When the concept was first launched two years and one day ago, the Great Australian Beer Spectapular (as it was back then) featured 20 new, unique beers being tapped for the first time at The Local Taphouses in St Kilda East and Darlinghurst. Last May, the organisers – acknowledging that they had outgrown their two venues – moved their beery extravaganza to Melbourne’s Royal Exhibition Building. There, armed with two shipping containers they had turned into mobile bars with 60 taps along either side, it morphed into the Great Australasian Beer Spectapular with close to 60 new beers being tapped for the first time that weekend, Including 20 from across the Tasman in New Zealand.



For its third outing, the event colloquially referred to as GABS has stretched its tentacles further still. Although still called the Great Australasian Beer Spectapular, the 2013 event features a number of international brewers from Europe, Japan and the US. Not only that, but the organisers hope to attract 100 or more never before brewed beers for the occasion and are adding a raft of other new features designed to tackle issues encountered at the 2012 event.


The organisers have confirmed that Australians Feral, Mornington Peninsula Brewery, Bridge Road, Murray’s and Wig & Pen have committed to brew a beer, with Kiwis Yeastie Boys (winners of last year’s People’s Choice Award for their awesome Gunnamatta), 8 Wired and Garage Project also planning to take part again. And, in what co-founder Steve Jeffares says is “one of the most exciting developments this year”, internationals including Sierra Nevada, Brooklyn, Thornbridge, Birra del Borgo, Mikkeller, Camden Town Brewery, Baird, Nøgne ø and Moylan’s have been invited to showcase a new beer too.


“This year will see a ‘Beer Market’ for the first time, where up to 60 breweries and industry related businesses can showcase their products and visitors to the event can meet and talk to some of the brewers behind the beers,“ says Steve. “It also means another way to access a great beer, minimising waiting time at the main shipping container bars, which have also been redesigned.”


Such changes have been brought in in part to alleviate issues with queuing, which at times in the busier sessions last year saw people waiting for an hour to get beer.
