Episode 4: An Elegy to Rowdy Roddy Piper
RESII

Declaration Brewing continues to better itself. A new record 15 teams converged to kick ass and chew bubblegum. The team that kicked the most ass was More Better. Two teams, Betsy Ross and the Supremes and Drinks Who Geek, finished second. The Enid Coleslaws and The Midwesties tied for fourth.   If sentence two felt familiar, it’s because I wrote a sentence similar last week. Both sentences were homages to the best line in They Live, a great film starring the now-sadly-deceased Rowdy Roddy Piper.   Even if you don’t like wrestling, you could tell

RESII was born in the 17th state of the union under the sweltering summer sun.  From humble beginnings, this future Buckeye became third best player on the middle school chess team (out of four).  After that, his life became a blur of Mountain Dew and worse decisions.  In his spare time, he enjoys highlights of Buster Tillman, not giving change to the homeless, and Harper Lee novels.  This is his first production of Geeks Who Drink.  He would like to thank his lucky stars and all his deceased pets for helping him cope with the good times.

Tonight's Quiz Brought to You By Bulgarian Dating Sites
David Mitchell

Good evening everyone, tonight's quiz had us go through an epic journey through the imagination...or something like that. Round one had us studying cheap shills, y'know like Apple and XBox. Next we took a lesson in learning how to SHUT THE FUCK UP in French, round three had us using those French skills to woo lovers on the creepiest websites NOT TINDER GODDAMMIT! I've used most of those sites, and most of them suck.   Round four was all about the Brits and JK Rowling, which we followed up by travelling through movieland to expand Liongate to faux Lions. Then we landed in Bulgaria and learned about everyone's favorite country. Following that we listened to some Knights

I Bet You Never Thought We'd Put Bulgaria in this Quiz!
Lord of Pirates

Hey Huberts. So clearly I am not the majestic sex beast that is your usual quizmaster Alex. I'm the cheap store-brand variety. My name is Nate and despite the fact that "I don't know what trees are", and "my mom still buys my clothes for me", and "I get scared of my own farts" I feel that I'm more than adequate in taking on Alex's enormous shoes (you know what that means ladies).   In Round One of tonight's quiz we asked teams to remember all the great times they saw a poorly- placed product in one of their favorite movies. Also ads featuring children, because life isn't cruel enough? Anyway, our teams were

Old Faces and New Places
Nicknames are Hard

In 1874, the Centennial of Chemistry in the U.S. was celebrated by chemists meeting at Northumberland, Pa. where Joseph Priestley was buried after spending the last years of his life in America. The chemists commemorated the 100th anniversary of Priestley's discovery of the element oxygen on 1 Aug 1774, regarded as the most important link in the chain of events which eventually led to the overthrow of the phlogistic hypothesis. The memorial exercises were planned to include an address by Professor Joseph Henry, an Essay on American Contributions to Chemistry by Benjamin Silliman, Jr., and a loan exhibition of Priestley's apparatus, books and manuscripts. The event was initiated by Henry Bolton.   I'm

Ya Filthy Animals!
Lady Busty

I have a great deal on my mind, as I think about what happened to Cecil the Lion, how it's not an isolated incident, how trophy hunting is much the same in animals as in humans ("notch in my belt"), and how we'll be outraged until the next thing outrages us. Yes, I'm a bit cynical today. It keeps any optimism I have in check. But, I don't want to burden anyone with my deep, dark thoughts on animal nature. I lost a gosling yesterday and I'm still upset about it. I don't need to bring anyone down with me. I just want to take the time to thank friends for being there, whether I knew at the time that I needed you or not. I have the best friends in the world. You know who you are.

I was born in Scotland to American parents. I spent most of my youth moving around the world as a Navy brat (think: every two years), spending the most time in the UK. Don't let this Midwestern accent fool you. I'm a Brit. Try as I might, I will pronounce and spell things the British way (it is English, after all) and can have a dry, naughty sense of humour. I love puns to no end. Though I am homesick for the Isles, I have adopted Tucson as my home. I've done enough moving for anyone.

What else? I am a Gemini, so there is (at least) one other side to me and I am incredibly indecisive. If there is ever a decision to be made, please, make it for me. I'll be forever in your debt.

I am a Lady, in that I own land in Scotland: two parcels .

I am honest, though I would never say, to any fault. Try me. I'll answer pretty much any question.

I have two degress in Theatre and run the library at a middle school.

I live with my husband, our seven rabbits, six chickens, four ducks, four cats, two dogs, two goats, and two turtles.

Adam Jarmon Brown

Alas, QM Drew has moved on. And I am your new regular QM Adam. Tonight was my first night as your new QM and we had a fairly packed house with 14 teams. And and impressive noise level to boot. The quiz went smashingly! We had eight rounds of quiz that you you all did amazingly at. Our themes for the night were: 1. All cheap shills, great and small. - About product placements and ads featuring kids. 2. Ferme La Boosh (audio round!) 3. This round is lonely and desperate. - A speed round on dating sites 4.

