August 16-Cooper’s Brewery Original Pale Ale-dedicated to Crofty

One thing about blogs that has been fascinating to me is the people that give your posts a like or even comment on what you have written about. In turn you follow their blog and learn something new or get educated in something you had no idea existed. Well for me with my “beer of the day” posts it has been a man named Crofy from Australia who has exposed me to some great beers that I just can’t easily access. We both have discovered drinking different beers connects us even though we are a half a world away. That connection has put me on the lookout for something Australian to drink that was not Foster’s. 

Well tonight I found it a beer called Coopers Brewery Original Pale Ale. Well unfortunately this beer didn’t live up to some of the beers Crofty has described from Australia. I will keep trying. The beer contains 4.5% ABV and is brewed in Regency Park, South Australia. If you get a chance check out Crofty’s Beer Blog I promise you it is better than the Original Pale Ale I had tonight.

  1. Cheers mate, Thanks for the kind words. I must have skimmed past this post yesterday. Coopers is the largest remaining Australian owned brewery following the sale of Fosters/Carlton United Brewing to SABMiller over a year ago.

    Family owned for over 150years, they produce bottle conditioned beers more along the mainstream flavour palate though. My preferences from Coopers are the mild ale (orange label), the sparkling ale (red label) and the best extra stout, but the pale goes down well if fresh too. They also do a really clean pilsner called 62 which you can easily devour a dozen on a warm day.

    If comparing to an American brewery I guess I’d compare Coopers to say Boston Beer Co, a little on the craft side of things, but not likely to stretch too far from centre with the main line.

    On that note though, they recently collaborated with a small brewpub/restaurant in the hills region of Adelaide (think wine country) to produce a botanic ale made with barley grown in the Adelaide Botanic Gardens see here: http://www.coopers.com.au/community-news-events/news-events-blog/august/detail/adelaide-city-barley-crop-in-new-botanic-ale/
