The Great Australian Beer SpecTAPular (GABS) is set to return to Melbourne on 23-25 May at the Royal Exhibition Building, forming an integral part of the 2014 Good Beer Week celebrations.

Organisers are set to have a difficult time topping last year’s roaring success, which saw 89 brand new festival beers released – which is why they’re putting the call out now for breweries and brewers alike to get cracking and get involved.

Ben Kraus from Bridge Road Brewers is one brewer already signed up for GABS 2014. “GABS takes large steps towards bringing a broader audience to craft beer. The event pushes some real creativity from brewers and lifts the industry in many ways”, he says. Renowned Italian craft brewer, Leonardo di Vincenzo, from Birra del Borgo is another brewer eager to return declaring GABS “the best beer festival I’ve ever attended”.

Expressions of interest from breweries wanting to get involved are now open. For information, email For consumer enquiries, please visit the GABS website.
