Events Vote in the GABS Hottest 100 Aussie Craft Beers of 2019

Vote in the GABS Hottest 100 Aussie Craft Beers of 2019
11:59pm 17 Jan, 2020

It's been another epic year for beer in Australia, one that truly has swung from the sublime to the ridiculous.

And, as it draws to a close, that means it's time for the twelfth Hottest 100 Aussie Craft Beers poll.

The GABS-run poll attracted 31,000 voters last time around and the new owners will be hoping to surpass that this time around.

You can head here to cast your vote with prizes for one lucky voter drawn at random including tickets for you and ten mates to your nearest GABS Craft Beer & Cider Festival in 2020, a mixed case of 24 of the Hottest 100 beers from Dan Murphy's, plus a lifetime Crafty Cabal membership.

If you'd like a refresher of some of the best new releases of 2019, you can check out our Best New Beers Of 2019 series – or take a trip down Memory Lane with The Beers Of The 2010s.

The rules remain the same as in previous years, both for voters and the beers and brewers that are eligible. The latter includes that growing band of brands now owned by multinationals.

So now it's up to you to decide who will scale the heights; voting closes at 11.59pm on January 17. 

Will Balter retain top spot or, like other breweries that have sold, see their beers slide down the list? 

Will you be swayed by the breweries telling you which of their beers to vote for or the paid promotions that have become a growing part of the poll in recent years?

Will you vote solely for new releases, knowing the breakout lists of new entries, indie beers and so on offer more chance for lesser known beers and breweries to register?

Who will surprise people by appearing as if from nowhere in the top 100?

And will you treat the results when they're announced on January 25 with joy, anger or a shrug of the shoulders?

So many questions, so many beers, and only five that you can vote for...
