Happy birthday to us?! Yes! It’s been 1 year since we opened the taps for Cooper’s Family Brewing and it has been wonderful. We’ve had some great beers and some experimentation that taught us that great beer doesn’t grow on trees…
First, we want to thank everyone who has supported the brewery or anyone who ventured out to try one of the many brews we’ve released. Today we are brewing our 93rd batch of beer which entails 88 unique recipes covering 53 different styles of beer! We wanted to make sure that our first year was a year to learn what works and how to consistently make great beer. We turned a concrete box into a brewery that is the start to something great!
What were some of the styles of beers we have made that you’ve liked?
To celebrate we brewed a special anniversary stout that has been conditioning for nearly 6 months waiting for this day!
Maritime Mama’s Milestone Stout
Imperial stout, 11.3 %ABV, 65 IBUs
The Brewery’s 1 year anniversary required the making of a very special beer… An Imperial stout brewed with a complex blend of specialty malts on top of a rich foundation of English Marris Otter. The beer was conditioned for 3 months before being steeped with loads of Italian coffee and cacao nibs. Then aged even longer to allow its decadent flavors to merry together into a fantastically smooth high ABV stout. A beer worthy for celebration of our amazing first year as a brewery! May many more years be in our future!!
