Thank You, Mariah!
J9

Thanks to all of you who consistently pack Honolulu Beerworks every Tuesday! We now have a score keeper, the lovely Mariah! There were a lot of points up for grabs last night, and some of you truly took advantage of the opportunity to gamble. Raiders of the Lost Wages netted a whopping 94 points to secure first place. Breakfast at DJ Tiffany's scored the second highest, but was disqualified after recruiting what seemed like half the brewery to join their team, so second place went to Vodka for Breakfast and Dude, Where's My Kyle? lucked out and placed third. Shout out to Footy McFootface for

Wowza!
J9

I know we all love playing quiz at Beerworks on Tuesdays (I never miss it!), but subbing this week I was definitely not expecting 29 teams! I'm so glad so many of you came to listen to me talk into a microphone for 2+ hours! Nearly everyone started out strong, but R4 and R6 were rough and definitely helped separate the winners from the not-winners (none of you are losers, you're all awesome!) Congrats to Gorsuch a Geek for having my favorite team name of the night and shout outs to St. Manti and the Traveling Catfish who placed first, unsurprisingly =), Got Milks who eked into second place by one point, and Pepper's Posse

3.14 Days until St. Paddy's Celebrations
Colette

Everyone wanted a piece of the Geeks Who Drink pie last night.  We kicked off our Pi Day and St. Paddy's day celebrations with 18 teams, many new faces and plenty of familiar ones. Highlights of the night included a high scoring Audio Round 2, an uproar about the acceptance of 1961 as the year of the Cuban Missile Crisis, and just a couple reminders that Honolulu Beerworks is celebrating St. Paddy's Day with some amazing specials... Two hours flew by and we had a tie for 3rd place between My Microwave Takes Better Selfies Than I Do and Live Free and Pi Hard (who won the prize for favorite team name of the night).  My

Fake Thom Yorke Gives Best Concert of His Life...
Colette

Last night's quiz must have been one of your favorites because all 22 teams that started finished all 8 Rounds!  It definitely was a fun one.   Early in the night, Fake Thom Yorke gave the best concert of his life at Honolulu Beerworks.  Although teams couldn't make out the lyrics from ol' mush-mouth, they caught on pretty quick to the tunes.  Our highest scoring round of the night, 7 teams scored a perfect 16 points and earned double if they jokered!  The highlight of the night for me was when the whole bar joined in singing the answers for Round 2. Egos were quickly deflated with our lowest scoring round of the night, Round 3,

Show Me Your Wits
Colette

It was a Bayou Bash at our Mardi Gras quiz! We kicked off the night with a round on recent events, with an average score of just over half correct.  What can we say, it takes the news, and my Amazon Prime orders, an extra day to reach us out here in the middle of the Pacific. Quizzers got creative with their "I have no idea" guesses after I promised beads each time they showed me their WITS. They also indulged on the delectable Honolulu Beerworks brews, crawfish mac & cheese, and the chocolate I brought along for anyone who was about to give it up for Lent.  The one thing I would highly recommend NOT giving up for Lent this year is Geeks Who

Gee Wiz that was fun!
Colette

Hawaii’s first Quiz for a Cause was a major success!  Quizzers were feeling very generous and came out in droves tonight to support Graduate Women in Science (affectionately shortened to GWIS [GEE-WIZ]).  37 teams tested their knowledge to complete for some AWESOME Honolulu Beerworks prizes and the sweet cash prize that comes with our Quiz for a Cause.   Those GWIS ladies may or may not have bribed one of those Geeks Who Drink writers to have an entire science-y round to kick off the night! Over half of the teams scored a perfect 8 on that one- their professors must be proud.   The science-y round was

Quizzin' is for Lovers!
Colette

Love was definitely in the air at Honolulu Beerworks…or was that the smell of their amazing mac & cheese? Either way, the place was packed with people who agreed that there is no better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than with fellow Geeks Who Drink! With my new title, Quizmaster Colette: Ancient Love Goddess, I kicked off my debut night with the apropos song request, “Let’s Get It On.” 16 teams fell under that love spell and joined us for the quiz- many frequent quizzers and some new faces.  Luckily the younguns who started with us left after Round 3 because I would have been very sorry to have them listen to me ask about “dildos stuck

Holy Moley!
J9

It was great to be back at Honolulu Beerworks, and boy were there a lot of teams! Luckily I had our new GWD Quizmaster (QM)-in-training, Colette, by my side and an aptly named team, Hot Ass Quizmasters, cheering us on. It was a pretty decent quiz tonight with some pretty tight scores. In first place we had the Bowling Green Massacre Survivors, in second My Couch Pulls Out But I Don't, and after a sudden death tie-breaker, Cash Money Outside pulled off third place. Sorry, No One Expects the Spanish Inquisition, maybe next time! Speaking of which, next Tuesday is Valentine's Day and Colette's solo debut as QM,

