Coopers Brewery

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 4% 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 act as custodians of Thomas Cooper’s legacy and they 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.
