Australia and New Zealand annually choose the best craft beer of the year. To identify the winner, countries run a GABS Hottest 100 poll. Which beer will win the award for 2020, according to the GABS Hottest 100 predictions?
GABS Hottest 100 predictions are finally out at online sportsbooks in New Zealand. Let’s see which craft beer will become the best in Australia and New Zealand. If you have never heard about this competition among beer manufacturers, here is a short introduction.
What is GABS Hottest 100?
Initially, GABS (Great Australasian Beer SpecTAPular) was just a beer and food festival that celebrated the diversity and creativity of craft beer in Australia and New Zealand. Founded in 2011, the festival took place annually in Melbourne and Sydney. In 2015, its attendance reached the top of 23.000. Such big popularity of craft beer events resulted in a GABS special poll aiming to identify the best beer of the year.
GABS Hottest 100 is an annual poll that reveals the best craft beer every year. People from Australia and New Zealand are free to vote for their favorites. Usually, hundreds of breweries compete for the right to become number one. Some invent beers exclusively for the contest, the others nominate their time-tested bestsellers. Voting takes place from December until mid-January.
The winner is always announced on Australia Day on January 26. To see which brewery is expected to win, check the odds at online gambling sites in New Zealand.
