Coopers launches Bible Society beer



Quote:
Bible Society Australia has teamed up with Coopers Brewery for the launch of a commemorative Coopers Premium Light beer.

Available from Coopers’ usual stockists, the limited edition beer marks the 200th anniversary of the Bible Society Australia, which distributes, translates and encourages active engagement with the world’s best-selling book.

“As brewers we consider that beer is the alcoholic beverage of moderation, and clearly light beer is an effective way to combine flavour and promote moderation,” said Coopers managing director Tim Cooper.

“Coincidentally, the slogan for the Bible Society is ‘Live Light’, so the choice of Coopers Light for the celebratory can made elegant good sense.”


Quote:
Bible Society Australia CEO Greg Clarke said Coopers Foundation has been a strong supporter of its work, in particular the provision of bibles for the defence forces.

“I hope Australians enjoy a chance to celebrate the fact that we are here for good!” he said.

According to Eternity News, there were 10,000 cartons released of the beer emblazoned with a bible verse.

Hey, they're just 'encouraging engagement' - with beer.

Cross-brand advertising is the kind commercial activity that many organisations go in for these days. Chill out and have a BibleLite - for surely it is the holy piss of our Lard.

I suppose I could go to a pub, drink some Jesus Light, and then consecrate the urinal with holy water.

Well, I don't see the humour in it. They can keep their religion outta my face. More subtle than smallpox-infested blankets given to the indigenous, but the same basic idea.

A lager, a light lager. Take from that what one will.

New Matilda also had a fund-raising arrangement with a brewer to sell various soft drinks and at least one beer. This caused howls of outrage from sections of the New Matilda readership.

Coopers beer allies with the Bible Society:

Liberal MPs in marriage equality debate sponsored by Coopers beer, Bible Society

Quote:
...

Titled "Keeping it Light", the video is part of a joint campaign between the Adelaide brewer and Bible Society Australia "to reach even more Australians with God's word".

"Australia's national conversation has become fraught with shallowness and contempt for those who have a differing opinion," states the campaign's website.

"To speak into this, Bible Society Australia has teamed up with Coopers Premium Light to ask Australians to try 'Keeping it Light' - a creative campaign to reach even more Australians with God's word - and this time we're doing so in a rather unexpected way."

...

The partnership between the brewer and Christian non-profit organisation coincides with Bible Society Australia's 200th birthday.

Coopers has produced 10,000 cases of beer printed with Bible verses as part of the deal.

Tim Cooper, a fifth-generation Cooper and managing director of the company, said both brewing and the Bible boasted long histories.

"Part and parcel of doing a good job is reflecting on the gifts that we have and using them to God's best purpose," he said.
