Stone & Wood kicks off Forefathers series

August 24, 2015

Forefathers500mlBottleThere are pioneers among us who have paved the way towards today’s burgeoning beer industry. This annual limited release is a tribute to these forefathers…

For our first release, we had Phil Sexton and his son Harry join us in Byron to brew a beer that he loves.

As an Entrepreneur, brewer and co-founder of keystone breweries Matilda Bay and Little Creatures, Phil Sexton is a trail blazer. Influenced by his time spent in the UK and US, Phil Sexton was instrumental in leading Australia into a beer revolution.

From years spent brewing abroad, Phil loves his dry English brown ales. Combining the finest Maris Otter Pale English malt with select crystal and caramel varieties for a rich and dry nutty backbone, and backed up by a generous but refined bitterness and hop character that hints of cinnamon, spice and blackcurrant, the Forefathers English Brown Ale is a testament to the style and the man who inspired it.

Hops: Challenger, Bramling Cross, East Kent Goldings
Malt: Maris Otter, Imperial Caramalt, Crystal Malt
IBU: firm
ALC.VOL: 4.8%

The beer will be available across the country starting next week in bottles and in kegs.
