Do you like drinking heavily and becoming so competitive that you make your friends (and strangers) uncomfortable? Do you have a lot of specific and arcane knowledge floating around your head? Does the idea of winning light beer branded swag excite you? Then you have no choice but to get yourself over to the closest bar for some trivia (or a pub quiz if you’re in an Irish joint)!

Any of the below should suit you just fine, but remember, we live in a city full of nerds. The competition is sure to be fierce, but the prizes just might make everything worth it.
