2022 GABS Can Design winners announced
The 2022 GABS Can Design awards winners have been announced with 152 of Australia’s most exciting craft breweries entering this year’s competition.
The overall winner was Victoria’s Cavalier Brewing’s “Bloody Maria Imperial Gose Michelada” designed by Jason Burton and it took home the Orora Golden Can Trophy.
There was a people’s choice vote and after that it was over to the panel of brand expert judges who evaluated the ten finalists across six categories (visual & aesthetic appeal, creativity & originality, impact, brand identity, usability & messaging and design brief).
Queensland took out silver with Black Hops’ British India Pale Ale (Jamie Browne) and NSW the bronze with Buckettys Brewing Co’s Tawny Grogmouth (Brent Turner).
Top designs in each state were SA – Big Shed Brewing Concern Vicious Evolution, WA – Rocky Ridge Brewing Co You Wouldn’t Download a Beer, ACT – Capital Brewing Co West Coast NEIPA, TAS – Spotty Dog Brewers Simcoe IPA and NT – Alice Springs Brewing Co Supercali Fragili STOUT Expiala Docious.
“It’s fantastic to see just how talented the designers in the industry are, just a few years ago beer can designs could easily have been considered fairly boring, today they’re an artist’s blank CANvas! Along with all our campaign partners, we couldn’t be more proud to be playing our part in sharing the love of craft beer and to celebrating our incredible industry!” – Mike Bray, GABS Craft Beer Festival.
