Stone & Wood has unveiled Cloud Catcher, a short run beer that celebrates the brewer's journey to opening its new Murwillumbah facility.
The company's staff – which will soon number 35 – had input into the beer, named in honour of local landmark Mount Warning, which is visible from the new brewery.
The mountain's indigenous name is 'Wollumbin', meaning Cloud Catcher.
"Casting its gaze over the green rolling valleys of the Northern Rivers and out towards the Pacific's blue horizon, this mountain is a symbol of our connection to this region," Stone & Wood said. [continues below]

Coming in at 5.5 per cent ABV and 40 IBU, Cloud Catcher is a full flavoured ale hopped with all Australian Galaxy and Ella hops, balanced with a generous crystal malt backbone.
It is available in kegs and 500ml bottles that will be distributed to Stone & Wood's key accounts.
