COOPERS BRINGS BACK THE LIMITED EDITION BREW

South Australia's Coopers Brewery has added to its long history of limited edition beers with the 2013 Extra Strong Vintage Ale.

Set to be launched at the Coopers Alehouse in Adelaide on July 5, it will be the 13th limited edition beer in its series, with Coopers MD and brewing boss, Dr Tim Cooper admitting it used Centennial, Chinook, Citra and Styrian Golding hops.

“The intriguing combination of Centennial, Chinook and Citra creates strong citrus, grapefruit, melon, lime and passionfruit aromas, while Styrian Golding provides spicy and floral flavours," Dr Tim insisted.

He said it used a combination of premium quality Australian malted barley, wheat and crystal malt made up the grist composition, targeting a balance of malt sweetness and lingering, crisp bitterness.

Available only on tap and in a 355ml bottle, the 2013 Extra Strong Vintage Ale will top out at 7.5% alcohol by volume and will be around $80 a carton or $25 for a six pack.

Coopers Extra Strong Vintage Ale was first released in 1998, with further vintages in 1999, 2000, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.
