Limited edition lager best served at sea

P&O Pacific Lager

Two iconic Australian brands, P&O Cruises Australia and Coopers Brewery are collaborating on a new beer – the P&O Pacific Lager.

Launched today, the limited-edition beer is described as pairing well with a wide range of food and good company and is available for guests onboard all P&O ships. It offers a refreshing citrusy flavour of lemon and lime, combined with subtle floral aromas and a clean, crisp bitterness.

P&O and Coopers engaged a hand-selected taste testing panel of P&O cruising enthusiasts known as The Adventurers to find a beer that encapsulated the spirit of P&O with a distinctively Pacific taste.

After visiting the Coopers Brewery in South Australia and sampling a wide variety of brews, the lager was crowned the standout winner, resulting in the P&O Pacific Lager.

Taste tester Ed Stuttard said, “Straight away, the lager reflected that laid-back feeling you get when you’re sailing on a P&O Cruise. It’s a really refreshing beer that you can easily imagine yourself sipping by the pool, enjoying while you’re watching a show or at one of the many bars and restaurants.”

Coopers Brewery national sales manager Heath Grosvenor said the cruise line collaboration with P&O Cruises was a first for the brewing company.

“It’s been an exciting journey to partner with another great Aussie brand and at a time when cruising is well and truly back on the holiday agenda,” he said.

The P&O Pacific Lager is only available onboard P&O Cruises, for just $9 per beer.
