elcome to the Offcial Guide to GABS 2014, now proudly part of
Melbournes Good Beer Week.
The Great Australasian Beer SpecTAPular (GABS) was frst held at our
speciality beer venues, The Local Taphouses, in 2011 when we cheekily
asked a few Australian breweries to brew something special and ended
up with 20 amazing beers. The events great success encouraged us to
create a major craft beer festival unlike any other.
Since 2012, GABS has been held at the magnifcent Royal Exhibition
Building as a 3-day celebration of craft beer with almost 23,000 people
attending. This year were thrilled to feature over 250 beers from 150 of
the best breweries from Australia and around the world. Almost 120 of
these beers are brewed especially for the event. The Dan Murphys Market
Place showcases over 30 breweries and businesses with many hosting a
fantastic schedule of mini-events. Weve also added a Cask Bar pouring
local Real Ales from traditional hand pumps and there will be a carefully
selected variety of food stalls selling everything from cheese, beer ice
cream to American-style BBQ.
W
The new VIP Food & Beer Experience on Friday evening is supported by Mildura Brewery and the 2 hat Stefanos Restaurant and will feature renowned guest
brewers. Fun educational seminars are returning to Coopers Craft Beer College and weve got a great line up of entertainment and games including Paddle Art.
The Friday afternoon session is now called P.O.E.T.S Friday (Google it) and Silly Hat Sunday encourages you to join us in wearing fancy dress or a silly hat.
Were very grateful for the support of our sponsors and the tireless efforts of our organising team and family of volunteers. With their help weve managed to
shape a festival that some local and international brewers are now calling one of the best in the world.

or from Token Sellers roaming the festival hall (cash only). Surplus tokens are not refundable.
Ross Kenrick from Brisbanes Bacchus Brewing returns to GABS
this year with the added pressure of defending his title of Peoples
Choice Best Festival Beer at GABS 2013. His White Chocolate
and Raspberry Pilsner delighted taste buds throughout the Royal
Exhibition Building and took out the title against tasty competition.
Bacchuss White Chocolate and Raspberry Pilsner is Rosss natural
evolution of an existing brew. One of our most popular and unique
beers is our White Chocolate Pilsner and my favourite ice cream is white
chocolate and raspberry so when we were invited to enter GABS it was
a natural choice for me to try and take our Pilsner to the next level.
As a craft beer drinker Ross is impressed at the array of beers on offer at
GABS. Where else can you sample such a range of creativity over one
weekend? The quality and diversity of avours on offer is incredible.
When youve been once you wont ever want to miss it again.
2014 will see Bacchus roll out another dessert inspired beer - Sex, Drugs &
Rocky Road. Weve tried to put a Darrell Lea Rocky Road into a glass. The
beer has a purple hue of Turkish Delight and is layered with avours of
chocolate, peanuts, marshmallow, cherries, Turkish Delight and hazelnut.
It represents another unique beer on the long list of Bacchuss beers that
even the most seasoned Untappd user would struggle to keep up with.

QUICK SPECTAPULAR TIPS
EAT
This will not only replenish your system, it will help absorb the alcohol so
you dont get too tipsy too quickly. No wants to witness a weak, depleted
an drunk beer drinker in action.
TOLERANCE
Get to know your limits and dont exceed them. If you feel that moment of
absolute cheer, take a break, grab some water and eat some food.
LEARN SOMETHING
Sometimes theres more to beer than just drinking it. Ask questions.
Engage in discussion with mates and strangers. Read the tasting
notes. Talk about what you do and dont like. Think about what youre
drinking. Try new styles. Get educated. If all you end up with from gabs is
a hangover, youve truly missed out.
MODERATION
GABS is about appreciating the best beers on offer and not how much
can be consumed. Drink for favour, not just for impact. Anyone wishing
to treat this festival as a drinking game should have stayed at home.
TIME TO GO
When a GABS staff member or some 7 foot security guy is kindly
suggesting youve had your limit... Realise that its time to go home and
just leave. Any other course of action just gets sloppy.

