GABS Craft Beer & Cider Festival has collaborated with craft brewers to create a limited-edition six-pack ahead of the festival in November.
Event Director Craig Williams described the pack as “a taste of the GABS experience to be enjoyed in the comfort of your own home”.
Featured beers include a salt and vinegar sour from Your Mates Brewing Co (QLD), a salted caramel popcorn ale from Bright Brewery (VIC), a hazy XPA from Modus Operandi (NSW), strawberries & cream milkshake IPA from One Drop Brewing Co (NSW) and a double dose of a Golden Gaytime inspired beer from South Australia’s Big Shed Brewing Concern.
“You’ve really got a snapshot of the GABS Festival Beer experience in this one Six Pack” continued Williams.
“When you come to GABS, a big part of the fun is sampling all of these quite incredible and delicious concoctions dreamed up by brewers all around the country. In this pack alone, you’ve got beers inspired by ice creams, desserts, popcorn and even a packet of chips! It just goes to show how creative the world of beer can be. We even had one beer originally planned for the pack that didn’t quite make the deadline, hence the additional Mega Golden Stout Time from Big Shed. It’s beer, anything can happen!”
The GABS 2020 Festival Beer Mixed Six Pack is available from all Dan Murphy’s stores from July 31 and only while stocks last.
In addition, craft beer lovers are invited to join Craig and all of the Six Pack brewers for a live virtual Zoom tasting, a chat with the brewers, PLUS GABS trivia on Thursday, August 13.
Details can be found on the GABS Festival website.
Design competition announced
GABS isn’t just concerned with the flavours inside the can, it also loves the outside of the can.
That pop of colour, witty copy, and bold design that leaps off the shelf and catches a craft beer lovers eye. In the world of craft beer, first impressions count.
So the organisers have decided it’s time to celebrate the designers behind those important moments.
The Can Design Awards aims to shine a spotlight on the many talented designers across the creative craft beer industry. More than 120 breweries have submitted their designs and from July 24 – August 7 voting is open to the public to support their favourite designs and help to whittle it down to the top 10 before the winner is chosen by a judging panel.
