Coopers Celebrates another Limited Release Vintage Ale

Coopers’ Managing Director and Chief Brewer Dr Tim Cooper described Vintage Ale as a highly  anticipated brew and said the 2013 release would be greeted by devoted beer lovers everywhere.  “Hops are at the heart of this year’s Vintage, with Centennial, Chinook, Citra and Styrian Golding  hops all being used. “The intriguing combination of Centennial, Chinook and Citra creates strong citrus, grapefruit,  melon, lime and passionfruit aromas, while Styrian Golding provides spicy and floral flavours.

Dr Cooper said a combination of premium quality Australian malted barley, wheat and crystal malt  made up the grist composition. “The result, upon pouring, is a balanced flavour of malt sweetness with a lingering crisp  bitterness,” he said.

The alcohol content remains at 7.5% alcohol by volume, retaining Vintage Ale’s title as the strongest beer brewed by Coopers and one of the stronger beers produced in the world.

Coopers’ National Marketing Director Mr Cam Pearce said the 2013 Vintage Ale would once again  be made available in a 355ml bottle. “As in previous years, we expect that limited production and high demand will see Vintage Ale stocks go quickly,” he said.

Coopers Extra Strong Vintage Ale was first released in 1998, with further vintages in 1999, 2000, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.

The 2013 Vintage Ale is priced from around $80 per carton, or around $25 per six pack of 355 ml bottles.