Going out with a bang!
The Weatherman

Aloha for one final time from the land of sour ales and bitter IPA’s. Unfortunately this will be my final blog as quizmaster for Honolulu Beerworks as I am moving to the mainland next week. My last night here may have been my best. There were many laughs, especially in round 2 for the slow-mo songs. I think tonight we had the best team names I’ve seen as well. Names like Patriots by 20, A Pint Full of Refugee Tears, 7 Short of a 12 Pack, and Condoms and Rattlesnakes, Two Things I Don’t Fuck With had me announcing that tonight’s team names are “on point”! Team Suck it Trebek jumped out to a big lead using their joker very

Let’s all hold hands and get through this together.
The Weatherman

Aloha once again from the land of sand in your toes and craft beer in your bellies. Great turn out for trivia night again. Maybe everyone needed some cheering up after last week’s presidential inauguration or maybe because of the fact that another Patriots Super Bowl looms in the coming weeks. To be honest I’m not too upset about either, at least not as upset as I am over the struggle that was round six. As soon as I said, “The theme for this round is Computational Fluid Mechanics,” many beers were chugged and quizzers were running for the emergency exits. However, we all stuck together and turned it around in round seven. Last week’s winners 20% or Bust

The End or Beginning of an Era?
The Weatherman

Aloha from the land of pints and snifters of fresh and delicious beer! Although not as many teams came to play this week as the last two, we still had an interesting night at Honolulu Beerworks. It seemed like everyone was channeling their team names based on the current news with two teams named after Chelsea Manning after her pardon by President Obama. There seemed to be a certain saltiness in the air tonight and it wasn’t from the Bavarian soft pretzels which are so popular here. It may have been from the looming certainty that President Obama will give way to President Trump in less than 2 days. It may also been because team 20% or Bust won the whole thing, and they

IS THIS TRIVIA NIGHT OR COMEDY NIGHT?
The Weatherman

Aloha from the land of growlers of beer on the beach! We had another very successful night at Honolulu Beerworks. I really enjoy this venue and the crowd that we get for trivia night. Once again there was plenty of drama, but also lots of laughter throughout the entire night. The 16 point visual round seemed to be everyone’s go to round to joker and there was lots of shuffling in the standings after scoring that round. It seemed like the whole night was a 4 team battle between Sweatpants Boner, Bid Ladens Live Twin, AHHHH!!!!, and The Munch-Urine Candidate. I had to disqualify Chick Felatio for using too many players, but they were right in there too.

THERES A FIRST TIME FOR EVERYTHING
The Weatherman

Aloha from the best craft brewery in the Pacific! I finally had my first solo night hosting trivia and the evening was filled with plenty of drama and an epic comeback. We had a few issues with the powerpoint (which has become a common theme at this venue). But hey we’re only here to listen to my beautiful voice echo around the fermentation and brite tanks of a brewery right? It was definitely a test to try to get the entire contest in the two hour window with 19 teams. And it was like pulling teeth trying to get people to turn in their answer sheets quickly. Maybe a stricter deadline and countdown is required next time….. Anyway, Meow Meow and Quizlamic

J9

My stint at Beerworks is over. You're all in Dave's hands now! It's been a blast spending Tuesday nights with everyone, and I will miss you all! Last night we had a great turnout of 12 teams, and some fierce competition throughout the majority of the quiz.  Round 6 seemed to shake everyone's confidence, five teams only scored two points! Many teams rebounded in Rounds 7 and 8, but it's almost always the use of the Joker that separates the winners and losers. The Elephant in the Room finished in third (I never did learn who or what was the elephant...) While We Have the Best Words finished second and our reigning champions, Let Me Smell Your Feet,

Tis the Season
J9

As we're in the middle of a QM transition, tonight was my first and last full night at Honolulu Beerworks. We had a great turnout of 16 teams! The most I've seen so far. I was happy to introduce my trainee - who seems to already be quite popular, as evidenced by The David Blake Fan Club. Tonight's quiz seemed particularly difficult with only four teams scoring more than 50 points. Maybe it was the questions (who really knows Dutch painters???) or maybe everyone's brains are already on holiday. The Electoral College Dropouts finished third, The War on ******mas came in second, and our Oahu champions, Don't Mess with Richard Marx,

Double The Fun
Renee

Thank you J-nine for co-hosting tonight as I pass the Quiz Master reigns to you. I can't wait to try and see if I'm actually as good at trivia as I think, cause when the answers are in front of you, everything seems easy (looking at you Trebek).  Honolulu Beerworks was extra festive tonight now that everyone was glittering their balls, no it's not  kinky euphemism - there was lots of crafting going on to bedazzle the Beer Tree. Our players took at break from the pipe cleaners to throw down and Tequila Mockingbird lurking in the far corner came in first. Team Meow Meow's a-mazing kitty shirts were a lucky charm, sending them to second
