One of the most anticipated events on our calendar is back: get ready for HANDMADE 6.

HANDMADE is a celebration of the diversity of wine – delicious drinks, responsible farming, traditional techniques and modern interpretations. We’ll again welcome over 30 of our favourite grape-growers and winemakers at the top of their craft. You’ll sample hand-crafted wines from local, interstate and international producers. And, of course, where there’s wine, there’s great food, music and all-round good times. 

Once again every corner of the pub will be taken over by our favourite wine and food friends. We’ll have substantial snacks available over the bar all day, Brianna & Oliver from The Summertown Aristologist taking over the rotisserie in the garden, and Chris Watson a.k.a. ‘Wats-on the BBQ?‘ will be cranking out smashable mash-ups upstairs.

Handmade is a celebration like no other in Melbourne, and we’re so proud to host it. Tickets on sale now through Eventbrite.

Trivia Night with Cam Smith
Thursday, 27th September, 2018

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.