She finally came...
KevinSpaulding

Thursday night marked a little bit of history for Geeks Who Drink at Adventure Brewing Company. This happened to be the one year mark that Adventure Brewing has had Geeks Who Drink come in on a weekly basis to host quizzes every Thursday night. It also happened to be the first time that my lovely wife had an opportunity to stop by and play. She was super excited that our oldest son (almost 3) stayed at the beach with his grandparents that would make it possible for her to come to trivia with just our 10 week old.  With rounds about shutting your mouth, ad placements, and lonely people, my wife and everyone else were in for a fun and competitive night. Speaking of the lonely people

The Queen Is Boned
Tim

Greetings.   This quiz was a bit of a toughy, and took most of you to the woodshed, with one notable, victorious exception. The music round on shutting up was rough, and round eight was even worse. There were not many high jokered scores to be had. However, a hard quiz doesnt mean an un-fun quiz, and I think we all managed to have a good time. We learned in round seven that the Queen of England is screwed should she ever need to call upon her knights, as they all seem to be old or dead actors. Good luck with that. Where is Sir Lancelot when you need him?   Anyway, congrats to BSA, More Like BSGay, Am I Right? for grabbing the lead

Hey gang,

I have been a quizmaster since all the way back in early 2014. I am a pop culture sponge and have a head full of useless knowledge, so I figured I would put it to work in the best way possible: barking trivia questions at drunkards. When I am not hanging out in bars trying to make people feel stupid, I am a humble public servant in the employ of the United States Government.

I am a worldly gentleman of dignity and refinement, and a student of the human condition. That is a nice way of saying I am a snarky asshole who judges people while doing nothing meaningful with his life. I am a sci-fi nerd, a fantasy nerd, a science nerd and a history nerd (a useless college major, I have discovered to my dismay). 

Regardless, I am happy to be part of the Geeks family and look forward to quizzing in all of your faces!

Why aren’t the blocks falling?
NateFincher

The place was full and the Tetris blocks were posed to fall on us, but they stayed hanging above, casting a nice glow over the venue. Later I found out that the Tetris blocks were made by the bar staff! HOLY COW THAT’S AWESOME!!! So how much is it gonna cost me to have a set made for my place? Round three made me chuckle…I read the hint twice and still people were asking “so like grindr?”…uh no grindr is an app! Like Tinder…duh. Even one person asked why GWD was singling out the users of these site, because only people who use them really know about them.  I told them it was ok because 80% of the people there used at least one of these, and

I dont think FarmersOnly.com has that many visitors
TaylorCrane

In the round in which I asked you to name 8 of the most popular dating websites no team had a perfect round. Mainly because almost every team listed Farmers Only. A site that I thought was a weird SNL joke when I first saw the commercial but is unfortunately very very real. Its just not that popular. How many farmers do you know? Not many. And I feel liike they dont use the internet all that much.  We had 17 teams last night at Elbow Room. That is our biggest turnout yet. It was pretty impressive. I'm pumped that you guys are inviting more and more people. But lets break 20. That would be pretty cool right? Just do it! Last night saw 17 teams,

Only somewhat desperate and lonely...
Christopher

Last night's quiz was bittersweet.  We had a fun time as usual, but two of my regulars from The Care Bear Stare are moving to Omaha, and thus I'm sad we won't be seeing them anymore.  But it's not all bad news for the Care Bear Stare, as they came back to take first place after being absent last week.  Speaking of new winners, brand new team the Milford Men (which included a lady) placed second in their first ever visit to Mrs Murphy & Sons.  And speaking of seconds... While we learned the top ten online dating sites, we found out that Ashley Madison is not on that list.  I'm not going to mention names (yeah, I am), but

Hello, Hello!   Yesterday was a hot day but that didn't stop you World of Beer quizzers from showing up in force. We started out the quiz with standing room only, good guy Veronica was giving teams the high sign from the stage every time a table opened up. We had a team in the house finishing up a perfect quiz week, way to go There's a snake in my boobs on hitting a quiz every night this week!

Oh hello there! I'm David, The finest Okie you will ever meet (that means Oklahoma) outside of the fine state shaped like a pan. I like to spend my time reading books or going on adventures in the real world. Nothing says relaxation like a classic cocktail or Scotch on the rocks and if the mood strikes me a fine cigar. If the moon hits me right I'll probably start singing a song at random or climb the tallest thing I can find. One of my crowning achievements was drinking a beer in every building on the OSU campus while attending. My new goal is every roof in downtown Austin, if you can help you will be my hero.

Shut Up and Dance... Just Not with Me
El Jefe

Tonight my quiz masterness was put to the test. PacMan Jackman approached me at the first scoring break to dispute their score; they felt they had been shorted two points. A bead of sweat rolled down my forehead. “Had I made a mistake?” I cringed. “Am I not a worthy Quiz Master? What is the meaning of life??” I shook it off quickly. “No.” I assured myself. “I don’t make mistakes.”   I shuffled through the answer sheets from the first three rounds and found the disputed score. It was Round 2, audio round, and they had put “Shut Up and Dance With Me” as the song title of the hit by Walk the

Hear ye, hear ye, Quizzers! It's Friday evening, and I'm sure you're about to start your weekend with a flagon of ale or some roasted meat or some other menu option offered at a Medieval Times historical recreation restaurant, but before you tuck into that food, tuck into this recap of last night's quiz at Pumping Co!   Last night at Pumping Co we featured an audio round where our Quizzers had to identity the celebrity knight or dame, and it got me thinking about knighthood.

The quiz of quizzes!
TheHypnotoad

It was definitely a Motown inspired evening after listening to Marvin Gaye earlier in the day, I hope everyone was alright with the slow jams. I had my first ever tiebreaker at the Warehouse tonight, and even that wasn't enough to settle it! Round one was full of product placement large and small, but how could any computer company advertise more than Apple? Music round told you to shut yo mouf in a variable number of ways, but I prefer "Shut Up and Dance". The timed round taught me about the apparently very popular "Farmer's Only" dating site and I'm as confused now as I was then. The J.K. Rowling round also reminded us that she HAS written something other than Harry
