MKE League Table

Sunday, June 17, 2018

The league table for our MKE League will be updated on a weekly basis. The table below shows the league standings after nine weeks of play (all scores as of June 17th, 2018)...

How does the scoring work?
- All teams are awarded 10 points for attending a quiz

- A team is awarded additional points based on how well they do at a quiz...
----- 1st place = 5 points (so 15 points total)
----- 2nd place = 4 points (so 14 points total)
----- 3rd place = 3 points (so 13 points total)
----- 4th place = 2 points (so 12 points total)
----- 5th place = 1 point (so 11 points total)

- Any position 6th place or lower does not offer any additional points, so those teams earn the 10 points just for attending the quiz

- BONUS: We will offer "bonus points" for teams attending certain venues. Watch our Facebook page for announcements on where you can earn bonus points just for showing up. Most of these bonus venues will offer 20 points just for showing. Winning a quiz at such a venue will earn a team 25 points rather than the 15 points you could earn at a regular venue.

Monday, May 28, 2018

Sunday June 24th, 2018 (all at 7pm)...
- 42 Ale House, St. Francis, WI
- Brass Monkey, West Allis, WI
- Club 400, Waukesha, WI
- The Landing at Hoyt Park, Wauwatosa, W
- Milwaukee Brat House, Milwaukee, WI
- Milwaukee Brat House, Shorewood, WI
- Red Rock Saloon, Madison, WI

ALL Sunday venues will be offering a prize for "best-worst dressed person", most likely tickets to an upcoming concert festival ;) Arrive in your most awful 90s attire to win!

Wednesday June 27th, 2018
- 8:00PM: Uptown Tavern, Minneapolis, MN

Thursday June 28th, 2018
- 6:30PM: Last Call, Minneapolis, MN

Expect the usual prizes for 1st, 2nd and "best 90s team name" and venues will be running specials too.

This quiz will be on a first-come, first-serve basis and entry fees will be paid on the night and will not exceed $5/player. VENUE CHARGING $5 PER PLAYER WILL HAVE A CASH PRIZE ON TOP OF REGULAR BAR TABS PRIZES. Some venues will offer the event for free (but will not feature a cash prize).

Specially-themed quiz FAQs

Do we pre-register or make reservations? 
While most venues operate their themed nights on a first-come, first-serve basis, some venues WILL BE TAKING RESERVATIONS. We advise that you call the location in advance (by at least a couple of weeks sometimes) to make a reservation. If a location is on a first-come, first-serve basis, we advise that you arrive extremely early to grab a good seat.

Okay, how much is it? What are the prizes?
It varies for each venue. Up to $5/player but no more. There will be a CASH prize (as well as regular gift card prizes for 1st, 2nd and best team name) at venues where it is $5 to play.

Can people under 21 play?
That's out of our hands we're afraid, and will vary depending on the venue. We advise that you call the venue directly in advance to find out.

Is there a team-size limit? 
Surprisingly no! While we typically have an 8-person limit for our regular quiz nights, we keep the specially-themed events open. Why? Well, we figured you'll need all the brain power possible.

Do spectators have to pay? 
Yup. If someone on your team is just there and "doesn't really know anything" they still have to cough up the dough.

I own/manage a venue. Can I host such an event at my bar?
It depends. In almost all cases, we only work with existing Quizmaster clients on our specially themed events, so hire us now and perhaps we can work something out. Such venues must fit certain criteria too.  Location and venue size are key, especially when we've been known to pull in over 100 people for certain events.

3 WORDS: Beer. Garden. Trivia.

Friday, May 25, 2018

Great news Wisconsin! Beer garden trivia is just around the corner at some of the metro area's best outdoor spots!

Of course, all outdoor trivia will be weather-permitting, so follow us on Facebook or Twitter to get info on any possible cancellations in the event of inclement weather.

Here's a breakdown of the MKE beer garden and patio spots that will be hosting Quizmaster Trivia this summer...

Colectivo Lakefront Cafe, Milwaukee – map

Tuesdays at 7pm, starting May 29th 

Did someone say trivia on the Lakefront?! The Colectivo Lakefront Cafe is back for it's second summer season of Quizmaster Trivia, taking place on Tuesdays at 7pm.

Plus the venue will have a "beer bar" set-up outside and will be serving up some great local, craft brews, including Lakefront Brewery and Milwaukee Brewing Co. beers.

