NARRATOR: In 2021, to celebrate its 100th anniversary, The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod commissioned a custom brewed beer from their friends at Cape Cod Beer in Hyannis.
LISA OLIVER: In my multiple conversations with Beth and Todd, I thought all right I’m going to start planning this now. Todd Marcus is our brewmaster.
TODD MARCUS: So, first off I wanted to congratulate all of you. You look great for 100.
NARRATOR: Owners Todd and Beth Marcus set to work creating four unique micro brews and invited Coop employees to a private tasting where they would choose the commemorative brew.
MARCUS: Just after you swallow it, you’re going to breathe out through your nose because you want to get the full sensation of this beer.
NARRATOR: After receiving guidance from brewmaster Todd, the attendees sampled each beer then cast a secret ballot before enjoying a guided tour of the brewery.
When the votes were tallied, the winning brew was chosen and named No. 4 From the Vault.
Later every bottle was topped with a hand-dipped wax seal. Thanks to Cape Cod Beer and our esteemed panel of judges for their help in commemorating The Coop’s 100th anniversary. Here’s to the next 100 years.
