming palate that is full-bodied but balanced by a firm bitterness.
Stone & Wood Brewing Company was established 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, they built their first brewery 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.

Stone and Wood acknowledge the reliance they have on their Earth to enable them to produce good beer which inspired them to start their Green Feet program. Green Feet is a company wide program they’ve been working on for a couple of years now. It’s about minimising their footprint on the Earth through striving to not only reduce, reuse and recycle but also exploring innovative practices by reimagining the ecology of brewing.
