Coopers may be South Australian owned and made, but it doesn't mean it's the only beer we want to drink. These days some restaurants, bars, and pubs are rivalling their wine lists with yeasty goodness from all over Australia and the world. So if you're a bit of a beer connoisseur let us know where you find the perfect pint, and why their beer list is so darn good.
The Wheatshef Hotel (or the Wheaty as it's often known) is one such place. They describe their list as "a distinctive, seasonal, style based beer list featuring quality micros and imported world classics with a bias towards full flavoured and bottle conditioned brews". Their beers don't just come in bottles, there is an impressive mix on tap as well. Sure you may not be able to pronounce the name of everything on their list, but don't let that stop you. This is a list of real beer, but it is Adelaide's best? Photo credit.
Another pub well known for it's beer is the Earl of Leicester Hotel. Along with their giant schnitzels they offer not only a large beer list, but also a Beer Legends board of fame. Make your way through their 85-long beer list, and when you reach the end you'll get a few perks plus your name up on their board of fame. There are quite a few well known local, overseas, and craft beers on the list, but you're sure to come across some for the first time.
The list at the Belgian Beer Cafe is a little different. Included on their list are quite a few flavoured beers that can tempt even the non-beer drinker. But not all the beers are fruity flavours like strawberry and cherry, you'll find full bodied brews here as well. Grab a big glass and start sampling the list.
