The sunny season has officially kicked off and, even if the weather hasn't quite got the message yet, that means a swag of summery pop-up bars are headed our way. And the latest of those comes courtesy of your mates at Moon Dog.

From Friday, December 2, the brewery is setting up shop in the Arts Centre Melbourne forecourt to deliver Summer Paradiso — a season-long pop-up bar and beer garden that'll have you beating the heat in style.

In front of the iconic spire, you'll be able to kick back with an array of summery bevs, including a hefty lineup of Moon Dog tap brews and tinnies, the brewery's new Razzler Alcoholic Disco Nectar varieties, Fizzer seltzers, vino and booze-free concoctions. There'll also be a crop of $13.50 cocktails — like the Fizzer Tropical Crush slushie with cranberry.

Meanwhile, the Q Barbecue food truck will be slinging a menu of wood-fired smoked delights and accompaniments — think, sticky gochujang and red Sichuan pork ribs, smoked brisket with wild pepper rub, buffalo wings, beef short rib, burnt end nachos and corn ribs, just to name a few.

As for the summer's soundtrack, that'll come courtesy of local DJs spinning every Friday through Sunday. Plus, you'll catch a further curation of tunes by SoundBox — a pop-up recording studio hosting a program of gigs, interviews and workshops in the forecourt from November 30–December 11.

Summer Paradiso will open from 12–9pm Sunday to Wednesday, and from 12pm–12am Thursday to Saturday.
