Auckland's Favourite Craft Beer SpecTAPular Is Back For 2022!

Recognised globally as one of the best beer festivals in the world, GABS Craft Beer Festival returns to Auckland on Saturday 25 June at Auckland Showgrounds.

GABS brings together the best breweries from New Zealand and Australia for a whirlwind celebration of craft beer including over 50 brand new festival beers brewed exclusively for GABS that won't be found anywhere else in the world! For brewers, it's an opportunity to be creative, to push boundaries, and to showcase their talents. Rainbow coloured tasting paddles will be the flavour of the day.

Here's a sneak peek at a few festival beers that can be found at the GABS Festival Bar:

Aether Brewing (AUS) Earl Grey Creme Brulee 7.0% Cream Ale is Aether's take on the classic French dessert. Rich vanilla and custard dominate with a subtle citrus and botanical character thanks to the use of Earl Grey tea infused during the brewing process.

Behemoth Brewing Company (AKL) Pineapple Lump Milk Stout 6.5%: Classic taste of Pineapple Lumps, bold chocolate with a hint of pineapple, a kiwi classic in beer form.

Mountain Culture (AUS) The Awesome Beer 8.0%: This milkshake IPA is a truly awesome flavour bomb, full of an awesome amount of tropical fruits thanks to excessive late additions of the most awesome Mosaic, Citra, Simcoe and Sabro hops before finishing lusciously thick and creamy thanks to our trademark combo of lactose and our awesome house yeast strain.
