Beer brands are driving up their marketing efforts as the weather heats up and Thirsty Camel has identified the best time to convince fans to reach for a cold one.
The bottleshop’s search for Australia’s Beer O’Clock discovered that 53% of the 10,000 voters like to pop the top off a beer between 4pm and 6pm.
The best time to quench thirst for beer was 5pm, with the majority (15%) locking in the typical knock-off time.
When Beer O’Clock hits Corona was the brew of choice, with 22% voting for the brand.
Carlton Draught came second with 17% and 15% voted for a Pure Blonde.
Leah Grinter, Thirsty Camel’s marketing director, said: “Beer O’Clock has been an intangible notion that entered the nation’s consciousness years ago and that has since stimulated conversation in drinking holes across Australia.”
The poll ran from October 14 to November 10 and pulled in 9,759 votes with 38% of those from women. The majority of voters were based in Victoria (56%) followed by Tasmania (19.5%).

Meanwhile, Brookvale Union Brewery has buckled under the pressure of international Hindu leaders who called for the removal of Hindu gods from its bottles.
Locally, chair of the Community Relations Commission of NSW Stepan Kerkyasharian blasted the lables “insensitive”.
“If it’s meant to be a marketing ploy it is a totally insensitive. If it is meant to be light-hearted humour it falls flat,” he said.
“Mixing up the bodies and faces of male and female gods and superimposing the image of a cow, which is held sacred by all Hindus as the giver of life, could only be seen by a rational person as mischievous.”
The small NSW based brewery has since called on designers to create new labels for ginger beer and apple cider bottles.
