GABS Festival Beer and Cider Registrations Now Open
They’re the beating heart of GABS Beer, Cider & Food Fest.
Up to 180 new and unique brews created especially for the event by breweries and cideries across Australia, New Zealand and around the world. It’s quite possibly the most talked-about taplist of the year, sparking serious media coverage and social media debate. Many ‘Festival Beers & Ciders’ also go on to greater acclaim and recognition, and of course all are eligible to win the highly coveted People’s Choice Award.
And in 2019, we invite you to be part of the fun!
Registrations are now open for GABS 2019 Festival Beers & Ciders (until 28 Jan or until capacity reached). The earlier you register, the more likely we can feature your Festival Beer or Cider in long-lead media coverage… so don’t delay!
Register here for January 28, 2019.
We highly recommend starting your planning as early as possible. Download our handy cheat sheet here to know what info you need. Review this info page on keg rates, quantities, embargos and deadlines. Meet with your team (eg. brewing / marketing) and develop your idea. Remember that it has to be a new brew never before released.
Once you have all the info, visit here to register online. Regos are open from 14 to 28 January (or until capacity is reached).
We’ll review all registrations and send confirmations on Monday February 4.
In your confirmation, we’ll advise keg quantities, rates, and delivery dates.
You brew and keg the beer or cider, and deliver to our warehouse.
We do the rest!
