The GABS Hottest 100 Craft Beers poll is described as the ‘largest and most influential people’s choice poll in the land’ for Australian breweries. Thousands of people vote online for their five favourite beers, and our independent northern rivers brewery, Stone & Wood, have placed in the top three for the past eight years and have come out on top in 2015 and 2016.

Putting pure parochialism aside, they are a big employer and generous in their support of worthwhile causes in our region, so voting for their beers at gabsfestival.com is a pretty simple way of supporting them, apart from drinking the local brews! It also sticks it up the giant breweries miles away in Sydney or in other states.

 You can show your love and support for this local business that is celebrating their tenth anniversary by going online and voting for the original Pacific Ale and their other beers including Cloud Catcher and the rebranded Green Coast Lager.

Any brewery is able to enter, so by voting for your favourite independent breweries you are directly supporting small-to-medium businesses who are trying to do good in their communities.

VOTE NOW – www.gabsfestival.com.

If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
