I think Coopers have been very smart in their introduction of crafty's. They've actually moved with the trend while keeping their classics and haven't had to alter their branding.

They have also made 3 delicious beers (session, xpa, hazy IPA) which rival any of the best micro brewers'.

The thing that annoys me with craft is that they get changed up so often that I can't keep up with what I like and struggle to find one's that I have enjoyed. That's why I keep drinking Coopers.

Many years ago, on a visit to Copenhagen, we went to the Carlsberg Brewery. Free tour, and they gave you 4 tickets for free beers in their bar at the end of the tour.

And my wife didn't want her 4...

Best light beer in Oz: (imo)

Even lighter at 0.5% alcohol :grimacing:


... handy to have a few around when you have to stop drinking 'cos you're driving but still feel like a few frosties. Quite good (maybe a bit fruity for some) - sort of newish, came on market last year.


Also, I did a zero alcohol tasting post here and Budejovicky Budvar B:Free was the best of what I tried

I visited with my brother around 15 years ago & also enjoyed their Tuborg beers. They had some great ales that you can't get here.

You got 2 free beers when visiting so we tried 4 different beers between us.... so sounds like they have upped their free beer tickets.

Who else oerfers beers in a bottle or glass v can?

Pubs like the Exeter which serve beer in chilled glasses make for a better experience.
Chilled glass>>>>>>> can>>>>>bottle >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>plastic cup.


To the point I won't buy beer at the Footy unless really want one.

Won’t drink beer from a can
I was surprised when my brewing mate got cans over bottles in his allowance.

He said cans have changed in quality 10 years ago. In bottles even brown ones the beer deteriorates quicker.


Icy cold can, tipped into a glass mug from the fridge.

This was 2004 that we went. Maybe I caused them to cut the tickets???

Got no problem drinking beer in a can, just don’t like drinking from a can at all.
I’m actually having a Coopers Session/Pacific Ale from a can but in a glass now.
This is my current go to beer at the moment.

I quite like the Session/Pacific's taste. But can never have more than two.


I am guessing that is why it is now called Pacific....
