Go With Your Catgut
Jizelle

The misting rain kept us from quizzing outside in the beer garden last night but it didn’t stop my players from kicking ass! The quiz was all over the place last night (what else is new, amiright??) and we had some teams struggle but they weren’t complaining. We had rounds on Oklahoma, the late Roger Moore and animal parts….I know. One of my recurring teams who went by Peas & Carrots were only down one point from first place by the end of the night and they told me had they gone with their gut on two questions, they would have won….it’s just like I always say in Quiz and in life, go with your catgut.

Lady Gaga: The Poor Man’s Gloria Estefan
Jizelle

The temperature in Middletown made it to 92 degrees today which meant that we were going to be quizzing in the beer garden! With Sophia nailing it behind the bar slinging brews, Matty holding it down for those who couldn’t handle the heat and me behind the mic it was guaranteed to be a great night! Expecting a huge crowd tonight we had a surprisingly low number of attendance which isn’t always a terrible thing. We had a warm night of cold beer and good times. We had somewhat of a challenging time with a couple of rounds but my geeks are resilient and smart (include smart asses) We had some newbies and some returning newbies which I love to

Pedro Swayze vs. Hemingway
Jizelle

Spring was upon us for a brief time and we had a taste of Quiz Night outside in the Beer Garden. Unfortunately, it’s been a little chilly for us to think and drink outside so let’s hope for warm weather so we can answer ridiculous questions outdoors. We were inside the brewery tonight. It was warm and familiar and I think my quizzers thought so too. Tonight’s quiz was all over the place. Kind of like my play list. I have to say that my favorite round had to be Round 2. The audio was cover songs by The Swedish Chef including but not limited to, Four Non Blondes, Stevie Nicks and Marilyn Manson. Needless to say, it was super funny.

Does Size Really Matter Though?
Jizelle

Tonight we had a substantially smaller crown but that did NOT mean less fun. With five teams playing tonight at Clemson Bros. Brewery notoriously large crowd, we definitely had good time. We were missing some regulars, which naturally made me worry like a woman suffering with “empty nest” syndrome. Mother Nature threw us a minor league curveball as the temperature dropped quite a bit and there was possible rain in the forecast which forced us to hold the quiz indoors. Just so ya’ll know, if it’s warm out and there isn't a chance of rain, we’ll be quizzing in the beer garden. If you haven’t experienced Clemson Bros. Brewery Beer Garden yet….you should.

GWD Beer Garden Takeover!
Jizelle

Last night was our very first night hosting GWD in the Beer Garden at Clemson Bros. Brewery. We had 11 teams in total and it was a good crowd! Everyone seemed to like the atmosphere so as long as the weather cooperates, we will continue to have our weekly quizzes outside. It’s like in college when it was nice outside and you could bet any amount of money that there would be one hippy in the group that asks the professor “Can we have class outside today?” Except this time I’m the professor and the hippy and I love hippies so clearly I say “hell yes.” We had Sophia outside with

I Was Gonna Play GWD But Then I Got High...
Jizelle

It was my first week back hosting Clemson Bros. Brewery GWD since my three week hiatus and I certainly felt the love. As always it was a crowded night but we had a good time anyhow. I had a very (maybe not so) subtle theme within my music selection last night that ranged from Afroman’s “Because I Got HIgh” to Jimi Hendrix “Purple Haze.” For those of you who celebrate the Holidaze of 4/20-- I salute you. We at Clemson were a tad more focused on the beer aspect. We had some people join the quiz late because they saw how much fun we were having and must have gotten a wicked case of FOMO (F

QuizMaster Rick in Da House
Rick

So I have been a quizmaster for almost 6 months and have loved every minute of it. I have met some great people, sampled some great beer and have visited a bunch of great establishments. Thursday was no different as I took on quiz duties for my good friend, and fellow quizmaster, Jizelle at Clemson Brother’s Brewery.   I would be remiss if I didn’t give a shout out and congratulations to Jizelle and her new wife, Rose, on the occasion of their recent nuptials! They were fresh off their honeymoon as they stopped by Clemson to take part in the quiz (it was Jizelle’s first time participating) and no doubt to make sure I didn’t screw it up…which

Oh Look, It's Kendall Jenner With a Pepsi
Emma

Another fine week at Geeks Who Drink with Clemson Brothers in Middletown! After some technological issues last week, the smoothness of this week was a breath of fresh air! Shoutout to the crew of Clemson Brothers and the Geeks AV team. With things running so smoothly this week there isn't much to report! Almost everyone in attendance at the restaurant was participating in the quiz, which really shows how much the brand is getting out there! I had my first ever tiebreaker round, as two teams battled it out for second place. Sadly, neither team was interested in a dance off or arm wrestling competition, so sudden death round it was! Finally, we had a bevy of really great team

Lets Just Blow Your Ear Off For One Moment
Emma

Howdy Gang! Thanks for the extra wait, personal life always intersects with dat business life. But, anyway! Thursday night at Clemson Brothers was a success! It was my first time ever in a place that big (or could accommodate twenty teams, at least!) and I was definitely out of my element at first. We had a few hiccups in the beginning with some technical issues, speakers deciding they can blow your ears off, but they were resolved as much as they possibly could be hahah! Thankfully, we had a more than accommodating audience of teams and we were off to the races! With a couple rounds really throwing some teams off, we had quite the interesting night!

