If you’re a lover of all things craft beer, then you’ll be spoilt for choice at this awesome festival in Brisbane this weekend. GABS Festival, A.K.A The Great Australasian Beer SpecTAPular, is back to bring together the best breweries from Australia and New Zealand.
It’s a place where tasting paddles become the new buffet. Where you’ll be able to treat your palate to a huge selection of brews from local and interstate brands, all the while enjoying some epic eats and live entertainment.
This is one craft beer fest you won’t want to miss out on. Nab your tickets here.
GABS Festival will start off their massive 2022 tour in South Bank this Saturday, May 7, with two five-hour sessions to choose from: 11.30am – 4.30pm or 6.30pm – 11.30pm.
First and foremost, the cornerstone attraction at GABS would have to be the festival beers that are specially-brewed for the event. And this year, they’re truly raising the bar in a big way. Grab a tasting paddle and choose from 120 taps pouring frothy creations inspired by breakfast treats, savoury snacks, delicious desserts, classic cocktails and more. We’re talking peanut butter, coffee and earl gray tea flavoured brews, as well as chicken salt, pizza, gravy, fairy floss, bubblegum, sour gummi bears, and the list goes on.
This year’s line up of exhibitors ranges from new and emerging brands to the well-established. Local Queensland breweries you can expect to see are Balter, Black Hops, Ballistic, Green Beacon, Aether, Helios, Revel, Your Mates and Easy Times, just to name a few. They’ll be joined by interstate brew legends such as Colonial, Mountain Culture, One Drop, Little Creatures, Capital, Mountain Goat, Bentspoke and New Zealand’s Panhead Custom Ales.
Although, if you’re not a beer drinker, then not to worry. There will be something for everyone at GABS Festival, including plenty of wines, seltzers, gin, and cocktails.
You won’t just be filling up on bevvies either. You can expect a tasty selection of street food, as well as circus performances, silent disco, panel discussions, roaming bands and more. Your ticket will also include a souvenir GABS Festival Glass and a guide to all the beer tasting notes.
