$20 off Beer @ Stone & Wood - e.g. Pacific Ale 24 x 330ml Bottles $49.95 + Delivery (Free Delivery on Orders over $99)

1960
$20SHOUT

Lowest price ever and I'm hoping as it's delivered directly from the manufacturer it'll be the freshest ever as well.

This beer won number one in the GAB hottest 100 craft beer comp again. (https://www.gabsfestival.com/h100-2019-aus-main-list)

I signed up to tbe mailing list and got this code for $20 off a case of beer which I assume is generic and it should work with the other offerings as well. If it doesn't work perhaps sign up to the mailing list first.

Delivery was 8 dollars for metro melb. This may change for other locations. But it is free for purchases of $99 or more.

Overall a great deal seeing as though a case goes for $75.99 at Dan's.

Also 2 dollars per case goes to bushfire relief

    lot of hype but just bit over average YMMV

      Agree it used to taste amazing and I don't know if it's my palate changing but it doesn't have the same taste as it used to. They're now a large scale brewer charging microbrewery prices however at this price I grabbed a case.

      Was also tempted on the gatherer for something a bit different

          making beer is an industrial process as hops and other ingredients are “ bought in”, so scales to any quantity you want if you have the equipment.
          Unlike wine where the limitation of the amount you can make at the “ boutique / craft” level is limited by the vineyard size , location and seasonal variation, or as the say “ terroir”.

          nothing wrong with the big brewers, they make lots of different beers and position them at price points …..furphy is usually $47 slab, little creatures is usually $56 since lion bought them .. lion just buy the micro brewer, scale it and bring down prices to move volume. problem for the big brewers like asahi, lion, heineken, etc is making their sub brand feel “craft” so people pay more for it, and where to price it to move the volume, without cheapening the brand and loosing customer who want to feel special when they buy a craft beer. krispy kreme used to be at their outlets exclusively and people used to line up , now they are at 7/11 and people don’t line up anymore.

          sure there are experts that claim how a beer should taste but that is subjective and personal ….. l like hoppy beers some people don’t ….it’s is why pubs keep several different one on tap and outlets keep so many different ones on the shelf.

          • +7 votes

            @garage sale: This is true, but the big brewers seek to maximise profit by limiting costly ingredients (like imported hops) and tweaking the recipe to improve production (less time in different stages, for example).
            These things make a difference on a huge scale if it cuts costs a few percent, and the micro brewers seeking the best tasting product aren’t as motivated by saving a few cents per bottle.

            So yes, it is possible for the industrial brewers to make it just as well, but they don’t.

          Woah. Don't lump Stone and Wood into the same category as those 2.

          Mountain Goat sold out to Asahi. Only their seasonals are worth considering. Their standard line is now trash.
          Young Henry's farmed out a lot of their line to Beer Farm - they mass produce very average beer for very cheap prices into YH's branding.

          Stone and Wood is still independent, fully in control of their brewing processes, actively involved in the craft beer community, engages with and employs many brewers and homebrewers through various programs, and make a very decent gateway beer. It's the beer of choice I've used to convert mates off CUB.

            @zeggie: Mountain Goat's core range is no better or worse than it's ever been. The special releases are as good, or better, as they've always been.

            Young Henry's range is mediocre, but then again, it always has been.

            • +2 votes

              @prhino: Disagree. Mountain Goat was one of the original big "little" independent craft breweries. Back when the scene was next to non-existent in Melbourne. Their steam ale was approachable by all and the hightail ale was a great darker beer when there were little to no craft alternatives locally.

              Their original seasonal surefoot stout was excellent. It's a pathetic shadow of it's former self now and is just a bland black lager tasting ale.

              Don't get me wrong. I don't begrudge them for selling out. They worked hard for 10-15 years and built the place up and cashed in their chips for their families future. Good on em.

              • +1 vote

                @zeggie: @zeggie I know it was one of the originals, and I used to drink Hightail regularly (I never liked their Stream Ale). I don't think Hightail has gotten any worse. It's more that the general standard of Australian craft beer has improved exponentially in recent years.

                •  

                  @prhino: I 100% believe Mountain Goat took a dive. Nothing to do with what other beers have become available. I used to drink fancy pants regularly but then it changed in taste majorly. I tried it again and again but it has never been the same.

              •  

                @zeggie: Hightail ale is watered down crap these days :(

        Your palate will change fast, especially if you drink a lot of hoppy beers. Also, beer is pretty much an agricultural product and hops can change in characteristics from field to field, let alone season to season. This is a very hop flavour driven beer.

