It’s the end of the financial year in Australia with winter under way so we went searching for a beer that would suit the climate so to speak.
The Beer Of The Month Club team met at one of our warehouse locations to start the process of selecting our next beer of the month! And to do this we usually start by discussing what everyone’s latest favourite beer is, for example Pale Ale, Lager, Pilsner and other craft beers.
So Max said, “Hey that’s been one of my favourite beers of late; but for winter why dont we find a nice dark beer instead?” Followed by a moment of silence until Matthew said, “Yeah but I’ll be in Europe and its going to be summer.” And so another moment of silence followed after Matthew had mentioned Europe again after including it in his last 100 sentences (but between us we’re secretly jealous, but don’t tell Matthew!) then Rob said, “Okay, I’ve been looking at some micro breweries and Buckley’s brewery sounds interesting. Why don’t we contact the head brewer and set up a good old fashioned beer tasting?” Heads nodded in agreement.
Buckleys Beer Healesville
The Buckleys Micro Brewery started in 2001 and is one of the early pioneers of craft beer in Melbourne, Australia. But amazingly it’s not very well known outside of the inner craft beer scene which makes it another hard to find beer for our Beer Of The Month Club members. Not that we’re boasting or anything, well maybe a bit.
So where were we? Oh that’s right, Buckleys Brewery. Buckleys beer was named after the infamous convict William Buckley who had escaped prison and set up camp with the Wathaurung Tribe in the Bellarine Peninsula of Port Phillip Bay between 1803 to 1835, which later started the Australian saying, “You’ve got Buckley’s chance”. And so Buckleys Brewery thought they would create their own saying that goes something like the following..
“Once you’ve tried the traditionally brewed Buckleys beer, non-filtered, full-flavoured ales and lagers you’ll come to the realisation it’s “Buckley’s, or none!”

So we had the enviable task of tasting Buckley’s range of craft beers, presented below by Buckleys Beer Manager Heath, and in keeping with our mission selected the Buckley’s Dark Boc for this months Beer Of The Month Club.
