Australians’ drinking habits distilled into 100 glasses
In any given four-week period last year, Australian adults drank just over 426 million glasses of alcohol between them, the latest data from Roy Morgan Research reveals. While this may seem like an ocean of liquor at first glance, it actually translates to an average 23 glasses per person per four weeks. But how much of that is beer, how much is wine and how much is spirits? As we revealed recently, a higher proportion of Australians 18+ drink wine than beer in an average four weeks, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that a greater volume of wine than beer is consumed.
