Events GABS Hottest 100 Kiwi Craft Beers Countdown

GABS Hottest 100 Kiwi Craft Beers Countdown
10:30am 3 Feb, 2018

A week on from Balter taking the top spot in the Aussie countdown with its XPA, the GABS Hottest 100 Beers turns its attention to New Zealand's craft beer industry.

It's the second time the Kiwi poll has been run. Last year saw Panhead's Supercharger take top spot ahead of Epic's Hop Zombie and Garage Project's since retired Death From Above.

Here's how you can follow the 2017 countdown as it happens:

  • Results will be revealed from 100 to one on the GABS website here from 12.30pm NZDT
  • They will be announced initially in batches of ten, then individually from ten to one – see timings below
  • If you're in Auckland, there's an official countdown party at The Lumsden Freehouse
  • And the organisers have set up a social screen here to share photos from the day; there's two tickets for GABS Auckland up for grabs for one Instagram shot tagged #Hottest100Beers

Once the results are announced, we'll publish the top 100 table in our follow up to last year's Results article

We'll follow that with another Analysis piece and, early next week, interviews with some of those behind this year's big stories courtesy of Our Man In NZ, Jono Galuszka, kicking off his coverage of the Kiwi beer scene for us in 2018.
