New brew marks 160 years of beer craft

 Australia’s largest independent family-owned brewery, Coopers, is releasing an Australian style Red Ale to celebrate its 160th year in 2022. 

Coopers Regency Park Red Ale is a new limited-edition release brewed using Coopers’ traditional ale techniques. 

Managing director and chief brewer, Dr Tim Cooper, said Regency Park Red Ale, which features the location of Coopers’ South Australian brewery in its packaging, was the perfect addition to the portfolio in this milestone year. 

“Coopers has been crafting traditional ales since 1862, when Thomas Cooper began brewing with the exclusive use of malt and hops in his brews,” Cooper said. 

“Now, in 2022, we’re pleased to expand our portfolio with the limited-edition Regency Park Red Ale to mark the special occasion of our 160th birthday.

 “The use of drum-roasted caramel malts creates a rich red hue, while Coopers’ signature top fermentation and natural conditioning contributes to the full flavour and the cloudy appearance from the fine yeast sediment. 

A selection of all-Australian hops, including Eclipse and Melba, have been used. 

Coopers Regency Park Red Ale will be available in kegs and 375ml can format from late March.

It is the latest addition to the sixth-generation family brewery’s growing portfolio of craft style beers and follows the limited-edition Australian IPA (released in 2021) and Hazy IPA (released in 2020). Regency Park Red Ale has an ABV of 5.5%.
