It is a way for bars to boost their traffic on weeknights and a means for friends to come together over a pint of beer, a light mental challenge, and some guaranteed laughs. Several local Fort Wayne, Indiana bars have adopted regular trivia nights or sporadic trivia events.
Whether you’re a fun-fact fiend or a passive consumer of media and culture, grab a partner or some friends, get to one of these Fort Wayne trivia hot spots and show us your smarts!

Geeks Who Drink

Test your knowledge of pop culture, current events and other random topics! “Name that tune” style soundbites, bonus points and a chance for free beer are all on the agenda for a Geeks Who Drink trivia night.

Team Trivia by Tincture of Trivia
Team Trivia takes a different approach from traditional pub trivia as players use their smartphones to answer questions read by a live host. The stakes go up as contestants wager on the confidence of their answers and gamble points on their final answer- like in Jeopardy!
Tincture hosts appear at different locations in the city throughout the week. You can catch them at places like 07 Pub, Mad Anthony Brewing, and Granite City Food & Brewery. To see their full schedule click here.
