Melbourne's giant beer, cider and fun festival is back for 2023, so get ready to get sipping.
Sure, it's an opportunity to go on a deep dive with pretty much every local, interstate and a fair few international brewers (we see you, Kiwi cousins in hops). But the serious drawcard of GABS each year involves the roster of never brewed before, never to be seen again beers and ciders made just for the fest.
The bonkers beer festival will showcase 1,200 fresh kegs from 120 different breweries. Served from 240 taps, the best way to sample as many of the creative brews as possible is to go for a taster paddle featuring five different beers at a time.
There are also masterclasses, roving entertainment, panel discussions, silent discos, eating competitions and even an air guitar championship. And to keep things on an even keel, food stalls and street food will keep the masses well-fed and energised throughout the festivities.
The festival is super popular and sessions sell out so get in quick and book now.
