This year all AFLW matches will be shown on our screens throughout the Public Bar. Catch every AFLW game live and enjoy the footy the way it should be – with cold beers, substantial snacks, parmas and pies. And fries, there should always be fries.

This year, we’ll also be throwing an AFLW Grand Final Party!

Every good football season deserves an epic Grand Final party, and this season is no different. While the date is still TBC (30th or 31st March), our party isn’t. As always, we’ll be open from midday, and you’ll also find:

3 live screens!
$3 pots from 1pm to first goal
Half time house-made sausage rolls 
The Footy Dog: Meatsmith frankfurt, pickles, fireman’s relish, mustard, crispy shallots 
First goal sweep! Proceeds to Victorian Women’s Trust

Builders Arms Hotel Trivia is Here!

7:30pm – second Wednesday of each month
with Cam Smith from Triple R’s ‘Eat It’ food show

Trivia brings people together. It’s the mid-week mood boost that we all need – a few friends, some drinks and dinner, and a wholesome, collaborative activity that everyone can put their minds to.

Builders Arms Hotel Trivia is a little bit different. Hosted by Cam Smith, food guru and host of Triple R’s food show Eat It, with a focus on local music, culture, food, booze and much more. Even sensory rounds – you could be sniffing spices and channeling your inner-Ottolenghi.

Teams of any size and seriousness are welcome – suited to hardened trivia masters as well as more leisurely groups. Hosted in the pub’s Bistro with table service for drinks and dinner, there’s no rush to the bar to get your fish pie or burger order in between rounds. Sit back and relax, and focus all of your energy on the questions at hand. This is the pub trivia you’ve been waiting your whole life for.

There’s also spot prizes for bonus individual questions – so it’s every man/woman for his/herself for a moment of individual glory.


2018 Trivia dates:


Wednesday 13th February
Wednesday 13th March


Wednesday 10th April


To book your team table, email
