Australia’s long love affair with quality beer is as strong as ever? Don’t believe us, pop down to your local pub, or wander the aisles of your local bottleshop. We guarantee you will find endless options for craft beer. Although, with such a rapidly growing industry, there seem to be too many to choose from. Thankfully, the GABS Hottest 100 Craft Beer people’s choice poll has been revealed.
The poll comprised 311 breweries, 2,140 different beers, and over 60,000 registered to vote. If that isn’t an indication of craft beer growth, we’re stumped. Even our PM, Anthony Albanese, jumped on board to let everybody know what his favourite drop of the year was. P.S., it’s Willie The Boatman’s Albo Ale.
To help you, we’ve narrowed down the best beers in your state. So the next time you’re thirsty, reach for one of these.
