A fine year for a vintage ale

Australia’s largest independent family-owned brewery, Coopers, led the way when it came to releasing vintage brews.

Coopers has released its latest seasonal ale: the 2022 Vintage Ale, which is the 22nd vintage beer it has made.

Each year, the Coopers brewing team creates a limited-edition Vintage Ale, which is defined by its hop selection.

The 2022 Vintage features El Dorado, an American dual-purpose hop with tropical, pear and stone fruit notes and Huell Melon, a German variety delivering fruit and berry flavours. The brew also uses Coopers Pale Malt.

Coopers managing director and chief brewer Dr Tim Cooper said the 2022 Vintage Ale underlines the brewery’s consistency in developing of premium quality, limited-edition beers.

“Coopers is this year celebrating our 160th anniversary of brewing and the 2022 Vintage is an outstanding ale that befits the occasion,” Cooper said.

“The Coopers Vintage release is much anticipated across Australia every year. This year’s release is a rich, balanced and full-bodied ale with floral and spice characters.

“2022 Vintage Ale is perfect to drink now, or if stored under cellar conditions, it will become more complex over time as the flavours evolve and develop.

“Coopers Vintage Ale is best savoured at between 4 and 6 degrees and served in a tulip-shaped glass to show off its flavours and aromas."

The 2022 Vintage Ale underwent secondary fermentation and has an alcohol level of 7.5% ABV. It is available in six packs and cartons.
