Clocking in at a hefty 1500 square metres, Stomping Ground's Collingwood brewpub is quite the monster. But it seems there are even bigger things to come for this ever-expanding brewery, with its owners this week announcing plans to build a second venue in Moorabbin. They've just signed a ten-year lease on a space within the historic Morris Moor development, which they're keen to transform into a brewery, beer hall, event space and roomy beer garden.

Helping to breathe new life into Moorabbin's 60-year-old Phillip Morris manufacturing site, the new venue will be part of a dynamic hospitality precinct, designed in conjunction with award-winning architects Genton and lauded architecture and interior design firm Techne.

At this stage, details for the Stomping Ground space are scarce, though co-founder Steve Jeffares confirmed there'll be a family-friendly brewpub showcasing a wide range of beers brewed onsite — complete with a 12-hectolitre facility — and a top-notch food offering. There's also no exact date for the site's opening, but expect it to start pouring brews in early 2020. In the meantime, you'll find plenty of the label's fresh brews at its Collingwood home.

Stomping Ground isn't the only local brewery with grand plans in the works, either. Abbotsford's Moon Dog is also currently working on a gigantic new Preston site.

Find Stomping Ground Morris Moor at 1 Cochranes Road, Moorabbin by early 2020.
