REVEALED: SA’s biggest beer-loving suburbs ranked.

A new study has revealed where South Australians are the most thirsty for a beer, as they indulge in a post-work locally brewed cold one.

South Aussies are lucky. We’ve got ample local breweries that dish out the goods so that we can indulge in a post-work cold one. You can almost hear the peeling back of the can tab now, can’t you?

New data from delivery service Jimmy Brings reveals where Australians are the most thirsty for a frothy one.

In South Australia, our capital city of Adelaide tops the list by a long shot, with the thirstiest drinkers in Rundle Mall, Hutt Street, Halifax Street, Station Arcade, Adelaide BC, City West Campus and Sturt Street.

More broadly, taking the crown when it comes to the highest proportion of beer orders in Australia was Geelong, making up 40.6% of drink sales in the area. Followed closely by Newcastle (39.7%) and Launceston (38.2%). 

Australians are not just beer drinkers; they are beer connoisseurs. Enjoying timeless Aussie classics like ‘XXXX Gold’, unique craft brews like ‘Newstead Coastal Ale’ and fruity refreshments like ‘Sungazer Watermelon Flavoured’, Australians have range when it comes to their beer beverages.

Head of Jimmy Brings, Luke Calavassy says demand for beer is expected to continue growing in 2023, particularly in categories such as ginger beer and fruity beer, based on recent sales results and new consumers entering the category. 

“Australian drinking preferences constantly evolve and in recent years, we have seen this across the beer category. Our data is showing us that customers are more adventurous with their beer selections, and willing to try something new. There has been a lot of innovation across the beer category recently and we are seeing customers really get behind the new options available to them” Calavassy says.

In the race for top spot across the capital cities, Brisbane nabbed first place. Followed closely by Melbourne and, in third place, Sydney.
