The annual extravaganza that is GABS will once again close out Melbourne's Good Beer Week in 2019.
Held over five sessions in one of Melbourne's most iconic buildings, the Royal Exhibition Building, GABS Melbourne is a beer festival like no other. Attendees will have the chance to try out close to 180 unique festival beers and ciders brewed especially for the event, as well as 300-plus more from the breweries and cider makers across Australia and New Zealand.
Of course, the beer is only part of the show with GABS, which combines all manner of entertainment too, including street food, circus and sideshow acts, roving bands and the Stomping Ground Silent Disco.
There will also be the chance to get a bird's eye view of the festival atop the Yenda Wheel of Beer and to learn from the best at the Mornington Peninsula Brewery Craft College and Ariston Food & Drink Experience.
Tickets for GABS Brisbane go on sale on March 15, 2019, and we've got a big giveaway running before then too (see below).
CRAFTY CABAL BONUS
Once again, we've hooked up with the GABS team to create a monster prize pool for members of The Crafty Cabal, our beer lovers bonus scheme. We've got tickets available for every single session in Australia. NB: ALL TICKETS TO GABS HAVE NOW BEEN DRAWN AND THE LUCKY WINNERS HAVE BEEN NOTIFIED
- Existing Cabalistas can head to their member's area and choose which session they'd like to attend. We'll pick winners before tickets go on sale for each city's GABS so those that miss out can jump straight in when sales open.
- Or you can get your hands on a ticket as a welcome bonus by heading here and selecting the appropriate option from the drop-down list when signing up.
The Crafty Cabal is perhaps best described as The Crafty Pint's version of a community radio's subscription service: sign up as a supporter and gain access to deals and offers at breweries and venues across the country, awesome competitions, exclusive events and more, all while helping an independent, craft beer-loving business grow!
