Crack one open Brisbane, GABS is back (and we're giving away tickets)

Buckle up, beer lovers, GABS Craft Beer and Cider Festival is going big for its tenth anniversary!

GABS Festival brings together the best breweries from Australia and New Zealand for a showcase celebration of craft beer and cider. After successful shows in both Sydney and Melbourne earlier this year, the GABS team has their sights set on the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre on Saturday, June 12. 

This will be the second brewtiful Brisbane GABS event, and it is shaping up to be a big one: the festival will feature 120 unique beers brewed specially for GABS (some of which will go on to be icons, like Two Birds’ infamous taco beer!) as well as your favourite craft brews plus food trucks, live music and entertainment, brewer talks and guided tastings. 

Whilst beer and cider will well and truly have the spotlight, keep an eye out for the interactive 19 Crimes wine bar and the Jameson Caskmates boilermaker bar to round off the day (because finishing a day of beers with whiskey is always a great idea!). There’ll be local favourite food trucks on hand, too, with plenty of tasty bites for pairing with your brews.

This year, GABS will be split into two sessions, from 11:30am to 4:30pm and from 6:30pm to 11:30 pm. Tickets are available here OR you can try your luck in our giveaway of SIX tickets – head to this Instagram post to learn more and enter!
