The mega beer fest is back for another foamy frolic

The GABS Beer, Cider and Food Fest, presented by Dan Murphy's, was dreamt up by the Local Taphouse owners Steve Jeffares and Guy Greenstone over a drink in 2011. Now, the beer and cider extravaganza is back for another year at Carlton's Royal Exhibition Building. In addition to the beer stalls from local and international brewers, the SpecTAPular beer festival will also feature 180 different festival beers on tap – beers brewed exclusively for the festival – which is the most the festival has ever had.

The venue will be packed with shipping containers serving up delicious brews and ales, as well as expert brewers to chat to. There will also be plenty of festival entertainment (think acrobats, a ferris wheel and roving performers) and beer-friendly street food to feast upon. Last but not least, we will be there hosting the Time Out Concierge and beer tours in conjunction with Dave's Brewery Tours. Come join us for a tasting tour of GABS 2017 and grab a copy of Time Out's annual Pub Issue.

The GABS Beer, Cider and Food Fest is super popular so get in early to lock in your preferred session. Tickets are selling fast!
