Coopers Today


Over 150 years, Coopers has survived economic recessions, wars, government imposts, changing fashions, and a hostile takeover bid.

Today, Coopers stands proudly as the sole major brewer 100% owned by Australians, and holds over 5% of the Australian beer market.

The descendants of Thomas Cooper still run the brewery, and it's an everyday occurrence to meet a Cooper at Regency Park. The fifth and sixth generations acting as custodians of Thomas Cooper’s legacy are:

Dr Tim Cooper, Managing Director & Chief Brewer
Glenn Cooper, Chairman
Melanie Cooper, Corporate Affairs Director & Company Secretary
Cam Pearce, National Sales & Marketing Director
Dr James Cooper, Non-Executive Director
Rachel Cooper-Casserly, Marketing Events Co-ordinator

So rest assured, Coopers Brewery is in the hands of those who have the same values as Thomas Cooper.  Successive Coopers have never lost sight of Thomas’ vision of providing value and quality in the form of healthy beer for an appreciative public, and we intend to continue that tradition.
