It’s that time of year again when craft beer drinkers across the country get to vote for their five best tasting beers of 2021 in the GABS Hottest 100 Aussie Craft Beers People Choice Poll!

It’s fair to say that the craft beer industry has truly shown their mettle during another pandemic affected year. One only needs to take a look at the plethora of brilliant choice in your local bottle shop to appreciate that the industry has come through 2021 booming, so narrowing the selection down to just five favourites could be an agonising task for beer lovers!

In true Aussie spirit we love breaking records, especially when it comes to great beer. Last year, nearly 200,000 votes were cast by close to 40,000 consumers as Bentspoke’s Crankshaft IPA took out the #1 spot on the Hottest 100 podium and Capital Brewing’s XPA took the honours of best new beer of 2020. In testament to just how astute our beer drinkers are, after 4 years on the GABS Hottest 100 podium, Crankshaft recently received global recognition taking out a gold medal in the world’s longest running prestigious international beer awards.

This poll is all about the consumer. Beer enthusiasts can select from nominations by hundreds of Aussie breweries and if they can’t find that one drop they loved in 2021, they can even nominate it themselves to make their vote count. Keeping in the spirit of the hottest 100, all voters can join live countdown parties around the country on 22 January whilst enjoying their favourite beverage. All voters also qualify for the draw to win a share of 100 tickets to any GABS Festival in 2022.

Voting officially opens on Wednesday 8 December at