STAFF & VOLUNTEERS
GABS Staff and Volunteers will be wearing GABS t-shirts and easy to identify.
Please respect them as many have given up their time to help you.
1. MILLING
& MASHING
Grain is crushed and mixed with hot water to make
a porridge where starches are converted to sweet
fermentable sugars that the yeast can eat later in
fermentation. The liquid is fltered to end up as a bright
sweet liquid called wort.
3. FERMENTING
Now we have a liquid that has a malt character
balanced with bitterness. But a crucial element is still
missing: Alcohol. Yeast, the agent of fermentation and
producer of alcohol, is pitched and allowed to ferment.
Yeast and trub are removed from Ales and then sent
to bright beer tanks with fresh yeast and liquid sugar.
Lagers are stored at -1C for numerous days, forced
carbonated with CO2 awaiting packaging.
2. BOILING
A rolling boil is carried out to sterilise the wort. Hops
are added to the kettle/copper for bitterness and favour
then sent to the whirlpool where aroma hops may be
added and the wort spun to remove solid material (hop
debris and other bits called trub). Finally, its chilled on
the way to the fermenting vessels.
4. PACKAGING
Beers are then either bottled, canned or kegged,
checked for quality and released for sale.
Unlike most beers, Coopers Ales are packaged
then stored for at least 10 days while a secondary
fermentation occurs and the bulk of the carbonation
takes place. They are then checked that they have
come up to condition before being released.

HOW TO TASTE BEER
When tasting a beer, theres so much more than swilling it down, burping and saying
its great or not for me. Even though tasting is very subjective, there are a few steps
which, if followed, will allow you to get more out of your tasting experience. Heres how
Matilda Bay recommends you go about tasting beer:
LOOK
Take a moment to look at your beer before you taste it. Raise the glass toward, but not
directly at, the light as this can dilute its true colour. Consider its colour, clarity, head
and consistency.
AGITATE
Swirl your beer gently in the glass to allow aromas and volatiles to loosen and escape
and also stimulate carbonation and test head retention.
SMELL
Around 75% of what you experience is through your sense of smell. Breathe through your
nose only, then with your mouth open, then through your mouth only (nose and mouth
are connected in the experience). Take in and enjoy its bouquet. What does the aroma
remind you of?
TASTE
Many beers beneft from being sampled at temperatures higher than commonly
dispensed. We encourage you to warm the beer in your hands prior to tasting and note
the difference. Now sip the beer. Resist swallowing immediately. Let it cover your whole
palate and listen to your taste buds. Think about the mouthfeel, the consistency of the
liquids body. Think about all the favours in terms of sweetness, salt, tartness and
general bitterness. Think about what they are, or what they are similar to. Why not have a
go at describing each beer you taste? Here are some helpful descriptors below.
WHAT IS BEER?
The basic ingredients of beer are water, a fermentable sugar source (grains such as malted
barley or wheat), hops and yeast. All beers can be broadly classifed into 3 main categories:
Ales, Lagers and Hybrids.
The key distinction of Ales is that they are brewed using top-fermenting yeast, at warmer
temperatures and with more rapid fermentation. They usually include more complex favoured
beers, are fruitier than lagers and include hoppy (bitter) beers and are best served less chilled
to allow their full favour and aroma to come out.
Lagers are brewed with bottom-fermenting yeast which ferments more slowly and at colder
temperatures. They usually include lighter tasting beers that tend to be more carbonated or
crisp and are often smooth and mellow. They can also be hoppy and bitter but often tend to
be more subtle and clean. Lagers are usually served more chilled than ales
Hybrid beers are those that dont ft neatly into either the Ale or Lager category.
HOW TO DESCRIBE BEER
When describing beer, its helpful to think about the different ingredients
that go into beer and what they might bring to the favour. Here are some
useful beer tasting descriptors often associated with each ingredient:
MALT
COLOUR: pale, straw, golden, amber, caramel, deep red, brown, black
FLAVOUR: honey, bready, caramel, biscuity burnt toffee,
coffee, chocolate, toasty, roasty
BODY: thin, medium, full, thick, chewy
HOP
FLAVOUR & AROMA: pine needle, citrus, summer fruit, passion
fruit, gooseberry, peach, apricot, pineapple, resinous, woody,
aromatic, bitter, delicate, foral, juicy, dry, fowery, grassy, green
YEAST
FLAVOUR & AROMA: spicy, dry, sour, tart, earthy, barnyard, wet
hay, clovey, peppercorn, cinnamon, banana, orange, mandarin,
bubblegum, vanilla, fruity, estery, phenolic

