Winner: Stone & Wood’s Pacific Ale. For the full list of 100 see www.gabsfestival.com.

Stone & Wood’s Pacific Ale has again finished on the podium in the tenth year of the GABS Hottest 100 Craft Beer competition. Taking out their first-ever Hottest 100 win was Gold Coast’s Balter with their popular XPA. Balter is part-owned by champion surfers Mick Fanning, Joel Parkinson, Josh Kerr and Bede Durbidge.

Second place went to local brewer Stone & Wood’s perennial favourite ‘Pacific Ale’, a consistent top three beer since the 2010 poll, and three-time winner.

Ben Summons, managing director of Stone & Wood, said, ‘We are so humbled to come in at second, standing alongside two other independent breweries who are making good beer. To be in the top three for the eighth year is a tribute to our incredible team who are focused on working together to brew quality beer’.

Third place went to Crankshaft from BentSpoke Brewing Co.
