After nearly two years, brewers & craft beer lovers were finally able to celebrate their passion at the GABS Craft Beer Festival at Sydney Olympic Park over the weekend.
The taps were flowing with beer being poured at 387 ml per second through the event! Over 11,000 people joined their friends to sample the 110 festival beers, dine on delicious food from the
myriad of amazing food trucks and enjoy the atmosphere and entertainment of one of the ‘best beer festivals in the world.’
The GABS team quickly adapted to the new restrictions imposed just a day before the event, adding an extra 1500 seats and ensuring masks for all the hospitality staff.
Despite there being no singing and dancing allowed there was no shortage of entertainment with visitors enjoying live music, the GABS Academy with food & beer pairing sessions, live comedy sets and they could even get a haircut at the on site barber.
There was something for everyone, with a selection of non-beer options including seltzers, a wine bar, and no-alcohol options.
It was obvious that people were very happy to be there – Burleigh Brewing stating they had had the “best weekend”, beer fans like Brew Boy Josh saying “what a night at GABS! So good to be back at a beer festival after far too long” and The Beer Selfie saying “Wow! What an amazing event….Thank you GABS for putting on this amazing event over the weekend, great choice of beer and food truck food. Couldn’t recommend this event more, such a great night out!”
The GABS Team is now gearing up for the Melbourne event which runs from 21-23rd May at the Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre (MCEC) – www.gabsfestival.com.
