Most Australian beers are considered "non-premium". Notable exceptions are Crown Lager and Hahn

The main Victorian beers are the Fosters line and in NSW the Tooheys line. Most pubs will be licensed to sell either one of these lines of beer on tap - the main exception being Heineken.

Tasmanian beers are arguably the best beers brewed in Australia - mainly due to the superior water quality in the island state. Notably, Hahn, Cascade and James Boag's. Some will argue South Australian beer is a close second, but that is my no means the general consensus. Coopers is well worth drinking though.
