Voting for the 2021 GABS Hottest 100 Craft Beers of the year, the biggest ‘people’s choice’ craft beer poll in the country, is now open. Thousands of beers from all over Australia are vying for the chance to claim a place within the pantheon of the favourite craft beers in the land.
Since we started our brewing journey in 2016 we’ve had a proud tradition of improving our results every year. In the 2019 countdown we had the fifth most votes for any brewery in the country, with four of our beers cracking the top 100 and Pale Ale topping our list in 14th spot.
Making this list goes a long way for independent breweries like us who don’t have a big marketing budget. And this year, with your help,
we’re looking to take things to another level again. We’d love to get G.O.A.T. even higher up the leaderboard and get a record number of BH beers in the list, so please get voting for your five favourite craft beers of the year.
And if our AWOL Pink Mist hit your support sweet spot this year, please consider slinging it one of your five votes – barrel aged beer hasn’t made the list in 5 years so we are hoping to break the drought.
The annual Australian Independent Beer Awards (also known as the ‘Indie Beer Awards’) is Australia’s largest independent beer competition, support offering brewers the opportunity to benchmark their beers while recognizing excellence in the brewing industry.
On Thursday night, November 25, a detachment of dark hops descended on the Brisbane party venue to brew beer with ease at Woolloom Garba.
The jury evaluated over a thousand support beers and we knew that getting a gong on the night would not be easy. So, at the end of a raucous evening, we were motivated to leave with a record 24 medals for dark hops.
Our two gold medal beers that night were Ichibaan (a Koji Gose created by our brewing legend Toshi) and Pink Mist (a barrel-aged raspberry Saison, also a three-time AIBA gold medalist). Both of these beers are favorites of our customers and staff,
