Australia has a reputation as an expensive destination - and many locals will agree. As one of the world's highest consumers of beer per capita, the price of beer has always been a hot topic. While the consumption of beer across the country has dipped in recent months, with consumers opting for wine, the indicator is none the less an important one.
This FACT indicates the average cost of a pint of beer at a neighbourhood bar or pub in each Australian capital city. Each city's score is based on prices entered by users on Expatistan.com, the score is then based on the average. For this reason, and given the quality of nature of this data set, the numbers should be used with caution.