Coopers is Australias sole remaining family-owned brewery of stature, and although much has changed since brewing in wooden
barrels in Thomas Coopers day, the family name remains synonymous with exceptional quality beers.
Travelling the planet, Kerrie & Johnny discovered a world of beers not available in Oz so they imported them. Theyve now grown to
include iconic breweries and in 2014 they team up with Birra del Borgo to create Nomad Brewing in Sydney.
Wellingtonians love their craft beer like they love making fash movies. Beer appreciation is not so much a cult as a full blown religion
in those parts, so go and see what all the fuss is about. Get to know 4 of Wellingtons fnest.

Malty, spicy, hoppy, full bodied with a deep red colour.
This is an excellent version of 8 Wireds Rastafari Stout refermented with Brettanomyces in Pinot Noir
barrels. Roasty and chocolatey, fruity and funky.
You dont win friends with salad is a mantra 7 cent live by. So how do they get their greens? By putting it in beer
of course! This beer is a funky farmhouse style Belgian Wit beer that has been loaded with mountains of spicy wild
rocket grown in one of the brewers garden. Who said beer isnt good for you....
The reigning AIBA Australian Champion Breweries CUB (Large Brewery), Feral Brewing Company
(Medium Brewery) and 2 Brothers Brewery (Small Brewery) collaborated on this unfltered lager brewed
with whole hop fowers from Victoria and single origin West Australian malt.
The brewers have taken Koji rice and, with classic Pilsner brewing techniques, produced this
startlingly pale beer with distinct wine-like sake characters and a strong savoury undertone from the
high levels of umami in the Koji rice. Made in collaboration with Go-Shu sake brewers based in Sydney.
A luxurious take on a traditional Porter using Fuggles hops, vanilla beans and roasted organic coconut.
Expect a luscious deep brown colour with a rich tan head, a nose of roasted coconut and a silky smooth
chocolaty vanilla fnish. This is, quite simply, a tropical daydream.

An interesting, funky, spicy and refreshingly hoppy ale made with US and Kiwi hops and then grapefruit
peel is added along with Belgian yeast. This is so crazy you may roll around on the foor laughing like a

Beware Black Eis. During brewing, water freezes, alcohol intensifes and the favours are further

favours of raisins and other dried fruits. Only available as a taster or half-fll of your festival glass.
A Strawberry sour beer dosed with kilos of fresh strawberries and Aeroplane Jelly to give it a defned

A mouthful of peanut butter on toast! Light amber in colour ,a hint of salt, 3 speciality malts and a

A deeper darker version of their Kolsch beer. A gentle caress of darker malts provide a deeper and
bolder favour which is balanced by a nice hit of hop bitterness and aroma.
Belgian Saison brewed using the classic Dupont yeast strain. Think spice, citrus, and high carbon-
ation, with a beautifully dry cleansing fnish.
Meat. Beer. Together at last. Pepper Steak Porter is the ultimate ode to meat lovers. Cherry wood

Brewed with silly amounts of malts that add righteous girth and a choc roasty intensity on the palette.
Wailing noble hop varieties answer the Viking call with precision and balance. Fresh chilli adds a heroic
solo and pulls it all together like a studded codpiece. Best enjoyed listening to pummelling metal.
These brewers soaked French oak chips in dark rum then cold conditioned this hoppy ale on the oak.
The result imparts a marriage of biscuity malt, zesty hops and boozy and oaky notes.
Paying homage to its Irish roots, the deep red hue and creamy laced head gives rise to a strong roasted
malty ale. Moderate bitterness and buttery/toffee characters are prominent with a clean & dry fnish.
Subtle aromas of caramel & butter are also evident.
American Stout meets Belgian fermentation! Enjoy roasted coffee and chocolate characters sprinkled
with a healthy serving of hops and fnished up with a Belgian yeast strain.
This Strong Ale from one of Australias leading breweries is made with 100% brettanomyces
fermentation in used Chardonnay barrels. Make sure you try their previous GABS beers at the Feral
stand as you wont be disappointed.
A Belgian-style lambic beer that is fermented using raspberries.
A rich, full-bodied Porter brewed with tarragon. The added herbs impart subtle favours of aniseed,
balsam and a hint of pepper. Medieval apothecary books suggest tarragon alleviates toothaches, cures
insomnia and heals bites from rabid dogs and other wild beasts!
Brewed with Kombu (seaweed), Katsuobushi (fermented fsh) and sea water. A rich hit of umami, the
most enigmatic of favours, does battle with bold bitter, sweet and savory characteristics to create a
unique beer of monstrous complexity and depth.

