One of the things that makes GABS unique is the ‘Festival Beers & Ciders’ brewed especially for GABS each year. It’s a true celebration of craft beer and cider’s creativity and diversity.

In 2017, we’re introducing a third ‘Kegtainer’ bar, giving us capacity to serve up to 180 Festival Beers & Ciders from Australia, New Zealand and around the world.

Please note that there is a limited allocation of each Festival Beer & Cider for each session. Some session allocations may run out but the beer or cider will be back for the next session. Check the GABS Official App during the event for updates of which beers and ciders have sold out.
