'geeks who drink' pub quiz

  • Beef & Barley 3001 North Ashland Avenue Chicago, IL, 60657 United States (map)

It's fair to say that nobody likes Mondays.  Well. here at Beef & Barley we decided it was time to do something about that.  Geeks Who Drink are now at Beef & Barley every Monday at 8:00pm.

Who are the geeks who drink?

Geeks Who Drink is a Denver-based company that hosts bar trivia at over 600 pubs and restaurants in 35 states. Their quiz is a collective effort of dozens of quizmasters, writers, fact-checkers, graphic designers and artists

What's the quiz format like?

The quiz consists of eight rounds of eight questions each, played by teams of up to six people. Questions are read aloud by the quizmaster and teams write down the answers, turning them in at the end of each round.

Rounds 1,  4 and 6 are themed rounds – anything from “Eight Questions About Sex That Won’t Make You Too Uncomfortable” to “TV Shows Your Parents Watch.” Round 2 is a music round worth double points: name the artist and title for each song clip. Round 3 is a multiple choice round or a speed round. Round 5 is a visual round based on a printed handout. The all-audio Round 7 usually covers movies or TV shows, and is worth the standard eight points. Finally, Round 8 is always 16 points on Random Knowledge.

One round can be jokered, doubling your points for that round only (yes, the 16-point rounds are fair game). The team with the most points after eight rounds is the winner.

Quizzes are free to play and prizes will be awarded to the top 3 finishing teams, and somewhere in the mix we will also be giving out a free round of drinks to one lucky team.

Finally something to look forward to on Mondays.
