Australia is one of the countries were craft beer industry is growing and it´s growing fast. The tradition of craft beer in Australia starts around '70s, following the boom in North America.
Today, according to a recent study made by The Beer Cartel the interest in craft beer began with Pale Ales styles and then it transformed to an increasing interest in India Pale Ale. They state that “IPAs and its higher strength brothers, the Double & Imperial IPA are becoming widespread, with 81% of craft beer drinkers enjoying IPAs”.
Coming from this study, made during 2019, among the most popular craft beers styles we find:
1. Pale Ale
7. New England IPA
10. Belgian Ale
Furthermore, they have found out that “…Craft beer is the only segment of the Australian beer market which is in continuous growth, with overall consumption of beer and alcohol in
decline”. On the lead, there is Balter’s Craft Brewery and the number one in Australia, for two years in a row. Followed by Bent Spoke and Stone Wood in third place.
