Vote 1: Young Henrys in GABS Hottest 100 Craft Beers of 2017

Vote 1: Young Henrys in GABS Hottest 100 Craft Beers of 2017

It's that time of the year when the beer-drinking public have their say in the GABS Hottest 100 Craft Beers of the year.

We had a blast in 2017 - making beer, teaming up with legends and seeing beer in the hands of the people. It's a pretty interesting time for the industry and we've had to quell our fair share of rumours recently. We remain fiercely independent and can't wait to serve the people in the year ahead. 

We've put together this little cheat sheet of our nominees (Yep, just like The Oscars...) So, if you like the cut of our jib, and you've enjoyed wetting your whistle with one of our frosty beverages in 2017, then you might like to hit that voting link before 19 January. 



Made to celebrate 150 years of Newtown. A golden, refreshing pale ale with great balance and hoppy aroma. Drinks all day, every day.
Australian Pale Ale, 4.8%


Natural Lager 

A beautifully balanced beer with a hazy, golden hue. Bursting with Australian noble hop character. Super crisp, flavourful and refreshing.
Unfiltered Lager, 4.2%





Real Ale

A modern Aussie take on a classic English Best Bitter. Solid malt backing meets long bitter finish from new varietal Australian hops. A smooth session beer.
Aussie Best Bitter, 4%




Summer Hop Ale 

Bursting with aroma straight off the top, the Summer Hop boasts a well-rounded hop character of pine , rockmelon, stone fruit and citrus. A solid bitterness is balanced by the gentle sweetness of Munich Malt and malted wheat while still achieving a seasonably dry finish.
American IPA, 6%



Winter Hop Ale 

This season's Red IPA combines warming malt flavours of biscuit and bready fruitloaf with a full hit of classic American West Coast hop aroma and rich mouthfeel. A touch of rye seals the deal with a finish as clean as a freshly-powdered mountaintop.  

Red IPA, 6.1%



Dunies Lager 

Slightly hazy, Summer smasher of a lager with a full blown dank hop nose and flavour courtesy of some late addition hop hash. Mosaic, Citra, El Dorado and Azacca hops give a feisty first impression, but mellow into an easy-going friend that drinks for days.
Lager, 4.20%
