Stomping Ground is the brewery from the team behind The Local Taphouse and (formerly) GABS. Now with its Collingwood home, along with an airport offshoot, and a brewpub in the works in Moorabbin, it's cementing itself as a Melbourne fave. We are excited to welcome them as a festival brewery for the first time.
The week starts off with Stomping Ground nice and early with its airport bar open from 8am, the first Saturday of Good Beer Week. Ready to catch any early flights into Melbourne, where you can start Good Beer Week as soon as you land. Just show a Good Beer Week ticket to any event, and they'll shout you a beer. The deal runs all of Good Beer Week 2021.
Then it's two events, just across the Yarra from each other. First is on Saturday with the theGood Beer Kitchen at Arbory Eatery. The annual lunch teams chefs up with brewers, in a celebration of food and beer right in the middle of Melbourne. Then on Sunday it's a Brewniversity homebrew session at Hopscotch. You will walk away with the tools and know how to make your own Stomping Ground beer at home.
Monday you can find the team on their home turf in Collingwood with a celebration of barrel-aged beer. You'll taste several barrel-aged beers from 2020 and 2021, alongside canapes all night.
Then it's over to Kensington for a beer dinner at the gorgeous Hardimans Hotel. It's a five-course matched beer dinner featuring Stomping Ground beer paired with contemporary Australian food.
