Coopers is an Aussie legend. It’s been brewing its famous ales since 1862, almost since Adam was a boy. South Australian, Thomas Cooper, brewed his first batch as a tonic for his sick wife. But when neighbours and friends started queuing up for it, he realised he was on to a good thing, and so began his new profession. So we owe a huge debt to his sick wife!
Coopers has been family-run for over 150 years, which is a heck of a lot of stubbies. its Pale Ale and Sparkling Ale have become household names. The company still uses Thomas Cooper’s original recipe but they’ve improved production along the way.
The reputation of their range of naturally conditioned ales and stouts has gone global. And so has the fact that there are no additives or preservatives in any of their products, which makes for guilt-free imbibing.
Almost as famous as their ales is Coopers ale yeast, which has been nurtured like a royal baby for the many generations of Coopers brewers.
