    Newcastle Beer Dinner with Dr Tim Cooper
    6 Beers and a 5 course dinner with Dr Tim Cooper
    Among home brewers Coopers are one of the legendry names in the industry, so apart from having a good feed and way too much good beer, here is your chance to put your questions to the man who knows all the answers.

    Thursday 7th April kicking off at 6:30 PM
    Albion Hotel
    72 Hannell St
    Wickham 2293

    Coopers are keen to promote their new range of beers so the night kicks off with
    Coopers Clear
    Starter - Salmon Ceuiche
    62 Pilsner
    1ST Course - Sticky Hoi Sin Berkshire Pork Belly with Pine/Chilli/Coriander Salsa
    Coopers Pale Ale (Draught)
    2ND Course - Lamb Loin Wellington with Coopers Sparkling Ale Jus & Broccolini
    Coopers Sparkling Ale (Draught)
    3Rd Course Slow Braised Wagyu Beef Cheeks with Celeriac Remoulade + Beetroot
    Coopers Vintage Ale 2010 (Draught)
    Dessert Dark Chocolate Tartlet with Parsnip and Coopers Stout Ice Cream
    Coopers Best Extra Stout.

    You can see that the Albion offers a good range of Coopers on tap including the Vintage so if you feel compelled to keep drinking Im sure you will find something to suit your tastes. Please make arrangements to get home safely we want to see you at the next event.

    Just bought my tickets for this dinner, it's sizing up to be a good event. I'm getting exited looking forward to seeing what Dr Tim has to say.


    Who else is going to this ?

    Looks like about 30 or so going through contacts on AHB, local club and the shop, so far.
    The Albion has a great little restraint and they have some accommodation so it might be worth booking a room if youre coming from out of town.
    I just changed the name of the thread, put the Newcastle bit in.
    Should be a great night

    Any time Dr Tim Cooper comes to Perth for a dinner I am there. Unfortunatly Newcastle is a bit far away at this point in time. How big is the venue and how many people would it take for a sell out?

    The restaurant seats 130 people, they have regular events, lots of good wine nights and the occasional beer night. I don't think they will have any trouble filling the venue from their own mailing list.

    Hint don't dick around if you want to go Book Now, when Glen Cooper was here last year that one sold out very quickly.

    Well it was a ripper of a night, the food was sensational the beer excellent as you would expect.
    Dr Tim said he has a great time and hoped it would become an annual event, good to see so many home brewers there as well as people from the trade, both local micros and other assorted beer heads.
    If you have any pictures please post them here.
    Thanks to all who helped make it such a great night.
    Anyone seen Max? Not sure if he survived.

    I'd be more concerned about Dr Tim surviving! :lol:

    I should be able to get some pictures up from my mate Eric. I put pics up as soon as I get my hand on them.
    I think we left about 1ish but then again I was pretty drunk for some reason ;-)
    Great night out with good food and matched beers. My pick for the best match would have been the Beef cheek with the vintage ale that was just fabulous!
    I think everyone had a good time that night from staff to guests as well as Tim. I think he liked the coopers cake my friend Donna made a lot, hehe.
    Would be great to make it an annual thing. So next year the 7th of April then. Works for me ;-)