Everyone Loves a Wookiee warrior
Jizelle

I’m going to start by being totally honest (as if I’ve never started off that way before) tonight at Clemson Bros. Brewery...was….wild. With 20 teams, there was NO WAY we were going to keep it within two hours. The surprise came when almost all of our teams stayed to the very end to see who would leave with a Clemson Bros. gift certificate and bragging rights and who would leave thirsty to win the following Thursday. Now, don’t get me wrong; I loooooove a good Quiz Night but holy shit was I busy. I had people coming into the brewery while reading Round 4 questions and STILL wanting to play. I mean, who am I to tell them

Help! My Microwave Is Spying On Me!
Jizelle

I think that each week I have more and more fun and I’d like to think my quizzers feel the same way. Last night at Clemson Bros. I was feeling a bit silly so there was a little chatter on the mic. My quizzers never fail to entertain me with their bogus answers. Storm Stella didn't put a damper on things because my quizzers know just how to plow right on through. Team Chazzz provided a beautiful answer to Round 8 question 5--- “In the wake of Winter Storm Stella, Boston and Jersey is getting plowed by trucks bearing ads for what Montreal-based smut site?” Correct answer: Pornhub….my favorite answer

This Week Couldn't Have Gone Gooder
Jizelle

  Greetings fellow blog readers! Last night was a beautifully quiet night unlike the normal packed house. Don’t get me wrong, I love when we have close to 20 teams because that means I get to see more and more ridiculous answers such as “we need more points”  and “who gives a fuck?” We had a lovely 8 teams playing including a few a new faces! I’m grateful for the small crowd as a Quiz Master simply because of Round 3. How difficult it would have been to try and score skimming through 12 Shakespearean tragedies names. The real tragedy would have been how long it would have taken me if I had 20 teams. I blame

Skeet Skeet Skeet
Jizelle

Never a dull moment at Clemson Bros. Brewery on Thursday nights. We were busy as hell but it was totes worth it! We had 19 teams but only 17 turned in their answers (I assume they were either ashamed of their handwriting or they just got drunk, judgement free zone.) We had some great team names last night including some newbies who will receive honorable mentions such as IT Bitches--these guys were a little older than average (they were hilarious too!) and my favorite answer given was from Round 8 “Random Knowledge” where the question was “Three points: All bordering China and two ending in "stan" - name three of the four countries with the

I Can't Look at a Corona the Same Way
Jizelle

Good times had at Clemson Bros. this week. As always, the the craft beer was flowing and we added up to 14 teams this week! I saw some new faces which is always a treat. I also saw some new faces that seemed to enjoy themselves. We had a brand new group tonight who are students at the local medical school, Touro College. Now, these guys (and a girl) were goofs from the get. I dropped off an answer booklet and introduced them to the game and at that time advised them that they won’t be given a pencil but rather they should use their buffalo sauce ridden fingers to write in their answers. It was a nice introduction, I mean...I thought so at least.

We Didn't Have Quiz Last Week So Obviously This Week Was Going To Be A HIT!!
Jizelle

I’ll start off by saying that there was no GWD Quiz night at Clemson Bros. Brewery last week because Ol’ Man winter decided to show his face and snow everyone in. My poor(brewery) kids were deprived of their weekly fun so this week they came back ready to rock and roll!  We had a full house of people who were ALL IN on quiz. We had a total of 17 teams who participated last night and it was a close call at times. We had new faces that were first timers back on January 26th when Clemson Bros. had their debut Quiz Night and those new faces are starting to become our regulars. Some of the questions our players felt were challenging but that didn’t

Ricky Martin Really Does Live His Vida Loca
Jizelle

So last night was officially Clemson Bros. Brewery second quiz night and it was even more fun than last week! I have a good feeling about this place! First, the beer is deeeeeelicious and second my players were in it to win it last night. We had music playing in between questions and rounds that consisted of AC/DC (threw TNT in there after round 1!), Blondie and yes, the “Cash Me Outside How Bow Dah” remix. This week the questions were a bit challenging at times but that didn’t stump all of my players. I have to reveal what my absolute favorite part of the night was and it was scoring round four question eight, “Giving a whole new meaning
