A special delivery arrived on the doorstep of Broome’s oldest pub this month after travelling 10,000km by motorbike from a small town in NSW. Roger Danne — also known as Old Man Bucketty — was applauded as he motored out of Brookvale, north of Sydney, earlier this year, leaving behind his beloved brewhouse Bucketty’s Brewing Co to begin his long journey to the Kimberley with a swag and a 12-pack of his favourite brew — the 5 Day XPA. The journey took him two months on his motorbike, passing through Cairns and Darwin before finally rolling up right outside the Roebuck Bay Hotel. Throughout his trip, Mr Danne handed out vouchers for a free beer at Bucketty’s Brewing Co. “They’re unique cards for this trip. If I met somebody in Cairns, I would give them a card and if they ever went down to Sydney, they can get a free drink,” the brewery owner said. When he finally arrived at the Roebuck Bay Hotel, Old Man Bucketty shared a beer with hotel owner Peter Coppin. “I’m so excited to finally be able to hand over this case of beer,” he said. “I’ve travelled 9900km to get here and brought it the whole way with me.” Mr Danne said it was always on his bucket list to visit Broome and bringing the beer with him was his way of sharing his brewery’s fun energy with the Kimberley town. “Bucketty’s is all positivity, all fresh, new and vibrant,” he said. “People walk in for one beer and end up loving it.” He said it felt “phenomenal” to arrive in Broome. “I figured if I’m going all that way, give me a case of beer and I’ll share it with Broome,” he said. Old Man Bucketty is now making his way down to Perth, where he will hand another case of beer signed by the Manly Lifesaving Club to the Perth Lifesaving Club.
