Official Website

Each year since 2012, the GABS Beer, Cider & Food Festival has set out to create an unforgettable and fun experience that shares a love of craft beer and cider with as many people as possible.

The event has been described by influential US magazine The Beer Connoisseur as “one of the best beer festivals in the world” and in 2016 GABS attracted more than 32,000 people.

Featuring more than 300 beers and ciders, up to 80 specially brewed Festival Beers & Ciders, the thriving Liquorland Marketplace, Craft College plus the GABS Grand Carnivale entertainment program and more, there’s plenty to see and do at GABS!

GABS runs in five-hour blocks or ‘sessions’. During each session, a variety of unique entertainment is scheduled to surprise and delight punters. In past years, highlights have included an indoor Ferris Wheel almost 30 metres high, incredible circus and acrobatic acts, as well as an array of roving performers and a hugely entertaining 'house band'.

GABS is a true celebration of craft beer and cider creativity and diversity, as well as the stories behind the products and the craft breweries. For some, it’s an introduction, for others a journey, and for all, it’s an incredibly fun festival experience.
