A Canberra brewry has taken out the top as Australia's favourite craft beer. 

BentSpoke's 'Crankshaft' was voted as the number one beer of the 2021 Gabs Hottest 100 Craft Beer countdown. This is actually the second year in a role that BentSpoke has taken out the honours. 

BentSpoke Brewer's Richard Watkins said he would love to make it a hatrick. 

“We came third three years in a row and now first two years in a row, so we’d love to do a three-peat.”
