If you didn't make it out this week to World of Beer - Forth Worth you missed a lot, we had 13 teams and over 40 players! In addition this week was a pint night with Shiner bringing out their Shine Blonde light beer! If you purchased either their bock or the blonde you got to take home a nice 16 oz pint glass! They also gave away free samples of their new IPA that's coming out this Friday, and they had tons of free koozies and stickers for any paticipants!

One of the winners from Game 1, No Names!, couldn't stick around for Game 2 so that gave some of the other teams the chance to win. Budgie Butt Stuff took the opportunity to step up and ultimately win Game 2 with a two point lead over Flaming Yawn. The Kitchen Time Bonus round, which asked what the top 10 sports movies of all time were according to the American Film Institute, really made this a close game! There was one question that NOBODY got right, though, and it was a good one:
Hachinoko, the snack served in bars throughout Japan, is actually made of what?
To me that sounds more like the name of an anime than a snack, but I honestly had no idea what it could be. it was not shrimp, tofu, or seaweed. It was actually:
