Coopers Pale Ale is the flagship beer for Coopers Brewery. First brewed in the early 20th century and originally named 'Light Dinner Ale', the beer was a popular milder tasting beer. Australia's taste in beer changed by the 1950's and Ales were not selling well, so Coopers Brewery dropped the beer in favour of brewing lighter tasting lagers.

The mid 1980's craft beer revolution started and peoples taste in beer changed, heavier tasting traditional beers came back in to vogue. Coopers jumped on the trend and reintroduced the beer but renamed as 'Coopers Original Pale Ale'. Though slow to take off its popularity grew and now it has become the most popular Ale in Australia.
