Brooklyn Contract Ends

07 Nov 2018

A contract brewing agreement under which Coopers produced and distributed Brooklyn Brewery products in Australia will end on December 17 this year.

Coopers National Sales and Marketing Director, Mr Cam Pearce, said the current agreement had come into effect in August 2015.

“Japanese brewer Kirin took a 24.5% ownership stake in Brooklyn in 2016 and Kirin also has full ownership of Lion in Australia, so it was a logical move for Brooklyn,” he said.

“The decision has now been made to move the production and distribution of Brooklyn in Australia to Lion.”

Mr Pearce said Coopers is regularly assessing international contract brewing opportunities.
