Sydney has often proven a challenging proposition for the organisers of major beer festivals.
But GABS has shown the appetite is there; in 2019, the biggest ever single session in nine years of the festival took place in the city.
In 2020, the team planned to go bigger again before the event fell victim to COVID, but they're now set to fire up again – with an extra Friday night session – as the first winter GABS of 2021.
Over three sessions on May 7 and 8, you'll be able to look out for more than 100-plus Festival Beers and Ciders, brewery stalls, masterclasses, music and madcap mayhem aplenty in Halls 1, 2 and 3 of the Sydney Showgrounds.

Tickets are sale now, with the usual array of discounts for groups buying together and more besides.
Beer Club Bonus
We've got tickets to each Australian session to give away to members of The Crafty Pint's beer club, The Crafty Cabal. There are two ways to get hold of one:
- Existing members (excluding those whose winning tickets have been rolled over from 2020) can enter the giveaway in their member's area. Just choose the session you'd like to attend.
- We've also got ONE ticket for each session to give away to new signups. To grab one of those, head here to sign up and make sure you select the session you're after from the drop-down list.
UPDATE: Crafty Cabal tickets are now all allocated.
