Each 8 pack contains a bottle of each 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 Vintage Ale plus 2 Coopers Chalice Glasses. At only $50 a pack, we can’t think of a better gift for Dad. If your Dad has patience too, the gift will become even better, as Dr Tim Cooper claims “Those who have the patience to cellar the beer will enjoy enhanced flavours in years to come.”
The beer is designed to mature with time, as the bitterness slowly mellows and gives way to rich, sweet, caramel-like characters. They recommend that beer-lovers buy a carton to either enjoy while the ale is in its youth, cellar and savour every few months, or even compare with previous and future Vintages.”
The Coopers brewers have been working at the 2017 Vintage Ale for months. Slaving over the brew. Relentlessly testing it to ensure it’s the best it can be. And just when they thought it was ready for you, they tested it again. Yes, it’s a tough job crafting the ultimate beer but someone has to do it. The beer is distinguished by its crimson-red colour and full-bodied taste; rich in malt, honey and dry nutty characters, the ale has evolved with the inclusion of a special blend of caramalt. The caramalt contributes well to the balance of bold malt flavours and the softness of a fine and creamy head.
