The not-so-minor details
Coopers Celebration Ale
A post ride beer is sometimes more of a celebration than a reward and the Coopers Celebration Ale is the perfect drop to rejoice with.
Continuing Coopers’ tradition of bottle conditioning, the Celebration Ale lingers with the cloudy sediment of a fruity, yet smooth taste, and we found it the perfect accompaniment to those longer, tougher rides. It’s not an instant reward of cool refreshment that you might get from a lighter beer, but rather that more filling fulfilment. As with most good ales it’s also best served at a milder temperature, not from the freezing depths of an ice bucket.
It however isn’t to be taken lightly as the strong taste and over 5% alc. content can leave you a little light headed as you’re grasping for post ride refreshment. The Coopers Celebration Ale comes highly recommended, and tested
**Always remember to drink responsibly and never drink and drive – that’s why you have a bike.
South Australia’s Coopers Brewery is the largest Australian-owned brewery, a fact that the Coopers family hold very dear.
The Coopers family have been continuously brewing since 1862 when Thomas Cooper first brewed a ‘restorative beverage’ for his unwell wife! In 2012, the Coopers Brewery celebrates 150 years and have created this Celebration Ale to commemorate the occasion. A bottle conditioned ale that has an appealing reddish hue and rich aromas of tropical fruit esters and a hint of citrus. On the palate, this limited edition brew has a smooth malty taste with a balanced, warming finish.
