Booking a function can seem challenging at first - but we're here to help! We've compiled a couple questions to get you started before enquiring:

  • How many guests do I have?

  • Is this a stand up or sit down event?

  • Am I shouting everyone food and beverage?

  • Do my guests have any known dietary requirements?

  • Am I working towards a specific budget?

Additionally, read on for a few frequently asked questions and items to keep in mind when booking an event at Stomping Ground Brewery & Beer Hall. 

Keep in mind: 
Getting Here: Stomping Ground is conveniently located steps away from Collingwood Station and accessible by both train and bus. Street parking is available but not guaranteed. 

Guest Numbers: While the venue is quite open plan, function areas have a maximum capacity. We cannot guarantee entry or access for extra guests if your numbers grow unexpectedly. 

Entry: Function bookings will be given 1 hour from the commencement of their event for all guests to enter. In the unlikely event there is a line at the door, this is the allotted time guests are welcome to enter ahead of the queue. After 1 hour, any additional guests may have to queue for entry.

Out By Time:  Functions are booked in 5-hour increments. Daytime functions will often have an event booked after theirs and may need to vacate. Evening functions are welcome to stay beyond their 5-hour period, provided guests adhere to all RSA regulations. 


Q. Our guests have a dietary requirement - is this OK? 
A. Of course! Let us know and we'll work out a replacement item wherever possible. Your finalised guest numbers and any dietary requirements are due to the venue 10 days prior to your event. 

Q. Can we bring decorations?  
A. You are welcome to bring along balloons or any decoration that does not utilise adhesives or glitter. 

Q. Can I bring a cake?
A. Yes, you can. Should you wish for our staff to provide candles, plate and serve your cake for you, a $2pp cakeage fee applies. However, you're welcome to pop in with your own disposable plates, candles and cutlery at no additional charge (cupcakes or donuts are also a great alternative).

Q. Can we book entertainment? 
A. As Stomping Ground is an open-plan venue, we do not allow amplified speeches (including award ceremonies or trivia events) or live music of any kind with the exception of weekday half-venue hire.
