Coopers Backs Inaugural Craft Beer Festival

Coopers Backs Inaugural Craft Beer Festival

Coopers Brewery is continuing its support for the growing craft beer sector through its sponsorship of the first-ever Adelaide Beer & BBQ Festival next month.

The festival will be held over three days from July 10-12 in the historic Brick Cattle Pavilion and Lawns at the Adelaide Showground.

More than 30 South Australian, Australian and international craft beer and cider makers will be showcased along with some of the state’s best restaurants and chefs.

Coopers National Sales and Marketing Director, Mr Cam Pearce, said that as the craft beer sector had grown, Coopers had grown with it.

“Thomas Cooper was the original craft brewer, 153 years ago,” Mr Pearce said.

“Coopers has strong credentials as a craft brewer and has been doing it for longer than most.”

Coopers Brewery will showcase its portfolio of ales as well as the Thomas Cooper range.

The Royal Adelaide Beer and Cider Awards will be presented live at the festival on Friday evening. Medal winners will be exhibiting their award winning beers and ciders, meaning festival-goers will be able to sample them before anyone else.

Mr Pearce said Coopers was proud to be partnering with the festival in recognition of Australia’s beer and cider industry.

“The Adelaide Beer & BBQ Festival is happening in our own backyard, so we see it as our responsibility to help make sure it’s a success,” Mr Pearce said.
