New-look Coopers Alehouse Opens At Adelaide Airport

After three month’s work and more than $1 million expenditure, the upgrade of one of the Adelaide Airport’s most popular destinations, the Coopers Alehouse, will be officially launched this afternoon (4pm).

The layout is one of a new generation of Coopers Alehouses that has been under development over the past 12 months.

The new design features a large open lounge and dining area with views across Adelaide to the Adelaide Hills. It features a broad selection of Coopers products, along with its international partner beers and a new menu that incorporates fresh South Australian produce.

It will also have extended trading hours, from 6 am until after the last flights leave at 11 pm.

Coopers Sales and Marketing Director, Mr Cam Pearce, said Coopers and operating partner Delaware North Companies Australia utilised the services of architects Studio Gram and brand development firm Band for the project.

Delaware has nine food and beverage outlets at the Adelaide Airport, including the Coopers Alehouse.

The original Coopers Alehouse at the airport opened in 2005 with the opening of the new Adelaide Airport terminal.

“It’s been almost 11 years since we opened the original Coopers Alehouse at the airport and we thought it was time for an update,” Mr Pearce said.

“Delaware North Companies Australia was very supportive of the concept when we presented it to them last year and has been a major partner in bringing this to fruition.

“We believe the new Coopers Alehouse will significantly enhance the customer experience.”

The revamped Coopers Alehouse will be officially launched by Coopers’ Managing Director, Dr Tim Cooper, and the Chief Operating Officer for Delaware North, Mr Kieran Fitzpatrick.

Mr Fitzpatrick said Delaware North had just commenced a multi-million dollar program to upgrade its outlets at the Adelaide Airport.

“The current Airport terminal has been running for 11 years and the time has come to refresh our outlets. The Coopers Alehouse is the first major refurb we have completed and we are delighted with the result. It raises the Alehouse to an entirely new level,” he said.

“It’s an exciting design and will be a real drawcard for visitors to the airport, those waiting for flights and people waiting to meet passengers.”

Mr Fitzpatrick said trading at the Alehouse in the week since the refurbishment had been completed had shown a significant uplift and he expected this would increase as the upgraded venue became better known.
