After ten days, countless beers, and heaps of good times along the way, Pint of Origin is over for another year.
Thanks to everyone who took part: the host venues, the breweries here and abroad, The Crafty Pint team and the sponsors and others who helped them pull it together, and of course all of the beer lovers who made it such a success.
See you again in May 2024!

Congratulations to Tim Brady, the Sydneysider who won the competition to name the 2023 Pint of Origin beer. After a few rounds of voting and much discussion within The Crafty Pint team, his entry came out on top.

Thanks to Konvoy, who have come on board as Pint of Origin partners in 2023. They'll be helping bring beers from across Australia and New Zealand to venues this May. It's great to have them on board!
