Australia's drinking culture has left multiple bars in the small town of Kazan empty after thousands of Australians drunk them dry.

Despite the World Cup loss 2:1 to France, Australians were still in good spirits with thousands hitting the streets last week to party into early hours of the morning, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.

It made for one of the busiest nights seen in the city centre, with 450 litres of beer gone in one night.

Evgeny, the head bartender at Gudini bar told the Sydney Morning Herald  he had to replenish his entire stock as they drunk every last drop of amber in his pub.

"Australian guys are like Russians, we are the same because we are drinking too much. In the morning, we did not have any beer in the pub. All the beer was drunk," Evgeny said.

 "It was so busy, it was so much fun because a lot of Australian people came into our pub and drank all night. I don't know exactly how many glasses of beer I poured last night but I think it was 1 million."

He said bartenders in the area love the Australians, saying they're always laughing and smiling.

There are currently huge numbers of Australian fans in Kazan, which is also hosting the national teams of Colombia and Japan for their upcoming World Cup games.
