In excellent news for your forthcoming silly season travel plans, local brewery Stomping Ground has relaunched its pop-up beer garden at Melbourne Airport, bigger and better than before.

Dubbed Terminal 3 ½, the venue's located between Terminal 3 (Virgin flights) and the newer Terminal 4 (Tiger and Jetstar flights), slinging a hefty range of craft brews on tap and coffee by Proud Mary, alongside a rotation of some of the city's most legendary food trucks.

Big screens throughout are set to show all of the season's major sports events, while others will feature more useful airport info, like up-to-date gate information to help avoid any missed flight mishaps. There are deck chairs for maximum pre-flight relaxation, and even a fridge filled with takeaway tinnies.

Meanwhile, a vibrant look comes courtesy of local illustrator and muralist Justine McAllister, who's collaborated on a series of cheery artworks for the space, including colourful designs referencing the brewing process. You might almost forget you're about to endure the tedious process that is air travel.

Melbourne Airport's about to enter its busiest time of the year, so a few craft brews should help ease at least some of the stress of dealing with all those other passengers.

Stomping Ground's Terminal 3 ½ beer garden is located between terminals three and four at Melbourne Airport, and is open daily from 7.30am for the near future.
