Cheeseheads! 'Sconnies! Packer Nation! This quiz was made for you!

On August 2nd at 7PM, the Milwaukee Ale House hosts an all-Wisconsin themed quiz night, in partnership with Milwaukee Irish Fest for its 35-year anniversary.
The quiz event will test our finest queeps on their knowledge of all-things Wisconsin, including the state's history, sports teams (think Packers, Brewers, Bucks, Badgers and more), food and drink (duh!), entertainment (hey, Houdini's grew up in Appleton?!) and much, much more!!

The event will be just $1/person to play, and there will be tons of prizes provided by Irish Fest, including FREE TICKETS to their 35th showing at the Summerfest Grounds from August 13th-16th, 2015. The Ale House will also serve up $8 craft beer pitchers and $3 select MKE Brewing Co. cans during the game! Sounds like a match made in Wisco baby!

Currently this quiz is only being hosted at the Milwaukee Ale House but we will announce here or on our Facebook page if additional venues are added. 


Specially-themed quiz FAQs

Do we pre-register, sign up online? 
No. We do these events like it's 1999. Just show up --- we advise you arrive a little early to grab a good seat --- drink, think and have fun. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis, no reservations.

Okay, how much is it? 
In this case just $1/player.

What are the prizes?
This will vary with each event but typically most are offering standard moolah for first place, second place and the best themed team name, mostly likely free beer or bar tabs to the venue.

Can I wear a special outfit or costume?
Absolutely. Particularly if you want to feature on the blog. Hey, in some cases we even have costume contests and give out extra stash for those dressed up folks!

Can people under 21 play?
That's out of our hands we're afraid, and will vary depending on the venue. We'll be sure to communicate that via our Facebook page for each specific event, but if you're unsure just call the venue 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.