      • +2 votes

        Pacific ale did change, it's not your palate. The head brewer left and Pac ale was never the same. IMHO cloud catcher is closer to the original Pac ale if not actually is the old Pac ale.

        • +1 vote

          That makes sense as to why things changed. The first release of Cloud Catcher changed and must of been due to this.

        Same here. I used to love them but I like hoppy beer these days. I think my palate has been changed.

      Got an email not long after I placed successful order with $20 off code and they sent another code ( same $20shout ) to use again.

        what is your pick for best ever that's available today?

        • +1 vote

          That's like saying "what's your favourite movie?".

          Different beers take the cake in different categories in the broadest sense, but some are just good for different things. Do you want something sessionable? Do you want something that pairs well with salty foods? Fatty foods? Do you want something richer for a cold day or thinner for a hot day?

          I think Balter xpa or Feral's hop hog/biggie shits all over S&W, and they aren't even the best by a long shot. I really like panhead's XPA, but then again, I'm a sucker for mosaic as a hop and one of my first homebrews was a mosaic/galaxy/citra combo, so it's got a nostalgic feel to it.

          Currently, I'm really enjoying the range of NEIPAs Dainton's are releasing with their peach and blood orange ones having an amazing rich and "thick" texture to them. But on a hot day, a Colonial sour is a great thirst quencher, even if it isn't the most complex sour on the market.

          TLDR: There's no such thing as the best, but you can usually safely point out ones that aren't the best.

            @Sinthesys: Panhead's are decent, I like the APA myself, unfortunately, it's brewed under license here now and don't seem as nice as what I remember drinking in NZ. Recommend Seven Mile and Bentspoke too.

  • +6 votes

    Ordered a carton of bottles and cans, which gets the free shipping over $99… Seems shipping is $8 to most east coast locations, so;

    Just ordering bottles @ $49.95 +$8 = $7.32 per Litre, total 7.92L
    Just ordering cans* @ $34.50 +$8 = $7.08 per Litre, total 6L
    Bottles and cans @ $104.45 = $7.50 per Litre, total 13.92L

    • Assuming code works for 16 pack of cans

    It is less of a deal to by more, but will be better for people whose shipping costs are $15.
    Enjoy!

  • +7 votes

    If anybody prefers cans as fridge fillers (they stack better for me, stay fresh longer, and are only slightly more expensive - 110mLs/$ for cans as compared to 113mLs/$ in bottles), I grabbed two cases of cans and used the code. Drops back to $89 for 32 cans, and I still got free shipping as original total was $110.

  •  

    Had this on tap at a bar and also at a beer trade show. Not sure what's the fuss is all about. /shrug

  •  

    32 cans for $89 with free delivery is a great price for this beer. As others have said, I've got a sneaking suspicion S&W isn't quite as good as it used to be, though I honestly can't tell if the quality has gone down a bit or if the quality of the other craftys has gone up. Still a spectacular beer tho, and for $2.80 a tinny delivered you're laughing! Thanks OP.

  •  

    I quite like the lager which works out to $39.95 plus shipping. Good deal

  •  

    Thanks good deal, the 16pk of Jasper works out cheaper $/L and been wanting to try for a while. $42.50 per case incl $8 delivery to Brisbane. Code field is on very last payment page during checkout and I didn't need to be logged in or subscribed to newsletter. My partner ordered a case too

    I think this is a decent beer, but in this style/bracket, I prefer the Bridge Road Beechworth Pale Ale (No.6 on that list).

    •  

      Not really in the style/bracket is it? Beechworth Pale ale is fantastic. one of my favourites.

      •  

        Not really in the style/bracket is it?

        In what sense?

        Style: Pacific Ale is a pale ale (pacific ale, or Australian pale ale, is just a specific subset of pale ale). And they are both fruity style pale ales (and passionfruit in particular) - I think they are actually quite similar beers!

        Bracket: Both are relatively large scale and mainstream (in the sense of widely-available) craft brewers - they're both very much on the more commercial end of craft beer. And price bracket: Beechworth Pale $76.99 per case, Pacific Ale $75.99 per case (standard prices in Dan's). (Also: Last slab of Beechworth I got was for $16 a sixer, so $64 for a slab - that's close enough to this, after delivery!) :)

        I think they are very much in the same style and bracket! (From my perspective, at least!) :)

      I misread the title and thought I could get 2 delivered for $100. $8 more a
      slab is still great but it’s taken the shine off it so can’t bring myself to buy.

      Might have something to do with the Pasito beer comment above too. I think it’s ruined it for me.
