To say they're 'born to brew' may seem like a bold statement, but after dedicating over 150 years to the art of brewing, Coopers believe it's true.
'Coopers is a brewing family. It's in our blood. For six generations we've been custodians of a proud legacy that began in 1862 when Thomas Cooper brewed his first batch of ale. Our passion for brewing has kept us together and helped us through economic recessions, wars, government imposts, changing tastes, and the occasional hostile takeover bid.'
Today, their unique brand of naturally conditioned ales and stouts are enjoyed around the world and we're still making these beers using the same traditional brewing methods that Thomas did. And when they say hand-made by the Cooper family', they mean it. If you visit the Brewery you'll probably bump into a Cooper who works there. While other breweries might make all sorts of claims about their 'origins' the fact is that Coopers are Australia's oldest family owned and run brewery, and that's not changing anytime soon.
