2017: Tasty Brewery. Beers Ingested Gracefully
hannibal_edsoe

Hey there Beaver Nation! Another quiz down and another week smarter (at least I hope!). In case you wondering, the title of our blog today should take you down memory lane to last night. The three word clues that were the first three letters of the answer. Can you guess what the answer is to the title? Yep! You got it- Big Beavery Brewery! Thanks again Raeden for keeping up filled on our beers and our brats. Hmmm, let’s talk about a few other rounds from last night, shall we? Our round on A United Whatever of Wherever showed up we all might not know too much about the world around us. After all there are 196 countries in the world and we were looking for just 8, so if you got

“This is why I don’t quiz in Fort Collins.”
Weapon Z

One of the greatest joys about subbing at a venue is all of the unknowns.  How does the audio equipment work?  Will the quizzers there like me?  How badly am I going to screw this up?  Wait…hold up.  Full stop.  That’s not a joy of subbing.  That literally describes every night of quiz for me.  But one thing that is true when subbing is that I’m get to meet lots of new players and bar staff.  Sometimes meeting these people is good, other times it’s not as good.  But one thing is certain, I always walk away with a new quote from someone. There is one question that I’m sure to receive every time

Quizmaster Zach is an avid fan of Rush: the Holy Triumvirate, and spends the majority of his free time watching irreverent comedies such as Portlandia, Trailer Park Boys and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. When he is away from the television he plays ice hockey (poorly), hosts quiz (poorly) and eats food (poorly). To be honest, QM Zach does most things poorly but that's easily overlooked because he is so good looking. The only thing he is good at is doing a karaoke version of YYZ. You can see QM Zach live and in person and judge him accordingly every Saturday night at 8:00 PM at Krazy Karls pizza. Just don't look directly into his eyes. You might never be able to look away.

Pump Up the Decibels
hannibal_edsoe

Hey Beaver Nation! Another fun (and maybe drunk) night under our belts. We had quite a packed and loud house last night, the more the merrier! Shout out to Raeden, our wonderful beertender last night.  Last night we named folks with the middle name of "the" and spent a lot of time talking about France, Canada, and a French-Canadian singer. The best round of the night (point-wise) was definitely round 2. In round 2 we did our monster-mashups where you named both artists in the song. Most teams scored between 13-15. One team was not as musically inclined as the rest of us, but we still love them. Our random knowledge round 8 gave us some high scores as well, but also showed

Code Name: Chris Martin
hannibal_edsoe

Hey there Beaver Nation! Another fun night under our belts. Thank you for obeying rule #2 and not messing with the quizmaster last night. Man that Nyquil sure made for a fun replacement of beer! All jokes aside, thank you for still loving me even though I was all nose. Shout out to our Beertender KatiLyn for keeping us topped off last night (and don’t forget the delicious brats). Overall, our quiz last night brought us a few laughs. I mean, who know Manny Pacquiao could sing like that! You’re welcome for playing that song during our break. I think most of us would agree we would listen to that a couple more times before we would listed to Chris Martin cover some more songs.

Symphony of the Swedish Oboe
hannibal_edsoe

Hey Big Beavertons! Thank you for trekking through the cold to make it to another fun night of Geeks Who Drink. Big thank you to our new friend Allie, who kept us beer-drated (hydrated with beer, of course). We had some pretty fun rounds last night. Our favorites were on Sweden and the Oboe. Okay, that might be a lie, but it made for a great title. We had some pretty high scoring rounds for both the audio round 2 (average of 10) and the video round 7 (average of 7). You guys are pretty in tune (haha see what I did there?) with your hits from this day years ago and can certainly name movies of epic nights. Other fun things that happened during the quiz last night- I pronounced

All Star on Repeat
hannibal_edsoe

Hello Big Beaver Nation! Another quiz under our belts, and another week smarter! Thank you all again for coming out last night, we had a fun time (like always). Shout out to our beertender KatiLyn for keeping everyone hydrated! We had some pretty excellent rounds last night. My personal favorite was round 7, our video round. We heard All Star by Smashmouth at least, eh, 18 times last night? It is still stuck in my head this morning. I suppose it could be a worse song, like Safety Dance. Though, our highest scoring round last night came during our visual round which was worth an astonishing 16 points. Most teams used their jokers on round 5, and I can’t blame them because the

This One Is For Kayla
hannibal_edsoe

Last night’s quiz was an excellent quiz with some heart breaking news. Our favorite Thursday beer master Kayla is leaving us but we all wish her the best in her future, and will certainly miss her putting up with our Geeking and Drinking on Thursdays. Speaking of sad news, doesn’t everything sound sadder when it is sloooowwwed down? Our round 2 last night gave us some songs slowed down that we will not forget. Especially the crowd favorites Baby Got Back and My Heart Will Go On. Am I the only one who thinks Celine Dion sounded better that way? No? Eh. Round 3 was by far the best round for everyone last night, with the lowest score being a 7. You all are Lama and

Republican Appointed White-dudes: Whitey, Yelly, Grumpy, and Tony Stark?
hannibal_edsoe

