The second beer from the Stone & Wood side project, The Mash Collective, is out and about on taps and in bottles. It brought together an eclectic collection of people to create the beer, Aureus Chrysalis: a tattoo artist, musician, furniture maker, an engineer and a chef. The result is a Belgian Dubbel / Scotch Ale hybrid.


According to the team at Stone & Wood (who’ve also just brewed their annual Stone Beer, which you’ll be able to read about on Crafty soon), The Mash Collective is about “looking beyond the brewing industry for help, because we’re interested in the sort of spontaneous ideas that are born when people from different walks of life are thrown together.

“We chose this particular crew because they’re not only the best at what they do, but they each have a very unique approach to their chosen craft.

“The goal for TMC is to not just to create a beer with their help, it’s also driven by the idea that everyone – including ourselves – will return to their lives and their jobs inspired by the process, the people they’ve met and the experience they’ve shared.”

Among those taking part was Melbourne-based home brewer Richard Grant (taking control above – second from left), who has shared his experience creating Aureus Chrysalis with us…

How did you become part of the Mash Collective?

I entered a competition in last year’s Good Beer Week that was sponsored by Stone & Wood and held at the Courthouse Hotel in North Melboune. It was a dinner where the Courthouse food was matched to Stone & Wood beers and after the meal home brewers who had entered submitted their beers and offered them up for judgement by the people in attendance.


The people voted and the winner was the brewer whose beer had collected the most votes. I anticipated that most brewers would bring IPAs and so I brought my favourite Abbey Ale which is a big malty monster and it delivered.



Had you done anything like this before?

I’ve been a home brewer for 23 years and been on many brewery tours. I once helped Ralph Nischwitz and his team bottle one of their Heidi Alt beer batches at Mountain Goat but brewing 4,500 litres is a bit of a step up from 23 litres!
