Coopers Brewery will shout punters 15,000 free beers to try and get us back drinking at the pub following months of COVID-19 lockdowns.

The South Australian-owned brewery will shout beers at 335 pubs across the country as lockdowns continue to ease across most states.

During the depths of the lockdown, Coopers were just one of many breweries that were forced to pour kegs upon kegs of beer down the drain, with Coopers ditching 13,000 kegs worth.

Fellow brewer Lion Nathan reported being forced to pour out 90,000 kegs or 4.5 million litres of beer because of lockdowns in what must have been one of the most unaustralian things ever done.

Coopers Brewery’s managing director Dr Tim Cooper told The Advertiser that shouting beers is all about getting us out and about to support local once again.

“Now as the social restrictions are eased across the states and territories, we can all play a part in the recovery and enjoy a beer with friends in the process,” Dr Cooper said.
