Argentinian pop-up beer garden.

With Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s EVITA coming to Arts Centre Melbourne this summer, Collingwood brewery, Stomping Ground Brewing Co, will be celebrating the spirit, sounds, smells and tastes of Argentina by creating a colourful, engaging and fun pop-up beer garden.

Taking over the Arts Centre Melbourne forecourt, Stomping Ground La Boca will transport you to Argentina in a fully immersive experience through food, culture, music and live entertainment with Argentinian inspired performances, tango lessons and much more.

Alongside a range of Stomping Ground Brewing Co's locally brewed beers, including a new Argentinian-inspired lager brewed exclusively for the beer garden, visitors will be able to enjoy a range of Argentinian wines and food delights from Asado.

The sweet and savory delicacies on offer will pay homage to the flavours of Argentina including traditional beef empanadas; cheese empanadas; Choripán, an Argentinian chorizo roll with chimichurri; Lomito, an O’Connor’s grass-fed steak sandwich; Ensalada, a coal roasted vegetable salad with chickpeas and ancient grains; and Papas, which are Argo style fries with chipotle. For dessert, summer lovers can indulge in dulce de leche caramel soft serve ice cream or Alfajor, an Argentinian cookie with dulce de leche.

The flavours of Argentina will be highlighted throughout Arts Centre Melbourne’s dining options, ensuring a delicious food experience all summer.
