It’s been way too long between drinks. So Collingwood brewery Stomping Ground wants to shout your first post-lockdown beer.

There are some catches though. You’ll have to wait until Melbourne's pubs and bars start reopening from June 1. And in line with government restrictions, you’ll have to be eating a meal to redeem your freebie.

There are 5000 brews to give away, but for your chance to score one you’ll need to register online in advance.

The giveaway will happen across 50 venues including north-side spots Stomping Ground, Neighbourhood Wine, Old Palm Liquor, Bar Romantica and Marquis of Lorne, as well as Mjølner and Whitehart in the CBD, and the south’s Union House and Mount Erica Hotel. Find the list of venues here.

Register your details here. Winners will be contacted before June 1 with more details.
