Artisan beer, gourmet food & live entertainment
The Great Australasian Beer SpecTAPular (GABS) is a beer festival with a difference. The three day event celebrates the diversity and creativity of craft beer. with some of the best breweries from Australia and around the world brewing more than 100 new beers specifically for the event.

The Great Australasian Beer SpecTAPular began in 2012, when the owners of the local Taphouse pubs in Melbourne and Sydney wanted to offer a large variety of exclusive new release beers along with fantastic gourmet food, educational seminars and live entertainment.

The culmination of this idea was the Great Australian Beer SpecTAPular.

In its first year, GABS attracted almost 11,000 people from around Australia, New Zealand, Europe and Asia.

Today is known and loved for specialising in exceptional craft beers, food events and great hospitality.

They decided to take a little bit of Melbourne to Sydney and opened the local Taphouse in Darlinghurst. Since then they have received numerous awards and are well known as the best specialty beer venue in Australia.

Whilst the venues hold more than 200 events every year, it is the Great Australian Beer SpecTAPular that is the most famous and best loved event.

If you love all things to do with beer, you are really going to enjoy this event; there are over 60 brewery and industry related exhibitors, along with gourmet food stands, free educational seminars and of course, the world-famous live entertainment.

The event will be held at the Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton, Melbourne.
