The company has had significant periods of investment over the years – expanding into lager production in the 1960s, building a new bottling hall and warehouse in the 1970s, a new brew house in the 1980s and constructing their current brewery at Regency Park in Adelaide’s northern suburbs in 2000.
ANZ has been able to work side by side with the Cooper family to help them expand from the local to the national and international markets. Historically they sold two thirds of their beer inside South Australia. Now three quarters of their production is sold outside the state.
Their latest project is a new $48 million visitor centre and brand home at Regency Park. It will include a restaurant and bar, outdoor dining plaza, interactive history centre, microbrewery, whisky distillery and underground stillage for whisky maturation.
It’s expected to be completed by the end of 2023 and will allow visitors to the brewery to
enjoy a beer, have a meal, go on a tour or do a tasting.
What is inspiring and unique about the Cooper family is the strong brand and customer loyalty they have created. It's about family, it's about Adelaide and about South Australia, and they have always maintained that connection to their heritage.
Likewise, generation after generation of ANZ staff have worked with the family to create a unique and successful business and brand.
