What is GABS Hottest 100?

The Great Australian Beer Spec-tap-ular (GABS) Hottest 100 voting poll is your chance to vote for your five favourite craft beers from the last 12 months. This then culminates in a massive countdown party in January and in 2020 we were lucky to have Australian Brews News co hosts right here in venue broadcasting their podcast from Hemingway’s Brewery Cairns Wharf. 

35,500 people voted in the country’s biggest people’s choice poll!!

Described by Australian Brews News as "the largest and most influential people’s choice poll in the land”, the annual GABS Hottest 100 Craft Beers poll has grown exponentially in popularity each year. 

Something extra special happened in 2020 during the GABS Hottest 100 countdown. We were honoured to have craft beer royalty in the brewery as Pete “Prof” Mitcham (www.brewsnews.com) and beer educator and advocate Matt Kirkegaard (www.beermatt.com) broadcast their #1-ranking beer podcast Radio Brews News in venue and breaking down all the action as the countdown closed in on the number 1 voted Australian craft beer of 2019.

Our 7th Heaven Tropical Ale came in at #15 for the GABS Hottest 100 NEW Craft beers list and #81 overall which is a huge achievement considering the competition we were up against and we can't wait to see what is in store for 7th Heaven Tropical Ale in 2020 as we continue our partnership with GBRL Legacy, funding further reef research to help #savethereefonebeeratatime.
