A Taste of the Good Life
Renamed from The Rev James when the Rev James range expanded to include Gold and Rye.
Originally brewed by Crown Buckley as Reverend James Original Ale, the brand was kept by Brains when they acquired Crown Buckley in 1998. Initially still badged as Buckleys, it became unbadged, simply known as The Rev. James.
The beer is named after the founder of Buckleys Brewery, the Reverend James Buckley (1770 1839). It is brewed to a traditional recipe and has been described as having a flavour not commonly available these days. Full-bodied and warming, The Rev. James is rich in palate, spicy and aromatic with a deeply satisfying finish.
