Stomping Ground Brewing Co this week opened its new brewery and beer hall at Melbourne Airport.
Located in Terminal 3, it is the first working brewery inside an airport in Australia, and only the fourth in the world.
The opening of a permanent location follows the successful trial of a pop-up beer garden by Stomping Ground at the airport over the last two summers.
A total of 30 taps will pour a wide range of beers brewed on site and at the company’s main brewery in Collingwood.
“We’re incredibly excited to be representing Melbourne’s thriving independent brewing scene, and joining some of the city’s best food and drink operators at our own airport,” commented Stomping Ground co-founder Justin Joiner.
“We’ll be tapping new beers most weeks so there could well be a new beer added between when you depart and arrive home!”
Designed in collaboration with Studio Y, the agency behind Stomping Ground’s original Collingwood brewpub, the venue features featuring large murals from local artist Justine McAllister.
It will be open 5am-9.30pm every day with a full restaurant and bar menu, with takeaway beer available to take home or on your flight.
Whilst it is located past security in Terminal 3, anyone can visit the brewpub whether they are flying Virgin Australia or not.
