The Kaddy Top 50 Bestselling Australian Craft Beers of 2022

December 12, 2022

We're in a craft beer boom time.

With craft currently growing at 17.7% YoY, and the number of breweries in Australia now topping over 300, we're genuinely in the midst of a beer diversity golden age. One where, despite flat or declining overall beer consumption, drinkers are embracing the joy of more styles from more breweries than ever before.

Here at Kaddy, we're deep in the thick of this beer bonanza, with 3,400 beers currently listed on Kaddy Marketplace (almost double the number of listings from last year), with beer now making up 5 of the top 10 bestselling SKUs across the entire Marketplace.

This week, as we finish off 2022 and start gazing at 2023, we want to celebrate the beers that have really resonated with the 3,000+ venues that use the Kaddy Marketplace and have dived into the data for some answers.

Here then is the Kaddy Top 50 Bestselling Australian Craft Beers of 2022, showcasing what has moved across Australia's bottleshops, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, RSLs, boozy barber shops and every other licensed premises (we love them all) in 2022.

You'll notice we have broken this down into five different styles to help paint a more comprehensive picture than just a list dominated by lager, pale ale & IPA. Some beers also fit into multiple categories (like the Heaps Normal XPA), so we're choosing one that fits best.

What a great list of products this is too.
