CoopersCoopers has officially launched its 2016 Vintage Ale.

‘Coopers Extra Strong Vintage’ is the 16th beer in Cooper’s vintage range which first debuted in 1998.

Managing Director and Chief Brewer at Coopers, Dr Tim Cooper, said the 2016 Vintage Ale featured five hops varieties.

“The 2016 Vintage will again deliver the intense aromas and flavours that loyal drinkers have come to expect over time,” Dr Cooper said.

“The master hop breeder at Ellerslie Hop Estates recommended the use of a new variety of hops, Astra, which has been grown in Myrrhee in Victoria. This particular hop offers floral and fruity tones which complement another favourite stablemate, Melba, grown in the same region.”

The 2016 Vintage Ale has a recommended retail price of $85 for a carton or $25 for a six pack of 335ml bottles. It is available from all major liquor retailers.
