GABS Hottest 100 Aussie Craft Beers of the Year

The GABS 'Hottest 100 Aussie Craft Beers of the Year' poll began as a bit of fun in January 2008 at The Local Taphouse beer bars in Melbourne and Sydney, the home of the very first GABS beer festival in 2011. Staff and customers voted for their favourite five Australian craft beers of the year and the resultant list of 100 beers was jokingly called the "hottest 100 Aussie craft beers of the year" after the famous Triple J Hottest 100 songs annual poll. Now supported by beer publications Crafty Pint and Australian Brews News, the annual beer poll attracts thousands of beer fans around the country[1] who vote for their favourite Australian craft beers each year.

On the last Saturday of January, the results are counted down at The Local Taphouse in St Kilda, and other official venues around the country and online.