Expect the usual prizes for 1st, 2nd and best team name too. A word of advice: if possible try to walk or cycle (or rollerblade, if that's your thing) down to the Cafe as the parking lot is small and often full. There is additional parking across the main road in the marina too.

The Landing at Hoyt Park, Wauwatosamap

Wednesdays at 7pm, starting June 6th

Operated by the Friends of Hoyt Park, a non-profit organization, The Landing is the local beer garden for residents in Wauwatosa and surrounding areas.

The Landing is open May through October, and now has indoor seating when the weather does not cooperate. They’ve added flat screen TV’s and 10’ projector screen for sports and other special events beyond the beer garden season, and have a great selection of beers such as Karmeliten Festbier, Ale Asylum Hopalicious, New Glarus Totally Naked and MKE Brewing Company Outboard Cream Ale, as well as many other local, craft and import brews. They also serve a selection of wine, ciders and a menu that includes Milwaukee Pretzel Company giant pretzels, delightful bratwursts and Cranky’s pizza.

Besides hosting Quizmaster on Wednesdays, the Landing has live music in the beer garden every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night throughout the summer.

Trivia at the Landing is brought to you by WaterStone Bank.

Red Lion Pub, downtown Milwaukeemap 

Thursdays at 8pm

The Red Lion Pub on Tannery Row, located on N. Water Street just a hair from downtown Milwaukee, opened in 2014 having been formerly known as Brocach Irish Pub. The pub's English owners, who once upon time bartended at the original Quizmaster venue, The Britinn in Shorewood, have really put a proper English twist on this pub. An amazing food menu includes a cracking fish n' chips, mouth-watering banger and mash, scotch eggs and more.

Quiz night serves up $5 giant pretzels as well as $4 select drafts which rotate from week to week. Plus if you like accents then this is the place to be. Their Welsh Quizmaster can be tough to comprehend at times (we joke, honestly), but is great with the punters. Plus, as far as views go, it's not too shabby quizzing while overlooking the Milwaukee River.

McGillycuddy's, downtown Milwaukeemap 

Tuesdays at 8pm

McGillycuddy's Bar, located in the heart of downtown on Milwaukee's bustling Water Street, has been serving up Quizmaster Trivia since 2011 and hasn't looked back since.

The bar is a staple of Milwaukee's drinking culture and boasts a phenomenal outdoor patio (located at the back of the venue) for a downtown spot that's not on the water. Trivia features great specials including $7 domestic pitchers, $4 Tall Three Olives Mixers and it wouldn't be an Irish pub without a whiskey deal: $3 shots of Jameson!

The venue is also a hotbed for MKE sports fans, particularly those wearing green and gold, but also has a loyal following for Chicago hockey fans too. It is, after all, Milwaukee's official Blackhawks bar. Plus the patio is frequently a spot for live music in the summer months.

O'Lydias, Walker's Pointmap 

Wednesdays at 8pm 

O'Lydia's located on Water Street just on the southern periphery of Milwaukee's trendy Third Ward, is one of those awesome family-run spots that everything just loves to go to. Operated by a mother-son combo, "Lyds" has become renowned for it's delicious buffalo chicken wings, which are served up at just 50 cents-a-piece on Wednesday nights. And guess what? Wednesday is also trivia night!

The venue also has tap beer specials on quiz night and offers bar tabs, bottles of booze and beer swag for it's quiz winners too. Plus, in the summer time the venue's back patio is a breeding ground for thirsty Walker's Point patrons... just so long as you don't mind the odd freight train rolling by every once in a while. That may sound like a slight headache but anyone who's frequented O'Lydias just knows it's part of the scenery and adds to the bar's unprecedented MKE charm.

42 Ale House, St. Francis – map 

Wednesdays at 7pm 

Geeks, gamers and fans of all things Fandom will love the 42 Ale House. This former British pub, located in the heart of St. Francis, serves up delicious pub grub in a fun setting that heralds geeky pop culture staples like Game of Thones, Star Wars, Harry Potter and more!

The Ale House has been hosting Quizmaster Trivia since early 2018 and offers $0.69 jumbo wings, $9 pitchers of Miller Lite and $1 off pints of Abita taps during quiz night, every Wednesday at 7pm. The patio is a lovely one but you'll be safe knowing that if the skeetas are getting at you on a muggy day you can always play inside too.
