Beer Of The Month Club. Watts River Brewing

Hi folks,

Long time between cheers! At least in blog terms.

We continued our never ending search for the best craft beer every month to deliver to our members and it was by chance my parents ran in to one of the Watts River Brewing family at a local bowls club.

So when Mum told me the story I wanted to know more about the two brewers who used to work at the famous White Rabbit brewery in Healesville, Victoria and thought.. these guys must know what they’re doing! I say this because the White Rabbit Dark Ale was one of the first craft beers I had the pleasure of tasting back in the day and was so impressed I started drinking more and more and..anyway back to Watts River Brewing.

Watts River Brewing call Healesville their home in the Yarra Valley, Victoria - and use the Watts River right next to them as one of their main supplies of brewing water. In other words, it’s a great foundation for producing fresh locally produced Australian craft beer.

“Why did you leave White Rabbit?” I said to Ben (Watts River Brewing Co-founder), “We wanted to brew our own beer without the quality being watered down.” Okay, enough said. But I still love the White Rabbit Dark Ale.

This months Beer of the month selection is the Stout aka Dry Roasty Stout from Watts River Brewing.

Dry Roasty Stout

Quote from the Watts River Brewing website.

“A dark, dry, roasty stout built on flavours of coffee and dark chocolate as well as a tiny hint of smoke drifting around in the background. Perfect to savour by yourself or share with an old mate.”

So instead of a roast, I propose a toast to the Watts River Brewing family and say cheers to a job well done. P.s we loved it :)

Myer Closing Down

Myer is closing one of their flagship stores at Chadstone shopping centre and is being replaced by international retailer TOPSHOP.

“As far as we can tell Myer isn’t closing their entire store at Chadstone; but the sign is up to vacate a whole level of premium retail space at Australia’s number one shopping centre; a space they have held for a long time and TOPSHOP is advertised as their replacement,” said Rob from Gift Of The Month Clubs.

Industry experts have questioned why TOPSHOP thinks they can make the space work and Myer cant; or is it just a matter of international department stores having better managers than Australia’s  oldest department store?

“It’s not something we like to see happening to Australian brands,” said Rob, “and unfortunately reminds us of the recent downfall of Dick Smith stores.”

Myer has lost its way over the last decade or so with declining revenues, a plunging share price and market share lost in Australia to new entrants and international stores entering Australia.

“It’s definitely a worrying sign for Myer, investors and Australian retail.”

Meet Ruby. Gift Of The Month Clubs Office Manager

When Ruby first entered our lives as a puppy she wasn’t allowed inside the office. But the rule didn’t last very long after Ruby gradually and persistently persuaded us to let her in, just for a while we said, followed by snoozing under our desks to now sitting on them.

Ruby’s tips: Take one step at a time, be patient, persistent and if you offer value you’ll succeed. Like I did. Ruby

Valentines Day Gift Ideas

Valentines Day is celebrated every year in Australia on February 14.

Valentines Day is a celebration day when couples give one another gifts of flowers, chocolate, jewelry and more. With many making   dinner reservations at restaurants across Australia.

But if you want something new and exciting this year, unfortunately it’s the same old same old things in gifts. “Well that was true until we launched Gift Of The Month Clubs in Australia,” said Sam from Gift Of The Month Clubs.

Gift Of The Month Clubs is a decades old business model originally made popular in the US by the Wine Of The Month Club as a unique way for companies to reward staff and associates with corporate gifts. And “Through popular demand the gift club concept evolved in to other markets like the Beer Of The Month Club, Flower Of The Month Club and more,” said Sam.
