Fodor's Review

Founded by Thomas Cooper in 1862, this is Australia's only large-scale, independent, family-owned brewery. The Coopers beer story began when Thomas tried to create a tonic for his ailing wife, Ann, but instead created his first batch of beer. Customers grew in numbers as Thomas hand-delivered his all natural ales and stout by horse and cart; the tradition lives on with guest appearances at special events by Clydesdayles drawing the very same cart that Thomas once used. You can take guided tours (A$22) of the brewhouse and enjoy tastings of the award-winning siganture Coopers ales, including Coopers Pale Ale, Coopers Sparkling Ale, and Coopers Stout, in the Museum post tour. The museum features a display of the historic horse and cart, vintage Coopers delivery truck, and pictorials showcasing the history of the brewery.
