We're here once again with PubGuys Trivia and World of Beer - Ft. Worth! Each week we're here from 7 to 9 with some brain scratching trivia, as well as fantastic food and an insane beer selection! It is always free to play, and each team has two chances to win a $25 or $10 gift card for 1st and 2nd place, respectively. Now is a perfect time to come out because it's a new year and you never know when they'll have a local brewery out with free beer samples and glasses to give away! Here's what happened this week!
This week we saw the return of Got Here Late, Jerk Store, and Fish Tots. They were joined by Ji, Shadow Lab, and On Second Thought, for a total of 30 players going at it this week!

This week's Visual Round theme was Classic Album Covers, so each team had to associate the correct album cover with the band.

The format of Game 2 is the same, however instead of a Visual Round there is a Kitchen Timer Bonus Round at the end of the game. This gives players a last chance at adding 10 points to their score. This week's question for the Kitchen Timer Round was: In the 2016 Summer Olympics, name the 10 top category sports that involved the principle use of a net. Just like Game 1 there was still a Themed Round as well, and this time the theme was Deutschland über alles (Germany). Once again Fish Tots and Jerk Store took 1st and 2nd, respectively, but Ji and Coob's World kept the team scores closer than Game 1. Here's a question that stumped everyone:
What breakfast food gets its name from the German word for "stirrup"?
We had a lot of great guesses for this one like oatmeal, strudel, waffles, or grits. The actual correct answer was:
With that we wrap up another week with PubGuys Trivia at World of Beer - Ft. Worth! If you come out to see us next week don't forget they also have their Taco Tuesday special going on during trivia!
