Where it all began...
When Thomas Cooper used an old family recipe to brew his first batch of ale back in 1862, it would be fair to describe him as a novice craft brewer. Apparently, he’d only intended it to be a tonic for his sick wife, but the resulting ale was so flavorsome that friends and neighbors soon came to appreciate it for more than just its ‘restorative’ properties. As demand for his naturally conditioned Ales grew throughout the fledgling colony of South Australia, Thomas Cooper’s growing passion for brewing soon became his profession.
Before Thomas passed away, he handed over the reins to his four sons, and so began a proud family tradition that has continued in an unbroken chain of six generations, for more than 150 years. While Thomas Cooper’s original recipe is still being used, successive generations of Coopers have made improvements along the way.
Today, this unique brand of naturally conditioned ales and stouts are enjoyed all around the world.
