Formulated with the perfect balance of malted grains and Ginger, this original Morgan s recipe is great summer drink in a tall glass filled with ice or as a mixer with Dark Rum and a slice of lime over ice.
Both non alcoholic and alcoholic versions can be made from this Ginger Beer Kit which makes 20 litres.
Thomas Cooper had two wives and 19 children, who went on to have children and grandchildren of their own. It is not surprising then that today 5th and 6th generation Coopers oversee and work at the brewery. They are the custodians of all the family secrets.
Luckily for beer lovers, an Amber Ale recipe is one of the secrets passed down by the members of the Cooper family. Rich deep copper in colour, this mid bodied Ale has a biscuity malt palate balanced by toffee caramel sweetness and a nutty finish with citrus hop notes. Certainly a secret worth sharing.
Light yellow-gold colour with a tightly packed white head, floral nose with a hint of malt, medium bodied palate with delicate hopping and a slightly bitter finish. The most discerning draught drinker will appreciate this beer.
Used for making drier, lower carb beer styles. Add with the yeast to break down more of the malt sugars which allows the yeast to ferment them for a lower carb, drier beer. This enzyme may extend fermentation time so ensure the specific gravity is stable
In 1862, Coopers brewery operations were located close to an area known as the Devil’s Half Acre. This rather intimidating name stemmed from the somewhat menacing people that frequented the neighbourhood. As such, it had a reputation for being a place to steer clear of at night.
This devilish brew is inspired by the shady characters of the Devil’s Half Acre. As black as the sinister night, this full bodied Porter has ruby hints, delicious chocolate toffee malt character, moderate bitterness with fruity hop notes and a rich creamy head. It’s sure to bring out your dark side.
A golden yellow highly aromatic Weiss style beer with an excellent head and vanilla overtones. A classic Weizen bier clear and bright until chilled , then cloudy but golden. (includes 7g yeast sachet under the lid)
It may come as a surprise but as well as being a brewer Thomas Cooper was also a lay Preacher. This was all above aboard. In the mid 1900s the Methodists praised the brewing of beer as a respectable trade, which “provided the working man with good, wholesome malt liquor.”
Today the working man’s prayers are answered with this Belgian style wheat beer. It’s a bright hazy gold with soft texture, banana and clove aromas, smooth creamy white head and refreshingly tart finish. Of course, if you’ve already tried it, we’re preaching to the converted.
Thomas Coopers first wife Ann, was an Innkeeper’s daughter so she knew a thing or two about brewing. In fact, when Ann became ill Thomas used her recipe, which she acquired from her father, as a tonic for his beloved wife. This tonic went on to become the now world famous Sparkling Ale.
Made in the tradition of the commercial brew, this Sparkling Ale has a deep golden amber colour and full malt driven palate. It displays distinctive fruitiness with banana esters, generous hops, a clean bitter finish and strong creamy head. The perfect tonic for what Ales you.
This is a replacement of the Thomas Coopers Selection Sparkling Ale.
In 1968 Coopers brewed their first ever lager under the moniker ‘Gold Crown.’ A delicate, less sweet beer of the Dortmunder type, it was an overwhelming success and heralded a new era for the brewery.
In the tradition of Maxwell Cooper’s original recipe this brew makes a classic lager with deep golden hues and a firm malty body. Refreshingly bitter with a lingering fruity aroma, this golden lager is crowned by a tight compact head.
Thomas Cooper’s first occupation in Adelaide was as a bootmaker in the small village of Kensington, three miles east of the city. He plied his original trade a few doors down from the Rising Sun Inn where, in later years, he’d get his foot in the door with his very own Ales.
After Thomas hung up his cobbler’s boots, he turned his hand to brewing beers like this American-style Pale Ale. It has a rich amber colour, toffee malt flavours, citrus and pine hop aromas, a refreshing bitter finish and thick creamy head. Would Thomas approve? You can bet your boots.
Thomas Cooper, his wife Ann and their two children set sail for Australia from Plymouth, England aboard the SS Omega on the 29th May 1852. The treacherous sea voyage took 86 days and seemed like an eternity but they finally reached the sunny shores of Adelaide on the 24th August.
86 Days Pilsner pays homage to the journey Thomas took to make a fresh start for his family. It’s golden in colour with subtle malty sweetness and elegant refined herbal notes, a refreshingly clean, crisp bitter finish and rich frothy head. Thankfully, it will take you a lot less than 86 days to make it.
Mexico is known for its arid lands, dusty conditions and oppressive heat. So it’s not surprising that the people of Mexico are expert at quenching a thirst.
Coopers Mexican Cerveza emulates the style of the finest quality beers exported from Mexico. This premium beer is light in style with a fresh clean taste, ideally served ice-cold with a wedge of lime or lemon.
A rich, dark brew displaying coffee, chocolate and licorice aromatics, roasty bitter notes with a dry finish.
Coopers Irish Stout is an authentic recipe containing a blend of malted barley, roasted barley, flaked barley and hops. The pour will exhibit a turbulent, cascading tan foaming action. Eventually, this settles into a creamy beige coloured head that rests atop the beer.
