Downtown Omaha Now Rumbling With Trivial Delights

Locally brewed beers are the best kind of beers, but the world’s best trivia is still the world’s best trivia, no matter where you are.

That’s how you know Omaha’s Thunderhead Brewing and Minneapolis’s Trivia Mafia are going to get along marvelously.

Thunderhead touts 21 taps, and there’s no shortage of creative, tasty concoctions among them. Their nine “main beers” span the spectrum of suds -- if you like pale wheat beers or Russian imperial stouts or anything in between, Thunderhead has you covered. And that doesn’t even take into account their five big batch offerings or their seven limited releases... If you like beer, you can’t not like Thunderhead.

Trivia Mafia likes to cover the same amount of ground as Thunderhead in each night of trivia. With questions about current events, history, pop culture, obscure facts, math, rhymes, history, and anything else that comes to the question writers’ minds (plus an image round and a sound round!), if you like to know things, you can’t not like Trivia Mafia.

So grab some pals, join local host Greg, and put your (Thunder)heads together over a game of Trivia Mafia.

Tart Trivia Now At Minneapolis Cider Company

If an apple a day keeps the doctor away, a cider a day has GOT to be good for you too. Enter Minneapolis Cider Company.

The mantra at Minneapolis Cider Co. is “Welcome to Cider,” and recently, they extended another “welcome” to Trivia Mafia, meaning you can now find your cider fix alongside the world’s best bar trivia... It’s almost too good to be true.

And don’t your preconceived notions of ciders lead you astray: not all ciders are created equal. Try a glass of peach or raspberry cider, or perhaps the mango habanero. If you think you’ve conquered all that cider has to offer, get your hands on a Royale cocktail, Minneapolis Cider Co.’s experimental and highly versatile spirit made from distilled, aged cider.

No matter how you take your cider, you can’t be wrong... Here’s hoping the same can be said for your trivia game. Host Naomi is ready to put you and your smartest pals to the test.

We're Bringing Craftiness To Eastlake Craft Brewery

Die-hard beer fans and die-hard trivia fans unite: Trivia Mafia is officially in full swing at Eastlake Craft Brewery.

This brewery, located in the corner of the Midtown Global Market, offers an impressively wide selection of all things tasty -- the perfect accompaniment to Trivia Mafia’s impressively wide selection of weekly trivia categories.

Their 16 beers on tap range from delightfully summer-y sours to an easy-drinking pils, plus a handful of tasty variations on an IPA and a few brews of the darker, maltier sort. All of their beers are entirely vegan, and a few have reduced gluten: leave no beer drinker behind.

For nourishment while you and your teammates tackle the world’s best trivia, you can carry in food from any of the fantastic Midtown Global Market vendors or order right at the bar from six of those restaurants for tableside delivery.
