Craft beer aficionados are getting excited as Australia’s biggest celebration of craft beer, the Great Australasian Beer Spectapular (GABS), is back in Sydney for 2022.
Known as one of the world’s leading beer experiences, GABS brings together the best breweries from Australia and New Zealand for a whirlwind craft beer carnival.
GABS is coming to Darling Harbor’s International Convention and Exhibition Center (ICC) GABS on Friday and Saturday May 20-21.
The event will feature the cornerstone attraction, festival beers, brewed exclusively for the festival.
Served by three huge container bars, each with 120 taps, the best way to experience these amazing creations is to grab a sample paddle and order five different tasters at once.
Brewers have once again pushed all the boundaries of what is possible with beer brewing and this year’s lineup promises to be a true delight.
There are nearly 120 concoctions inspired by everything from breakfast treats, savory snacks, fruity goodness, delicious desserts, classic cocktails, and more.
There is something for everyone on the menu.
