March 19, 2012 - PRLog -- Sixty exclusive and new beers by Australia and New Zealand’s leading craft brewers will be showcased at the first Great Australasian Beer SpecTAPular (GABS) in Melbourne during May’s Good Beer Week.

Presented by the boys behind multi-award winning Melbourne and Sydney beer venues The Local Taphouse, this sophisticated Euro-style celebration of the hop will be unlike any beer and food festival seen in these parts.

Drawing on the heritage elements of the Royal Exhibition Building, the hall will be brimming with classic wooden tables and generous bench seating with the centre piece being four amazing container bars. In the finest European tradition there will be gourmet food to match the beer, entertainment and beer education sessions.

Stone & Wood, James Squire, Little Creatures, The Monk, Mountain Goat, Matilda Bay, True South, Feral and Burleigh are among the Australian brewers to reveal their fresh and unique creations during the festival. The Yeastie Boys, Epic, 8 Wired and Tuatara are among the 16 breweries flying the Kiwi flag.
