Renowned as one of the world’s leading beer festivals, GABS (otherwise known as the Great Australasian Beer SpecTAPular) brings together the best breweries from New Zealand and Australia for a non-stop celebration of craft beer and cider.

Taking place in Auckland in two different sessions on 30 June, organisers expect over 35,000 people to attend, many of whom will be new to craft beer.

90 unique beers and ciders have been brewed especially for GABS Auckland. Many of those brewers will also be exhibiting at GABS Auckland as part of the Liquorland Marketplace, offering attendees the opportunity to chat with the team behind some of their favourite beers and ciders.

Some of the city’s best street food vendors will be dishing out tasty treats, including Dixie BBQ, Taco Loco, House of Dumplings, ​Puha & Pakeha and Judge Bao​.

New in 2018, punters will be able to ‘strut their putts’ at the Holey Moley Golf Club, or dance to their own beat at the Silent Disco. Reflecting the increasing crossover between craft beer and spirits, GABS has also teamed up with Irish distiller Jameson who will be highlighting their innovative Caskmates program, where whisky is aged in beer-seasoned barrels.

Education is also a core focus of the festival. At the Ariston Food & Drink Experience, attendees are taken on a gastronomic journey of food, beer and cider pairings. And the GABS Craft College panel discussions and masterclasses offer beer enthusiasts an opportunity to hear from some of the best in the business.

The good times will continue with the ever popular ‘GABS house band’ The Ale Capones wowing audiences.

Please note GABS Auckland is an 18+ only event.

GABS Beer, Cider & Food Fest presented by Liquorland is proudly supported by Ariston and Kegstar.
