We can’t prove it, but we’re pretty sure beer makes you smarter. Why else would a bar add a staple trivia contest to its weekly line-up? And while the metro area is home to plenty, Phoenix’s SunUp Brewery plays host to a Monday night showdown that helps you get over the start-of-the-workweek blues.
Hosted by Pub Trivia Nerds, a Berkeley-based company, the quiz tends to draw upward of 30 to 50 people and features questions like, “How many presidents have died while in office?” (answer: eight) and “What football team's fans set the Guinness World Record for being the loudest stadium?” (answer: Seattle Seahawks). Prizes include brewery gift certificates for the top contenders, while the kitchen features an all-day special of a pint and a chili dog for $5.
Show off your smarts at 7 p.m. Monday, June 2, at SunUp Brewing Co., 322 East Camelback Road. Admission is free. Visit www.sunupbrewing.com or call 602-279-8909.
Mon., June 2, 7-9 p.m., 2014
