Nothing says "Melbourne" like throwing in craft beer at unexpected places. It seems this is also the case for our airport.
Yes, you heard that right. Collingwood's Stomping Ground Brewing Company will be opening a brand-new airport brewery inside the international terminal at Melbourne Airport.
It will officially be known as the southern hemisphere's first-ever airport brewery. As the Stomping Ground team will be brewing on-site, you'll get to choose from (and taste) a wide range of craft beer, plus a selection of food from the brewery's Collingwood menu. Maybe having your flight delayed isn't so bad after all...
As part of a new hospitality upgrade, Melbourne Airport will also be opening new outposts by some of Melbourne's most loved cafés and bars. Chef Scott Pickett will open a second Pickett's Deli & Rotisserie (you'll find the original at Queen Vic Market); TV personality Shane Delia will open Moors by Shane Delia; popular café Cobb Lane will bring their famous pastries, plus there will be new outposts for Axil Coffee Roasters, Proud Mary and heaps more.
New venues will start to open in September while full renovations of Terminal 2 and 3 are expected to be completed by December 2019. Stay tuned.
