The 'Hottest 100 Aussie Craft Beers of 2012' poll is now open for votes

Voting for The Local Taphouse's Hottest 100 Aussie Craft Brews of 2012 poll begins today.

Supported by Australian Brews News and Crafty Pint, the H100 is now in its fifth year and sees thousands of craft beer lovers from around Australia vote for their five favourite craft beers of the year.

All you need to do is select your FIVE favourite craft beers of 2012 and one randomly selected voter will win a case of each of the top FIVE beers (if not available, we'll keep going down the list until we have 5 cases).

Voting for the 'Hottest 100 Aussie Craft Brews' poll closes at 11:30pm on 15th January 2013 and the final 100 beers (listed from #100 to #1) will be announced on Australia Day on our blog, Australian Brews News and Crafty Pint. For those who want to know the results from last year, click here.

We ask that people only vote once. The beers must have been brewed in 2012 in Australia by breweries other than CUB's and Lion's main operations (i.e Matilda Bay and James Squire are eligible). The beer must have been commercially for sale in kegs or bottles.  Breweries are not permitted to offer prizes, incentives or inducements of any value in exchange for votes for their beers. Any clear breaches of this rule will lead to the votes being disqualified. We also reserve the right to remove votes that appear to be manufactured, or votes that we deem to be false. 

Thanks to Andrew Mitchell (Ale Star #D26) who has again developed this year's poll which is hosted by Pretty Clever Consulting.
