If you're a Melbourne Airport regular, you'll know that it's one place where you can never be too spoilt for choice in the food and drinks department. And you'll probably be stoked to learn that ever-popular Collingwood brewery Stomping Ground will soon be among those choices.

Having hosted a pop-up beer garden at the airport for the past two summers, the independent beer label is now set to become a permanent fixture, with plans to open a new brew bar inside Terminal 3 (a domestic terminal). Slated to be up and running by summer, the new venue will feature its own onsite six-hectolitre brewery system, alongside a modern beer hall designed by Studio Y – the same team that scooped a swag of awards for its work on Stomping Ground's original Gipps Street space.

It'll also mark the first-ever independent on-site brewery to call an Australian airport home. Here, you'll be able to settle in pre-flight with a hearty snack, a range of Stomping Ground's core brews and even a few special-edition treats brewed on-site. There'll also be a fridge full of tinnies for take away.

The brewpub's imminent arrival is just one part of a major hospitality refresh planned for Melbourne Airport's Terminals 2 and 3 in the coming months. Acclaimed chef Shane Delia will open his new concept Moors by Shane Delia here, Scott Pickett will unveil a new outpost of his produce-driven Pickett's Deli & Rotisserie, and coffee favourites Cobb Lane, Axil Coffee Roasters and Proud Mary are all set to call the airport home. Over in the international terminal, you'll find a new outpost of St Ali, too.

News of this latest Stomping Ground project comes just one month after the brewery announced plans to open another brewpub as part of Moorabbin's historic Morris Moor development.

Stomping Ground will open within Melbourne Airport's Terminal 3 this summer.
