Deliveroo reveals Brits favourite beers across the country

The UK Beer Barometer

  • Deliveroo uncovers the most popular beers across the UK
  • Each city varies in its most popular choice, uncovering a huge divide across the nation
  • The food delivery company’s alcohol service launched one year ago


Are you in the mood to toast International Beer Day on 4th August, with an ice-cold bevvy? Deliveroo, the on-demand food delivery service, is revealing how Brits disagree on the best brew, to quench their thirst, heading into the weekend.


As part of Deliveroo’s UK Beer Barometer for 2017, it has been revealed that cities across the country differ in their opinion of what is the best, highlighting how divided the nation has become when it comes to their choice of ale.


Birmingham, the famed curry capital of the UK favours Asian brewed Tiger Beer – often cited as the perfect companion to Indian cuisine – with Mancunians loving a cooling Mexican Corona.


Down in the south-west, Bristolians are opting for a classic Heineken – the popular lager from Amsterdam – and Londoners living up to their stylish reputation, favouring the posh Italian beer, Peroni. It seems that Leeds and Cambridge have more traditional tastes with both cities opting for craft beer as their brew of choice.


Most popular beers being ordered on Deliveroo right now:


Location Vendor Beer
Birmingham Heineken’s Brew House Tiger Beer
London Alcohol Rack Peroni
Brighton Bison Beer The Kernel – Pale Ale
Cambridge Cambridge Wine Merchants Beavertown Selection
Bristol Heineken’s Brew House Heineken Lager
Nottingham Heineken’s Brew House Sol Lager
Cardiff Heineken’s Brew House Amstel Lager
Leeds BrewDog Dead Pony Club
Oxford Oxford Bottle Shop Fosters
Manchester The Drink Factory Corona


Deliveroo’s alcohol delivery service works identically to Deliveroo’s food delivery; nearby riders collect orders from staff at bars and wine shops and deliver the order to customers, in an average of just 20 minutes.

A spokesperson for Deliveroo said “What better way to celebrate International Beer Day than toasting with your town’s favourite beer?

“At Deliveroo we work with over 15,000 restaurant and drink partners in the UK so that there is always something to suit your mood and as our top beer list shows, our breadth of choice is great as no one can seem to agree on what the best beer is.”
