If you’re not familiar, GABS—the Great Australasian Beer SpecTAPular—is a massive beer event that aims to quench your thirst in a big way. It’s coming to Auckland this weekend and will feature up to 100 unique craft beers and ciders that have been brewed specifically for GABS. 

Let’s be clear, these beers and ciders are unique, one-off’s, limited release, and exclusive in every sense, and here’s your chance to get your drink on.

This year, Festival Beers & Ciders are served from two distinctive Husky Container Bars which are lined with an eye-poppin’ 60 taps on each side.  

Be sure to check out the biggest Liquorland Silent Disco in town, circus and sideshow acts and The Ale Capones (just wait and see). If you’re in the learning mood hit up the Ariston Food & Drink Experience and Craft College sessions to learn the ins and outs of the craft beer world.

Alongside the amazing beer and cider you’ve come to expect at GABS, there’ll also be a plethora of street food where you’ll find the likes of House of Dumplings, Mahurangi Oysters and Monsoon Poon.
