It’s on again, this is your opportunity to vote for your top 5 beers of 2015! There have been so many incredible beers and breweries launched this year that to narrow it down to only five is certainly challenging. What will your top 5 be? Here’s one of my favourite tunes of 2015… a great feel good song with an awesome beat!

Cast your votes below for your favourite 5 craft beers of 2015 in the GABS Hottest 100 Aussie Craft Beers of the Year poll. One randomly selected voter will win a VIP experience for two people to GABS 2016 (valued up to $1500) and a Crafty Cabal annual membership (value $99).

The GABS Hottest 100 Aussie Craft Beers of the Year poll began as a bit of fun for staff and customers in 2008 at the multi award-winning Local Taphouse beer bars in Melbourne and Sydney, the home of the very first GABS in 2011. Proudly supported by The Local Taphouse Crafty Pint, Australian Brews News and Dan Murphy’s,  the poll attracts thousands of beer loving voters around the country who vote for their favourite Australian craft beers each year and enjoy the countdown on Australia Day.


Many ‘Festival Beers’ produced by breweries especially for GABS have featured prominently in our Hottest lists over the years including La Sirene’s GABS 2014 People’s Choice winner ‘Praline’ (#5, 2014), Two Birds’ ‘Taco’ (#13, 2014) and Feral’s ‘Watermelon Warhead’ (#33, 2014), the latter which was also judged Best Beer in Australia at the 2015 Australian Craft Beer Awards.  To see the results since 2008 visit our new Wikipedia page.

In the 2015 poll, will recent champions Feral ‘Hop Hog’ and Stone & Wood’s ‘Pacific Ale’ battle it out for top spot yet again or have the country’s beer fans discovered another favourite from the ever increasing choice available?

The voting polls are open from Monday December 14th until 12am AEST on January 18th. On Australia Day afternoon on January 26th, the results are counted down at The Local Taphouses, dozens of Official Venues around the country, on the Australian Brews News and The Crafty Pint websites, social media (#h100beers) and live podcasts.

Official H100 Venues and Events for Australia Day are listed here.