Happy Friday my Big Beaver peeps! Thank you for making the cold and icy trek for our weekly pub quiz last night. We had a smaller group last night but don’t worry, it was a rowdy one. For our quiz last night, we had a 40th birthday celebration for the hardly-aging Shakira. We named other kinda- Spanish-language songs and their artists. The average score for that round (round 2) was 9, which is pretty impressive, ¡Camino a seguir! Round 3 tested our knowledge of space cancer. You had to tell me if a described disease was real or a work of science fiction. We were all pretty surprised to find out Cordyceps was a real disease (mind blown, literally) and

hannibal_edsoe

Thank you to everyone who came out last night for Quiz! A big shout out to That’s an Alternative Fact, Jack! for an inspiring (and my favorite) team name. Let’s go over a few more alternative facts of the night, shall we? Alternative fact #1: Current HBO Shows. Sarah Jessica Parker vehicles. Things you can do to your husband. Answer: Blumpkin! (Nice one, guys.) Alternative fact #2: YouTube singers do much better covers than the original artists. Alternative fact #3: The last words to the Harry Potter series was “So he lived”. (And I thought you all were HP fans). Alternative fact #4: Everyone did the best during round

Best Place to Quiz: Beer is Great
hannibal_edsoe

See what I did there with the title? Huh, huh? If not, take a stroll down memory lane to round one of last night’s awesome quiz. In round one, we gave you a category and a three word clue with the first letters of the clue words being the first three letters of the answer. You all pretty much nailed that round. Oh, by the way, the answer to the title is…. Big Beaver Brewery! But you already knew Big Beaver is the best place to quiz! Rounds two and three were a little perplexing at first, but you all got it in the end. In round two we guessed the musician and the president that musician performed for, two teams ended up with 13 points! Look at you go Lumpy

Fire Water.... Pee?
hannibal_edsoe

What a lovely evening with some of my favorite quizzers! I looked forward to mispronouncing smart people words in front of you guys all week (just kidding, but I will work on archipelago for next time). We had a great turn out last night of 13 teams. Even though the final scores ranged from 70 to 22, you all had a lot in common. For example, you are all pretty up to date with your elemental tunes and are surprisingly great at recognizing TV shows just by listening to the audio. On the flip side, we got a little salty on the piss jokes about The Orange One, our average for round 4 was a whopping 3 points. I am still laughing that many of you wrote an “Eye for an Eye” as

Jane who? No one here knows.
hannibal_edsoe

After a long and lonely 2 weeks with no quiz it was a true delight to see all of your bright, shiny, and very cold faces! Thank you for making my first 100% solo quiz such a blast. I was amazed that there were so many of you there. I bet 90% of you had a snow day from work, but I am glad to know a little beer will get you to risk it on the icy roads (but seriously- I hope everyone made it home safe). Tonight we learned a lot of CRAP (like the theme for round one) and a few good questions an amnesiac would ask to a shitty doctor. Our biggest downfall of the night was our round on Janes. Unfortunately, if you just wrote “Jane” it did not get you a point, but good job because

Posthumously Fumble
hannibal_edsoe

Last night at Big Beaver Brewery we had some beer, had some laughs, and quizzed real hard. We learned that I have a pronunciation problem (I will call my memoir Posthumously Fumble), that no one in attendance knows much about Yugoslavia, and that everyone is pretty familiar with our good ol’ neighbors from the Great White North. In round 2 we heard some great cover songs (and some not so great ones too- thanks Peter Griffin) that proved to us you all are pretty Smooth (like the answer to question 5)! Our teams kicked ass last night, but the team who kicked the most ass was Jerk Store, coming out on top with the W. Quizbillies took home second

​Wasn’t Hannah awesome?!  You guys are a lucky lot to have a sassy, sweet Quizmistress here at Big Beaver!  Don’t give her too much shit, okay? Or do, I’m not your Mom! Quiz tonight had rounds that covered people who should die (immediately), famous books, Donny Osmond, old pictures, the 12 Days of Christmas, strange holiday traditions, and recent things that have happened.  And, as always, we finished things up with a round of absolute randomness. Oh, and don't forget:  Shake It OFF, Beaver fans! It’s fraking freezing out there, so make sure to keep warm, bring your pets inside (that’s not cool, guys, don’t be an animal

Soooo… how about that sports ball game, guys?  Who knew that Dallas could suck so much against the sucky Vikings, but hey, I am playing against a guy with Dak, so I’m down with it!  Somehow they still pulled a win off... oh well! Oh, and cheers to all of us surviving Thanksgiving!  I know we had several teams tonight drinking a little more than usual as they worked out their recovery of the holiday.  Cheers, guys! Rounds covered BO, Netflix and Chill, Rosa Parks, Flag Burning, and Cubans.  After an amazing battle of the wits, team Fuck That, I'll Just Make A Copy #SaveYeezus

BIG BEAVER!!!  What an honor to get to host at the infamous Big Beaver!  Y’all are awesome, the beer is delicious, and we got to keep an eye on the awesome sportsball game, which is always a plus.  It was everything I had hoped it would be.  I am so looking forward to hosting for you again after Thanksgiving! Quiz covered all kinds of greatness, from 90 year-olds to wild animals (you guys really know your wildlife!) to anger and mental illness to magazines.  After a battle of the wits, team The Team She Told You Not To Worry About took home the win.  CONGRATS!
