YOU KNOW YOU WANT IT. Written by our good mate Luke Robertson of @AleofaTime fame, Keg Bottle Can is about celebrating the brewers and beers of Australia. It features 150 breweries, their beers, and the best occasions to drink them. Instead of organising beers by style, Keg Bottle Can celebrates the times when beers are best enjoyed. There are also suggested food matches for each beer, info about ageing and cellaring, pouring beer, glassware and more. It's your guide to navigating the wonderful world of Aussie beer. If you, or someone you know, loves beer (and hint, Father’s Day is coming up), this is the perfect book. Check it out on the Dymocks website.

Bubble and boil! We could watch this all day. Here's a peek behind the curtain to see what those crazy kids at @kererubrewing are concocting for us. #GABS2018

Hey Kiwi friends! Grab a copy of the NZ Herald TODAY to read all about the team at @nzpinkboots and their very special barrel aged Black IPA coming your way for GABS Auckland! #GABS2018

This is pretty damn exciting. If you managed to get to the Stone & Wood stand at GABS Melbourne or Sydney, and took part in their 'Brewstorm', you might soon have the opportunity to brew your recipe with the team, to be served at next year's GABS! .............

Over @gabsfestival we ran Brewstorm sessions at our stall so that drinkers could touch, taste, smell and feel the ingredients that go into our brews, as well as learn the basics of how to create a recipe. For those who love beer and getting creative, they had the opportunity to create their own recipe to win the chance to brew it in Byron and see it poured at @gabsfestival next year!
Some of you who entered may have met Cale and Jess... they’ve been sifting and shortlisting hundreds of entries...
Our head brewer Caols is choosing the winner tomorrow... so stay tuned!

Some photos of our second sold out session in Sydney on Saturday. More photos can be found on our Facebook page. Auckland up next! #gabs2018

Congrats to Mason and June who got engaged at Session 1, the first couple to ever get engaged at GABS -in any city! #beerlove #gabs2018
