Stomping Ground Brewery & Beer Hall
Stomping Ground Brewery & Beer Hall A century ago Collingwood was the epicenter of Australian brewing, and breweries were an integral part of their community. Having started beer temples The Local Taphouse and GABS Beer, Cider & Food Fest, founders Steve Jeffares, Guy Greenstone and Justin Joiner are proud to bring independent brewing back to its original stomping ground – and put their community at the heart of everything they do. They think beer should be for everyone and brew great beers to suit all tastes, from laid-back easy drinkers to adventurous spirits.

From the moment you walk in, you’ll feel like you’ve just entered a cavern that has been kept secret for generations. The ambiance of this establishment is quite of another realm. The bar is spacious and evenly-lit, with a sectioned-off seating area that offers more privacy than the main seating areas. There are music and laughter, perfect for getting a little rowdy after a day out from work.”- Aldin Ortinez

“A fantastic experience for the whiskey lover. The focal point of the bar is an entire wall of bottles filled with the water of life. The beer offerings on tap are also quite impressive. We came during “Good Beer Week” and were very pleased. The staff were anticipating a busy night with a whiskey class and couldn’t seat us at a table. We sat at the bar instead and had a great time. It made ordering drinks and staring at the hundreds of bottles that much easier! Helpful and knowledgeable staff make one feel spoiled for choice rather than intimidated by the expansive range of drinks. The food is probably the weak point at this charming bar. We found only a single vegetarian option. But hey, it’s Melbourne. There are plenty of restaurants to enjoy. Come here for a delightful dram!”- C’havala J
