From the Book: Beer in Melbourne
Photo by patrickkeane/Flickr.com, Locals prefer Victoria Bitter or Carlton Draught
Home to Carlton and United Breweries, Australia actively exports Foster's Lager, but locals prefer Victoria Bitter (VB), Crown, or Carlton Draught. With a pub seemingly on every major street corner in Melbourne, prices are relatively low (especially on tap), and tipping isn't required. Learn the terminology: "a shout" means you're buying the round, and "lite" actually means low-alcohol, not low-calorie.

Where to Drink: You can pick up a "slab" of 24 cans for around a A$1 per can at massive alcohol supermarkets like Dan Murphy. Or drink it on tap at Beer DeLuxe, James Squire Brewhouse, and the Local Taphouse.

Average price for a pint: A$5
