Bickley Valley Brewery

Bottleshops with growler filling stations are wonderful things. Not just because they allow us to drink fresh, draught beer in the comfort of our own homes. They also offer an extra point of sale for small, independent breweries that don’€™t bottle their beer.€“ Something that is particularly commonplace in Western Australia. One of the fresher names on the WA scene is Bickley Valley Brewery. Whose beers having been pouring from the Pegas at Cellarbrations at Carlisle since late last year. Few would have heard of the relatively new microbrewery. Yet, already Bickley Valley beers are finding their way into the fridges of happy drinkers.

Situated in the Perth Hills, 30 minutes from the CBD. Bickley Valley Brewery is a production brewery and the long-time project of its brewer and owner, Brad Harris. We caught up with Brad for a chat about how he came to be in the position of running his own craft brewery.


Money-Saving Hobby at First

What started as a money-saving hobby quickly became a passion and, within a few years, Brad found himself learning firsthand from one of WA’€™s most experienced craft brewers. His first taste of professional brewing was ten years ago with Jan Bruckner (of Last Drop Brewery), a Czech master brewer in Perth. It was by pure luck – right time, right place – and it got him even more interested in large scale brewing and the mechanical engineering side of things. Jan is his idol and his mentor.â

After his stint at Last Drop with Jan, an opportunity arose for a head brewer at Elmar’€™s in the Valley, a microbrewery in the Swan Valley. Brad jumped at the opportunity and held the position of head brewer at Elmar’€™s for six years. Being a German-themed brewery, all the beers at Elmar’€™s are brewed to the Reinheitsgebot -€“ the Bavarian purity law of 1516 which states that the only ingredients permitted to be used in the production of beer are water, barley and hops (yeast having yet to be discovered). Happily, this was a good fit with Brad’€™s own brewing philosophy.
