Major development brewing for Coopers

Construction of Coopers Brewery’s $50 million development is now underway with ground broken on the site earlier this week.

The official sod-turning event marked the start of a construction phase that will see a new world-class visitor centre, microbrewery and whisky distillery unveiled at the home of Australia’s largest independent family-owned brewery in Regency Park, Adelaide.

Coopers has appointed Australian construction company Built to deliver the new development.

Coopers Brewery Managing Director Dr Tim Cooper said there has been an overwhelmingly positive public response to the development since plans were announced in April this year.

“This is an exciting expansion for Coopers, and represents a significant investment for the company, with an emphasis on maximising Australian input throughout the process,” Cooper said.

“As a proud Australian company, we hope to create a welcoming experience for local, national and international visitors, while positioning our brewery for the future.

“The feedback we’ve received from Coopers fans near and far is gratifying and their vote of confidence in this major investment is much appreciated.

“This marks a major milestone and our team is excited to see our vision start to become a reality.

“We look forward to working with Built and all our project partners to deliver a highly unique and immersive facility.”

“This project will help bolster job creation providing in excess of 500 onsite local South Australian jobs during the construction phase and many more in the manufacturing of material prior to site delivery,” Built state general manager Chris Bate said.

“Our highly experienced local team are looking forward to delivering a high-quality result that both the Coopers team and the people of South Australia can be proud of for many years to come.”

The Coopers development will include a restaurant and bar, outdoor plaza dining, a dedicated tasting room, interactive history display, microbrewery, whisky distillery and underground stillage for whisky maturation.

Construction is expected to be completed by May, 2024.

Founded in 1862, Coopers Brewery is a sixth-generation family company.
