In 1862, many South Australian colonials came to appreciate the taste of Thomas Cooper's Best Extra Stout and Sparkling Ale. Thomas had originally brewed these beverages to give to his ill wife for medicinal purposes. In 1881 however, due to his brew's rapidly increasing popularity, Thomas opened his first brewery at Leabrook in S.A. Coopers have since come to be regarded as a very distinctive brewery. Years after the death of Thomas Cooper, his company and its legacy have been handed down from generation to generation.

Conclusion

Coopers Brewery has proven that they are very suited to the Australian market, above all other markets. They have proven this with their marketing aims and strategies, which are visible in their advertising, which is very Australian-focussed. Coopers use of Australian slang in their advertisements has also proven popular (eg. "We've done the old man proud" is a slogan used in a Coopers advertisement promoting the ongoing legacy of Thomas Cooper). Coopers has the potential to be suited to most markets both Australian and overseas. Their suitability to a market is namely controlled by their marketing and promotion mix, and their target segment. It's easy to be suited to a "beer drinking Aussie market", when your advertising targets "beer drinking Aussies". Coopers however, has researched segments and developed products to suit a wide cross-section of different types of people, from young women (Heritage Premium Ale), to old men (Best Extra Stout). Coopers brewery have thoroughly proven their suitability to the Australian market, and they have also proven that they have what it takes to 'survive amongst the giants.'
