There are a few monthly beer clubs now in Australia. But when choosing a monthly beer club, its important to know that the Beer Of The Month Club was the original Beer Of The Month Club in Australia and through popularity grew in to other monthly clubs.

“We select craft beers from micro breweries around Australia and the world for our monthly beer club members,” said Rob from the Beer Of The Month Club.

Monthly beer clubs started overseas and in 2013 an Australian e commerce company bought the Beer Of The Month Club to Australia.

“It started with one monthly subscription club and quickly evolved in to other popular monthly clubs.”

Monthly beer club selections are sent to Melbourne members who subscribe, Sydney members, Brisbane members and other members around Australia.

Have You Tried a Boc Beer?

Boc beer is a rich, complex and malty style of lager.

“But dont think all Dark Boc beers are the same,” says Nathan aka manager at Buckleys Beer, “because there are many varieties which can be different in taste but never boring.”

Monasteries were known for brewing stronger beers for sustenance during their Lenten fasts which is the reason many Boc beer experts say Boc beer originated from this. However others say Boc beer is a Pagan or old world influence at a time when it was only brewed during the sign of the Capricorn goat (the reason why goat symbols are often associated with Boc beer) and was seen as a  symbol of hope and better times to come when nearing the end of winter.

In brewing terms a Boc beer generally takes months of lagering in cold storage to smooth out the strong ingredients. And is generally brewed with stronger ingredients than the majority of lagers with a distinctive dark amber to brown hue robust malt flavour. In addition Boc beer is only lightly hopped in the brewing process to avoid over balancing a hoppy bitterness with the desired malt flavour.

All in all we really enjoyed the Buckleys Dark Boc selected for the Beer Of The Month Club and look forward to trying more.

“Off The Menu” Rye Ale Selected For The Beer Of The Month Club

Every month we select a new beer for the Beer Of The Month Club

Cracking Open an Artic Fox Rye Ale

Cracking Open an Artic Fox Rye Ale

“We always try to surprise and delight our members with a wide selection of new and hard to find craft beers.” said Rob from Gift Of The Month Clubs“So we searched for and found the “off the menu” Rye Ale beer from the Arctic Fox micro brewery for this months Beer Of The Month Club.”

The Arctic Fox micro brewery has been operating for around a decade and could mainly be found promoting their craft beer at local markets and festivals. But this is a hard way to keep a micro brewery going in terms of sales and investment dollars needed to progress in an ever growing craft beer market so the partners decided to sell. However they encountered a few failed sale attempts with various buyers pulling out but was eventually bought by the Blood Brothers Brewery.

Dave Kepper took over as the manager of the Arctic Fox with years of brewing and liquor retailing experience behind him. “I’ve been managing the Arctic Fox since about 2008 but was involved in brewing and liquor sales for years before that”, said Dave.

Arctic Fox is an independent and authentic micro brewery located in the outer Melbourne suburb of Dandenong and are extremely passionate about making full flavored naturally brewed beer without preservatives. “We’re doing some great things at Arctic Fox and having a lot of fun making sure they’re all award winning standard”, said Dave with a smile while talking about their brewing process for the Rye Ale.

“Our Rye Ale uses up to 30% Rye which is pretty high and the grain gives a bitterness and spice we have to be careful with. Plus it’s got a citras nose and front pallet from sitting on Mandarin and Orange rinds which makes it a refreshing easy beer to drink.”

The Rye Ale isn’t on the Arctic Fox product list which makes it even more special for the Beer Of The Month Club members. “We’re like the television show where the guy finds off the menu specialty meals only the locals know about, except we do it with beer,” said Rob.

MICRO BREWING CRAFT BEER COURSE

Have you ever wondered how you could turn your passion in to a career?

Ballarat Micro Brewing Course

Ballarat Micro Brewing Course

Well the Federation University of Australia in Ballarat has designed a course for students with a passion for beer. And for some reason we don’t think they’re going to struggle finding new applicants, do you?

The micro brewing of craft beer goes way back from brewing lager, porter, ale, pilsner and more and continues to be refined. And students can now bring their passion also known as weekend activities in to the classroom and make a career from it.

A Graduate Certificate Diploma of Brewing is on offer and focuses on students developing a sound knowledge of the core concepts required in the malting and brewing industries. Plus there’s a short course in the art of brewing craft and boutique beers covering the basic science behind the art.

And if the craft beer receives a pass it gets sold at local Ballarat bars, providing there’s still some beer left after students have thoroughly tested the end product for quality control purposes.

So keep a look out Carlton Cold, XXXX and VB drinkers for the latest craft beer on offer at local Ballarat pubs.
