Ahead of the release of the 2023 Vintage Ale, Coopers has revealed a new look for the beer that reflects the brewery’s brand identity and the seasonal ale’s premium category.
Coopers Managing Director and Chief Brewer, Dr Tim Cooper, said the 2023 Vintage Ale continues the brewery’s tradition of producing highly popular annual seasonal releases.
“Australian drinkers have a real thirst for seasonal brews, and we expect loyal Coopers drinkers will be exceptionally pleased with this year’s Vintage Ale release,” Dr Cooper said.
“A rich, balanced and full-bodied ale, the 2023 Vintage drinks well immediately, and if stored under cellar conditions will evolve and develop to become more complex over time,” he added.
The limited-edition brew offers intense fruity and floral flavours due to the use of American hop Talus. It is a full-bodied, extra-strong ale sitting at 65 IBU and an alcohol level of 7.5 per cent ABV.
“The flavour hero of the 2023 Vintage is Talus, a dual-purpose American hop that delivers bold aromas of citrus and berries, with grapefruit, stone fruit, coconut, and pine on the palate,” Dr Cooper described.
This year’s release is the 23rd Vintage Ale, with the collection beginning in 1998.
Released in the lead up to Father’s Day, Coopers 2023 Vintage Ale will be available in liquor outlets from late July and will also be available for a limited time on tap at selected venues around the country.
