After three month’s work and more than $1 million expenditure, the upgrade of one of the Adelaide Airport’s most popular destinations, the Coopers Alehouse, opened yesterday.
The layout is one of a new generation of Coopers Alehouses that has been under development over the past 12 months.
The new design features a large open lounge and dining area with views across Adelaide to the Adelaide Hills. It features a broad selection of Coopers products, along with its international partner beers and a new menu that incorporates fresh South Australian produce.
It will also have extended trading hours, from 6 am until after the last flights leave at 11 pm.
Coopers Sales and Marketing Director, Cam Pearce, said Coopers and operating partner Delaware North Companies Australia utilised the services of architects Studio Gram and brand development firm Band for the project.
Delaware has nine food and beverage outlets at the Adelaide Airport, including the Coopers Alehouse.
The original Coopers Alehouse at the airport opened in 2005 with the opening of the new Adelaide Airport terminal.
According to Chief Operating Officer for Delaware North, Kieran Fitzpatrick, trading at the Alehouse in the week since the refurbishment had been completed had shown a significant uplift and he expected this would increase as the upgraded venue became better known.
