Where will you be watching the GABS Hottest 100 Craft Beer Countdown?

Sunshine Coast Breweries to feature in GABS Hottest 100 Craft Beer Countdown

With a range of countdown parties happening across the country, we thought we would take a look at what’s happening here on the Sunshine Coast.

With big expectations again this year from some of the local heavy hitters, we could be on track for another record year of local breweries in the top 100! Check out the local breweries on the Sunshine Coast below who are part of the official countdown.

Without a doubt the best chance of a podium finish is with Your Mates Brewing and the local favourite Larry. Claiming 3rd place in 2021 and 5th place in 2022 there’s definitely a chance of sneaking back into the medals. Join the Your Mates crew to cheer on Larry at their Countdown Party at the Warana Brewhouse.

41 Technology Drive, Warana, QLD

Saturday 27 January, 11am – 6pm

Join the Your Mates team for our favourite party on the calendar. It’s loud, it’s fun and it’s all about one thing- Getting Larry to the #1 spot! Don’t forget to book a table, it’s a full house every year!


Also a regular in the top 100 is 10 Toes Brewery and their cracking Pipeline Pale Ale. There’s a really good chance to see it push to break its all time high of number 25 and quite possibly have a second beer also making the list. Head to the new 10 Toes at Buderim for all the action.


10 Toes Brewing, 1-5 Pittards Road, Buderim, QLD

Saturday 27 January, 11am – 5pm
Get ready for a day of music, merriment, and mouthwatering delights at 10 Toes Brewing! Join us for an exclusive event as we present the ‘GABS Hottest 100 Countdown’ extravaganza, accompanied by the pulsating beats of ‘Triple J Hottest 100 Countdown.’ Hosted at the vibrant 10 Toes Brewing, with catering from the renowned The Bunker Smokehouse, it’s an experience you won’t want to miss!


If there was ever an underdog to cheer for then the team at Moffat Beach Brewery would have to be it. Having never seen a beer list in the top 100 (despite winning a ridiculous number of awards for their beers) this could be their lucky year! Watch out for Passenger Pale Ale breaking the duck and cracking the top 100. Head to Moffat Beach Production for the festivities.
