When five new owners took over a defunct brewery in Victoria's Yarra Valley in mid-2001, they were faced with three difficult problems. They couldn't think of a new name for their brewery; they didn't have a site for it; and they weren't sure that they could even make their beers in commercial quantities. In short, they feared that they had Buckley's chance of making a success of it. This fear soon became the solution to their first problem and Buckley's Beers was born.

Late in 2002 the brewery was removed to a new site in nearby Healesville, and now it is plain that its products are commercially viable; Buckley's Pilz won two silver awards (for packaged and draught) at the Australian International Beer Awards in 2003.


  • Buckley's Bitter (?% alc)
    Dark in colour, with a medium-bodied palate, balanced with generous bitterness (from the inclusion of fresh hops in the kettle) and a long dry finish. Available in bottles only.
  • Buckley's Original Ale (4.9% alc)
    Full-bodied, deep amber in colour, with a tight creamy head. The complex aroma comes from a blend of four malts (one Australian and three European). Hops are from north-eastern Victoria, Germany, The United States, and the United Kingdom.
  • Buckley's Pilz (4.5% alc)
    A full-flavoured, golden-coloured lager with good malt character, a dominant flowery hop character, and a dry finish. Pils is bottle and cask-conditioned.
