For thousands of years the Bundjalung people have known the sacred Mt Warning as Wollumbin, meaning Cloud Catcher, which remains a geographical icon and place of cultural significance for Aboriginal people, indeed Australia, and now the image that features on Stone & Wood’s Cloud Catcher Ale.
When Stone & Wood expanded its operations to an old Bunnings warehouse in Murwillumbah, the Cloud Catcher Ale was released to commemorate its opening and to lay tribute to the land and region which it brews.
Chocked with Galaxy and Ella hops, Cloud Catcher is one of those ales that will have you literally crying out for “…just one more!”. It is pleasantly bitter, a little fruity, and very crisp. Given everything about this beer beams Australia, it’s no surprise that this could possibly be the perfect beer for summer… There I said it!
So, for those of you who are totally in love with Stone & Wood’s Pacific Ale, I recommend you kick it up a notch (in AVB and taste) and grab a Cloud Catcher. For me, this brew is the next echelon to Pacific Ale. It is simply a lovely beer.
Hops: Galaxy , Ella
Colour: Light amber
Taste: Moderatley bitter and fruity!
Overall: A wonderful beer, perfect for summer!
