Beer is back. Last year, we saw the first lift in overall beer consumption in many years, with over 7 million Australians enjoying a brew in 2021 (according to Roy Morgan). That’s undoubtedly driven by an explosion of beer options, covering everything from sessionable lagers to wild beer and beer/wine mashups.
