Can anyone break into the top three that's usually sown up by Feral Brewing's Hop Hog, Stone & Wood Pacific Ale and Little Creatures Pale Ale? Will your favourite beers make the list? Which brewery will prove to be this year's surprise package? And will your entry be pulled out of the hat to earn you a stack of great beer?
The answers to all of those questions will soon be answered now that the Hottest 100 Australian Craft Beers poll is back. It is the seventh time the poll has been run since it was launched by The Local Taphouse, with the number of entries doubling in size each year. Once again, the Hottest 100 is being run in conjunction with The Crafty Pint and Australian Brews News with the countdown being revealed from 100 to 1 on Australia Day; this year, more than 50 other venues will be joining The Local Taphouses in hosting an event.

If you need to jog your memory in case you've forgotten some of the great beers released in 2014, you can check out the New Beers section of The Crafty Pint where we have detailed write ups of 100s of beers released for the first time this year. You can also check specific brewery pages and remind yourselves what they brew via the directory here.
On top of that, from this week through to the festive period, we will be running top tens from each state selected by beer experts from each state. And, if that's not enough, you could pick up a copy of the book The Crafty Pint's founder wrote this year: 150 Great Australian Beers – Your Guide to Craft Beer & Beyond; it would make a great Christmas present at the very least!!
So get your thinking caps on, recall the beers that wowed your palates in 2014 and vote away...
