Insight of the Day: Has the fizz gone out Australia's craft beer industry?

Australia's craft beer industry is facing some challenges. Here's a summary of the reasons mentioned:

  • Rising costs: This includes ingredients, production, and possibly even labor costs.

  • Saturated market: There are many craft breweries now, making it more competitive for each one to stand out and get customers.

  • Cost of living crisis: People might be cutting back on discretionary spending, including craft beer, due to the rising cost of living.

  • Power of big supermarket chains: These chains may give less shelf space to craft beers compared to established brands, making it harder for smaller breweries to reach customers.

The impact of these challenges is brewers closing down or being acquired by larger companies.
