So who will be raising their glass the highest this Australia Day? Will Brad, Jamie, Ross and their ever-expanding team at Stone & Wood make it two in a row for their all-conquering Pacific Ale? Can WA reclaim the throne with one of its podium placing beers from last year, Little Creatures Pale Ale or Feral Hop Hog? Or will something new come along and take us all by surprise?
You can find out from 12.40pm today as we start counting down the Hottest 100 Aussie Craft Beers of 2012 in the fifth annual poll run by The Local Taphouses. The number one will be revealed at 3pm.
As with the 2011 countdown, the poll has been run in conjunction with The Crafty Pint and Australian Brews News, meaning you can follow the results as they come in on any of our three sites. If you plan to follow them on Crafty, then bookmark this page or keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter pages as we reveal 100 to 11 in blocks of ten every ten minutes, then the top ten individually in five minute blocks.

See you for reaction when the results are in!
