Didn’t find your favourite beer?

We rely on all New Zealand breweries to ensure their eligible beers are registered. If a beer you want to vote for is not on the list, or you think a beer that is on the list shouldn't be there, let us know and we’ll investigate promptly.


The fine print


Only one vote (for five different beers) is permitted per person, and a valid email address must be submitted for each vote to be counted. GABS reserves the right to remove votes, or voting behaviour, that appear to break this rule, be manufactured, or we deem to be false or not in the spirit of the poll. Voting closes at 11.59pm NZDT on Monday 29 January 2018.


Beers must have been brewed in New Zealand and sold in kegs, cans or bottles in the 2017 calendar year. 


New Zealand beer brands deemed by GABS as ‘non-craft’ (eg. Steinlager) are ineligible. International craft brands brewed in New Zealand (eg. Lagunitas), are also ineligible. 


New Zealand craft brands brewed by multinational companies or supermarket chains (eg. Boundary Road Brewery, Tuatara, Emerson’s, Panhead Custom Ales or Monteith’s) are eligible.


No brands or breweries other than GABS are permitted to offer prizes, incentives or inducements of any value in exchange for votes for beers, or promote the poll in a way that could be perceived as such. Brands and breweries are not permitted to ask for proof of votes. 

Any breaches of the above terms, intentional or otherwise, will lead to the brand/brewery and/or voter being disqualified. GABS’ decision on all matters related to the integrity of the poll is final and no correspondence will be entered into.
