GABS Hottest 100 Party At Handle Bar

Join Bendigo Beer at Handle Bar as the results of the GABS Hottest 100 Craft Beers are announced.

What is the GABS H100?

The GABS Hottest 100 Australian Craft Beers (GABS H100) poll started in 2008 at the Local Taphouse in StKilda. It was a fun exercise where a small group of beer lovers would vote on their favourite beers of the year. As the name suggests, the poll was inspired by the Triple-J Hottest 100.

More than a decade later, the GABS H100 has grown into a national poll, with another held in New Zealand. Upwards of 40,000 people now cast their vote in the poll and it receives national attention in the mainstream media.

The beers featured have changed a lot in the 10+ years since it began and the results generate a lot of debate. But, for better or worse, no one can argue that the day of the countdown is the biggest day of the year for beer in Australia.
