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

Adios, 2016!!! And good riddance!
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

We had a festivus pole made of beer kegs!
Renee

It is vast, and reaches the ceiling. As a pole, it's more of a pyramid, but due to it's size, there could be much wrestling under it.    Lessons learned tonight - Jokers can change your life. Or at least bring joy to the world for some lucky teams. O come all ye faithful drinkers to Honolulu Beerworks where a strong showing by Null and Void at the final round saved the airing of grievances. Baby Groot was able to pull into second and returning team chick-a-fil-a-tio placed third.    Poor

We can't all be members of the the AV Club, only the best of us can be.
Renee

Flopuary will be my new go to to describe the release of sequels  that didn't need an initial movie. Thanks team!  I am always impressed by the random knowledge that different teams possess. Sometimes you're like, oh NO ONE will get this, but nope! people totally paid attention in 11th grade.  I also like hearing James Earl Jones pontificate about Baby, Baby, Oh. I need to practice my dulcet tones too.  We had some repeat teams and new teams tonight including two party ladies. Gadhafi has a new bunkmate dominated the rainy and cold (for Hawaii) night, followed by crinkley, and a team has no name.

Back to the Beerworks
Renee

I'd like to thank our guest host Jeanine for running our quiz last week - she's new so big mahalos !  No kings, no gods, only POWERPOINT will bring you to rapture. At least that's how it seemed to stack up tonight with the winning teams arranged right in front of the big TV, han shot first in third, crackly in second and want my pickle in first.  In honor of the Smithsonian inducting emoji, I was pleased by the poop emoji that served as the team name, but still I gotta love returning players, chick-fil-a-tio. And 20% or Bust, the Honolulu Beerworks staff , won not one but two bonus rounds,

Baptism by Fire
J9

(SPOILER ALERT: I survived!) Aloha, friends! Well due to a series of unfortunate events, my second night of training became my first solo run. The players were gentle with my first time and we all had a fun and climatic night! Everyone certainly knew their drugs and alcohol in Round 4, not sure if that says something about the players or the questions… However, many teams struggled to identity the correct dearly departed Leonard. Despite some super-fast audio clips in Round 7, the teams proved their muster and identified nearly all the movies. (Nuclear) Winter is Coming took a strong early lead, but Von Miller Sex Tape Stunt Doubles kept up

MSNBC was on the whole time
Renee

It was a crowded, but subdued state holiday night at Honolulu Beerworks since most people were there to watch the silent TV. With the exception of 20% or Bust (OUR CHAMPIONS) We had all new teams for trivia night, including minors drinking - which violated the 6 person per team rule, but because half of the team was under the age of 6 we let it slide. I suspect the usual crowd was probably watching the election results  - which start coming in at 3 pm HST and resulted in zero work getting done in the few offices that are open on election. Second Place went to the Smokehouse Boys visiting on a rotation from Japan. They

Sugar High - Sugar Low
Renee

Jimmies were rustled tonight as team Meow Meow placed first.  Challengers Chick-fil-a-tio (say it out loud) entered the Beerworks and brought a showdown to Han shot First for second place, winning in a sudden death question. Favorite repeated response of the night was "ham sandwich" as a default answer to all unknowns. Not surprisingly for Hawaii, a lot of us have banana ketchup at home, but more have probably eaten it at Jollibee. Due to time differences, will we know who is President next week before we start the quiz ? Will everyone be too drunk to even answer questions? Inquiring minds want to know.
