Craft beer heaven at Stomping GroundMelbourne, Australia

Munich’s beer halls meet Melbourne minimalism at homegrown venture Stomping Ground. The master brewers at this gargantuan warehouse are reliving the halcyon days of the late 1800s, when Collingwood was Australia’s brewing epicentre. While away a Sunday afternoon in the beer garden – complete with retractable roof – striving to swig your way through the 30 craft beers on tap.

There’s a traffic light system menu to help curious punters pick a lighter session ale (green) from a knockout (red). The most intense malt on offer is the Stave Breaker at a whopping 9.8 per cent, with notes of roasted chocolate and whisky, while Flower Power is more of a crowd-pleasing wet-hopped brew vaunted as juicy and herbaceous. Even the food menu here revolves around beer, with each dish (think porchetta, steamed mussels and beef cheek) featuring a suggested pairing.
