GABS2024 HOW TO TASTE BEER

WHEN TASTING A BEER, THERE’S SO MUCH MORE THAN SWILLING IT DOWN. EVEN THOUGH TASTING IS AN INDIVIDUAL THING, THERE ARE A FEW STEPS WHICH IF FOLLOWED WILL TAKE YOUR BEER TASTING TO A BLISSFUL LEVEL

First things first! Pour your beer into a clear glass, pause and take a good look at it. Raise the beer in front of you but don't hold it up to direct light Pay attention to the colour, clarity, foam and consistency

Gently swirl the beer in the glass to unlock its aromas, stimulate carbonation and test head retention

Take two quick sniffs through your nose and then one long one Try breathing with your mouth open and closed and take note of what you sense

LOOK SWIRL SMELL TASTE

Take a small sip but don’t swallow right away Instead, allow the beer to linger in your mouth which will allow the beer’s characteristics and flavours to shine through Fruity, smoky, smooth? What do you experience.

MOUTHFEEL

How does the beer feel in your mouth? It could be light and airy or it might be heavy and viscous? Is it very bubbly? The mouthfeel will be different depending on the style of beer, brewing methods and ingredient quality

EVALUATE

Take notes! Beer tasting is an individual experience The more tasting you do it, the better you’ll get at understanding your own preferences

GABS2024 HOW TO TASTE BEER

WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO EXPLORE NEW FLAVOURS AND STYLES BUT KNOW THE CHOICE CAN BE OVERWHELMING. IN ADDITION TO OUR SIMPLE TRAFFIC LIGHT COMPLEXITY RATING, USE THESE ADDITIONAL TOOLS BELOW TO HELP YOU DECIDE!

CRISP

Crisp beers are light, clean and crisply refreshing

Subtle fruit flavours and depth to these beers

Some sweetness from a biscuity malt profile

Fresh, refreshing hop aromas with crisp bitterness

Earthy, hay-like, grassy, and woody hop flavours with a dry malt profile

Hop flavours and bitterness are the hallmarks of these beers Each hop varietybringsitsowncharacteristics

Expect some sweetness and flavours of nuts, toffee, caramel, toast and fruit.

The highly roasted malts in these beers give coffee or cocoa style flavours

Smoked malts impart characters similar to some malt whiskeys or smoked meats

BOLD, HERBAL & CITRIC

Pepper, banana, and clove flavours are found in these yeast driven styles

HOP MALT ROAST SMOKE FRUITY/SPICY TART/FUNKY

Yeast and bacteria give a combination of sour, rustic and earthy characters

If you’re new to craft beer, here’s a great place to start These are approachable, balanced and great examples of some of Australia’s favourite styles

Bursting with hop flavours and a complex or rich malt profile

Mild malt and heavy use of hops creates citrus, resin and tropical fruit flavours

Full malt flavours and toasty or nutty accents and hints of dark stewed fruit

The malts provide flavours such as dried fruit, plums or toffee

Smooth and decadent with flavours of milk chocolate, coffee or hazelnut

Full on roast characters such as espresso, dark chocolate, and raw cocoa

The smoke is usually gentle, intriguing and in harmony with the other flavours

Bonfire and smoky bacon flavours, with subtle malts and yeast underneath

Bubblegum, citrus and banana flavours

Yeast and dark malts create dark fruit, banana bread and rich spice flavours

Mild acidity and with crisp, tart characters

Vinous with pronounced acidity and fruit characters

Sour and funky, these are often aged in oak

Here you’ll find beers that are a bit more challenging, including bigger hop profiles and darker styles There’s a whole world of creativity and flavour to explore

For the craft aficionado, the “Adventurous” beers and ciders are where it’s at From tart and funky sours to big ABV barleywines and everything in between

GABS2024 HOW TO APPROACH FESTIVAL BEERS

EVERY YEAR WE PUT THE CALL OUT TO AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND’S BEST BREWERS TO CREATE SOMETHING SPECIAL FOR OUR FESTIVALS.

For those brewers, it’s an opportunity to push their creative flair, break boundaries, and showcase their talents. These beers, ciders and seltzers are unique, one-of-a-kind, first time, and exclusive releases in every sense. Some are made in a traditional style, perhaps with a twist, while others are highly creative. Whith so many Festival Beers on offer at GABS, sampling is the name of the game.

