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.

Craft Beer, Burger and Chips Revolution

Craft Beer, Burger and Chips

There’s a craft beer, burger and chips revolution going on in Australia and for the sake of research I combined the three for the benefit of our readers. I’m good like that :)

Craft beer. Hawkers Beer was one of our recent micro brewery selections for the Beer Of The Month Club and so I grabbed a Hawkers Pilsner and headed down to Zenn Burgers in Melbourne, Australia.

Zenn Burgers

I don’t remember the name of the burger I ordered but it was a big one and I’m pretty sure I could pick it out of a line up! This is because it had two big juicy beef burgers, lashes of bacon, relish and more and so it was probably called the Zenn Big Burger or something similar. So if you read this Zenn Burgers, please take a look at the below photo and let us know on Facebook what it’s called. Thanks!

It was a truly delicious burger and chips and combined with a Pilsner craft beer from Hawkers Beer it was a match made in heaven.

Why Should I Give Obligation Gifts?

“Hey Mum, why do I have have to give Uncle John a gift?”

“Because it’s Christmas and he’s your Uncle and that’s what people do,” said Mum.

Christmas Gifts

Well you’re not alone if you’ve asked or thought this before. Groupon Australia conducted a recent Christmas survey with 12,000 people and found 1 in 3 people are planning on buying obligation gifts this Christmas for friends and family.

But why give obligation Christmas gifts if you dont want to?

“Don’t ever feel bad about giving someone a gift”, said Sam from Gift Of The Month Clubs, “No matter how big or small it is; like a flower picked from a garden to a 12 month membership to the Flower Of The Month Club, it all contributes to the abundance of the universe and you will benefit from giving as much as receiving.

But wouldn’t it be better if I just kept everything to myself and didn’t give anything away?

“Perhaps in theory, but in practice no”, said Sam. ”Because the importance of giving and receiving is like the importance of blood flowing through our veins to survive. And what would happen if everybody stopped spending? The world would collapse. So dont  think of Christmas gifts or any other type of gift exchange as any type of chore or obligation. Instead, give more than ever before and think of giving as a way to contribute to the abundance of your life and your gift recipients life. Because without giving the world would cease to exist”

Morale of the story. Keep the abundance of the universe flowing in your life. No matter how big or small, remember to give and accept gifts as part of contributing to the abundance of your life and other peoples lives. Because without dynamic exchange the world would dry up like a plant without water

Corporate Gifts for Christmas Gone Wrong

It’s that time of year again when you’re searching for the best corporate gifts for Christmas; but are there any risks I should consider?

Hot Air Balloon Fire

1. EXPERIENCE GIFTS

Experience gifts have become a popular corporate gift in Australia, but may look a lot better on paper than in reality.

For example,

Experience gifts for men

Let’s take Hot Air Ballooning as a popular corporate gift example. And on paper it sounds like a great experience for everyone while you’re gift recipient is up in the sky flying over the land and thinking about the wonderful gift you gave them. But what if something happens? Like for example the weather changes (and in Melbourne, Australia its famous for changing every 15 minutes) and your forced to land in a suburban car park? But don’t worry, the good news is in the most recent case of this happening they didn’t hit any telephone wires!? Read about it here

But a lot of people like the type of gift that gets the heart racing and trying new experiences etc – but since we’re talking about corporate gifts that can effect your career we wont be recommending it.

Experience gifts for women

Lets say you’re thinking about giving a woman a hair & beauty gift voucher for Christmas. Well before you do, stop and ask yourself the following questions, 1. Have I visited the salon previously and know what it looks like (apart from the glossy pictures on the website)? Because the third party website promoting the deal probably hasn’t. 2. Who’s in charge of cutting, coloring and blow drying my gift recipients hair? Is it the owner, head stylist or an apprentice in charge of voucher deals? And 3. What do I really know about hair & beauty treatments? Because it’s literally a minefield you’re stepping in to and one we recommend avoiding for corporate gifts for Christmas.

TIP: The first rule of corporate gifts for Christmas is..
1. Don’t take risks!
And you can probably guess what the second and third rules are with a little thing like your career or business at stake if something goes wrong.

2. HAND MADE GIFTS

We’ve all been taught it’s the thought that counts, right?

Which is true but if you’re thinking like this in relation to corporate gifts for Christmas you’re probably a very nice person but incredibly naïve! Because no-one will appreciate a home made cake under these circumstances compared with a professionally made cake delivered; or a bunch of flowers picked from your garden instead of arranging a professionally designed bunch of flowers delivered from a florist. Dont you agree?

TIP: Don’t get too creative and artsy etc with corporate gifts for Christmas (or any other time of the year) no matter how good your intentions are because the potential downside far outweighs the upside compared with giving a more traditional type of corporate gift.

3. Clothing, Shoes, Lingerie, Perfume

These items are just too personal for corporate gifts, dont you agree? Of course! Unless there’s something going on of course we dont know about or its an individual situation which might be okay. But in general these types of gifts are risky are we recommend steering clear of them.

TIP: Stick to gifts with proven success in corporate settings. And if you want to give something a bit different look for traditional type gifts with a twist.
