The 2020 release of our much-loved Vintage Ale had to be special to recognise the 20th brew of one of our most famous ales. The Coopers brewing team has revelled in the challenge of making an authentic Vintage Ale with that special twist we have become accustomed to. A special ‘Leabrook’ barley from the Adelaide Hills was chosen to create the Pale malt for this brew and, when combined with crystal and wheat malt, provides a smooth mouthfeel and a fine creamy head.
This year, six… (yes, that’s right six!) hop varieties have been used, paying tribute to past favourites, whilst embracing some new-world varieties. The combination of Astra, Cascade, Centennial, Denali, Enigma and Simcoe delivers a stunning burst of fruit filled flavours, with hints of peach, pineapple, fennel, spice and pine. At 7.5% ABV this all malt, bottle conditioned, hop-filled brew is extremely limited and won’t last long. Drink it now or cellar for later, but either way, make sure you get some before it’s gone!