1 3 4 5 6 2

There are 120 festival beers to choose from They are served from two huge festival bars, each with 3 sections of 20 taps on each side.

Tasting paddles each hold five 100mL glasses

You may only select from 20 festival beers in a section. The traffic light indicators are a guide to what might suit your taste.

Simply grab a tasting paddle and piece of chalk at the festival bar, pick your beers off the menu and write the numbers down on the paddle in sequential order

Give the paddle to one of our friendly bar staff to have your glasses filled ENJOY!

Repeat steps 4 and 5 in the next section and if you find something you love, you can go back for the full pour!

NOSTALGIA HAS BEEN A VERY BIG TREND ACROSS THE DRINKS AND HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY. WHAT DO YOU THINK IS DRIVING THIS INTEREST AMONG CONSUMERS?

When we ‘get all nostalgic’ we are feeling positive and warm emotions which have a powerful appeal It’s perhaps something consumers may have experience with, or fond memories of earlier in life, heard stories about, or even seen on the big screen. Now they get their chance to try it or even relive it. There is also an underlying and reassuring authenticity that’s brought up with exposure to brand or industry heritage and nostalgia which offers a refreshing refuge in our everincreasing digital world. Something from the past that’s familiar, simpler, and proven offers a strong and grounded connection which has big cut-through and can be reassuring, especially within uncertain economic times

WHAT DO AUSTRALIAN NATIVES OFFER TO BREWERS?

Australian natives offer a chance for the brewer to innovate and showcase a beer that’s uniquely local and to promote environmentally sustainable practices. Our native flora’s unique flavours are the big drawcard, which any of us that have tried the likes of wattle seed, lemon myrtle, or finger lime can attest to Here we have the flavours of the Australian bush, and there’s really nothing like them anywhere in the world Building on a theme of cultural connection and authenticity also becomes an appealing story for adventurous patrons as brewers look for differentiation in a noisy market

GIN DISTILLERS SOMETIMES TALK ABOUT A “NATIVE BOTANICAL FATIGUE” BOTH AMONG

DISTILLERIES AND CONSUMERS. DO YOU THINK THIS IS IN THE FUTURE FOR BREWERS, OR DO YOU THINK IT WILL STAY POPULAR?

While this is possible, I think beer is safe for now With botanicals not an essential brewing ingredient and the frequency of application low, they are still a novelty with plenty of innovation to come. If you think of the many variables in brewing and actual beer styles, the possibilities are almost endless Native botanicals offer unique consumer engagement opportunities around storytelling, education, and community connection.

WE’RE SEEING A LOT OF SAVOURY FLAVOURS IN BEERS - SALT, SPICE, SMOKE, SPAGHETTI ETC. IS THIS A NEW TREND, OR HAS THIS EXISTED FOR A WHILE? WHAT IS THE APPEAL OF A SAVOURY FLAVOUR PROFILE?

With savoury flavours historically used in brewing, it seems their use is again on the rise With traditional use of salt in ‘Gose’ and smoke in ‘Rauchbier’, spices and herbs have also been used over time. Increased innovation and brewing capability within modern craft beer has also led to further experimentation of savoury flavours Whereas in the past it may have been just smoke or salt, now it’s a ‘Smoked Macadamia Stout’ or a ‘Spaghetti Saison’ Obviously, there is uniqueness and marketing cutthrough calling out your ‘Spaghetti Beer’ and a fair bit of consumer anticipation created. There’s also a sophisticated opportunity to take your beer drinker on a deeper sensory dive exploring complexity around aroma, taste, and mouthfeel As you may imagine Savoury beers also lend themselves heavily to food pairing.

We wanted to make a beer that celebrated where it was made - the Yarra Valley.

VANILLA BEAN PANNA COTTA

The prominent presence of natural vanilla beans adds a delightful sweetness without overpowering the beer's overall balance Caramel and toffee notes from the malt provide a comforting sweetness, while a gentle touch of roasted malt imparts a subtle complexity. The interplay of malt sweetness and vanilla is harmoniously balanced, with just enough bitterness from the hops to provide a clean finish. The flavour also carries some burn from the alcohol, enriching the complexity and depth of the taste.
