With nearly a decade at the Kite Crescent location, Stone & Wood brewery have purchased the Northern Rivers property and are planning a multimillion-dollar upgrade.

The expansion of the Murwillumbah site is expected to continue until late 2025 and is currently in the design stage. The brewery in Murwillumbah is not currently open to visitors, but Stone & Wood hope to open the tasting room and beer garden to the public in 2024.

Rich Crowe, Fermentum’s Supply Chain leader, expressed his excitement about the opportunity.

“Stone & Wood have put so much heart and soul into the Kite Crescent brewery over the past nine years, so we’re excited to announce we have now purchased the site, securing this as our home for the future and progressing its well-deserved upgrade,” Crowe said.

The expansion will also include a number of operational upgrades. Intending to improve efficiency and sustainability, these planned upgrades include CO2 collection, brewhouse energy recovery, further beer waste reduction and a larger water re-use water reticulation system.

“The current plans will not only see a great improvement in our safety, quality and sustainability measures, but also mean future jobs for the region, work for local suppliers through the design and construction phases and eventually a great space for the community to come together and share a glass,” Crowe continued.

All previously announced plans for the Honeyeater Circuit site, including the construction of a new brewery, have been put on hold.
