The GABS Hottest 100 Winners for 2021

GABS Hottest 100 Aussie Craft Beers 2022What is the GABS Hottest 100?

Since it started in 2008, the GABS (Great Australasian Beer Spectapular) Hottest 100 Craft Beer people’s choice poll has revealed the consumer trends and breweries shaping the Australian craft beer landscape.

How does it work?

Each year, craft beer loving consumers are asked to select, in order of preference, their five favourite craft beers of the year. Sounds like it should be a simple process right? Well when you have hundreds of breweries from across Australia and thousands of incredible craft beers to choose, from it can be an agonising and challenging task.

In last year’s campaign, nearly 40,000 voters cast five votes each as Canberra’s Bentspoke Brewing Co’s Crankshaft IPA took out top spot!

How is it celebrated?

The day is celebrated in pubs and brewhouses all around the country with the results setting the beer world into overdrive. “In craft beer circles it’s on par with the Melbourne Cup,” is how Australian Brews News describes countdown day.

This year winners were announced live on Saturday 22nd January, 2022.