A clean, crisp lager with creamy off-white head and accentuating the stronger characteristics of a
Bohemian Pilsner and European Amber Lager with a rye twist. A rounded bitterness and foral bouquet
from Saaz hop additions.
An American Brown Ale with a whiff of smoke, a touch of sour and a fruit salad bowl of hops. This beer
treads the tight rope trying to fnd that perfect balance between some big players while the yeast takes
a back seat.
The Big Brother to the award wining Black IPA (India Pale Ale) Wild Raven, this is a balanced
perfection of the complex blend of hops and malts.

An American hopped India Pale Ale (IPA) made using a variety of American hops with multiple late
stage favour additions to the boil.
This is a super-charged extension of Temples popular Scarlet Sour. It has an earthy dry acidity and the
fruity cranberry tartness is balanced by foral characteristics. It is mouth puckeringly delicious.
This European-style Farmhouse Ale has been fermented with multiple strains of brettanomyces and
loaded with Simcoe, Centennial, and Columbus hops.
A collaboration between Tokyo-born master cocktail alchemist Yoshi Kurasawa and TRB. Infused with
Japanese botanicals, this combines European complexity and fnesse with the four traditional Japanese
favour essentials of Konbu, Shiso, Yuzu and Ume.
Inspired by the apricot-based-sly-grog peddling delinquents of the early colony, this apricot-spiked
brew will steal your wallet, leaving nothing behind but the tartness of wheat malt and slug of apricot
favour.
This is brewed with zesty hints of orange, grapefruit and lemon giving a spectacular pungent aromatic
favour which will jolt your taste buds to whimsical limits.
An American Brown Ale with a solid malt backbone and a whole-cone hop punch.
(Brewed at the Sierra Nevada Beer Camp #120)
A Shameless favourite made more complex and delicious through the oak aging process.
A complex, sour, red wine-like oak aged Belgian-style ale. Deceivingly light and crisp on the palate
although a somewhat sweet fnish, medium astringency (like a well-aged red wine) and a prickly
acidity.
A rich, malty Extra Special Bitter (ESB) made with the UKs fnest malts and Organic Pacifc Gem hops
from New Zealand.
This oak-aged Doppelbock sounds innocent enough, maybe even a bit silly, luring you in with
promises of velvety smooth, smokey cacao layered over a rich dark malt backbone balanced by tart sour
cherry and notes of vanilla from the bourbon infused oak. But dont let it sneak up on you.
A zippy citrus Belgian style Witbier spiced with a traditional Sri Lankan curry blend, coriander, cumin,
chilli, coconut and lime rind.
Lots of hops, Belgian yeast, open ferment, maybe some spices and plenty of malty goodness from this
Healesville brewery.
This is the smaller twin of the well hopped American Pale Ale (think Danny DeVito to Arnold
Schwarzenegger). Rich, full bodied and loud enough to demand your attention. A full fruity herbacious
APA nose and at 2.9% you may just stay awake past 7pm.
A copper-coloured, sweet Scottish Ale with a slight smoky favour from the traditional Scottish yeast
and a dry fnish from roasted barley. CASK BEER
Brewer Jayne Lewis actually wrote the recipe and brewed this beer in a dream and now theyve turned it
into reality! It is inspired from Sesame Snaps so exhibits honey and caramel notes with a healthy does
of sesame seeds.
These guys won the Peoples Choice Best Festival Beer of GABS 2012 with their Gunnamatta IPA. This
year they are encouraging us to dive naked into this dark and sexy steamy south-east Asian Barbecue.
Tropical fruit, heat, smoke and spice... all things nice. A probiotic and gluten-reduced ale!
A maple coloured Rye Ale inspired by genever with a nod to modern Australian gin botanicals featuring
natives, exotics and, of course, juniper berry. These spices are married with the unique favour and
aroma of Australian grown Enigma hops.
