Portland Trivia Night

Portland Trivia Night Guide. Woohoo, it’s pub quiz night! Portland features two qualities that make it perfect for trivia night: 1) we have long, dark, wet winters, and 2) Portland is one of the best microbrew capitals of the world. What could be more fun than spending a rainy night at your favorite local Portland bar trivia night while tossing back a cold one and laughing with your friends? Of course it’s true that alcohol and sharp brain power don’t mix, so non-drinkers are welcome, too. In fact, they may be the only people on your team who actually do well answering the questions!

Get a group of friends together, come up with a funny name for your team, and see how well you do answering the trivia questions. It’s actually quite difficult to come up with answers for everything because the questions are totally random and range in topics all over the map. So, if you don’t know much about American history, sports, or politics, that’s ok…because perhaps you’ll find you do have a deep knowledge about 1980s hair bands, and that might be one of the topics of the night. Honestly, I am really horrible at trivia games, but I still have a great time. The Pub Quiz nights all seem to have a little different style and flair, depending on who is hosting them. Some are easier, some are more difficult, but all are share one thing in common: they are great Portland fun!

Please tell us if it isn’t true, but here are some of the Portland trivia companies and locations that are no longer with us.


About Roy’s Quizzy: “Since I started Quizzy in November of 2004, I’ve witnessed two other bar trivia events, and been told by Quizzy players of many more. The primary (but by no means only) complaint about some of these other pub quizzes is what I have come to call the Kylie Minogue Factor. Apparently, there is this deformed Australian named Kylie Minogue who recorded some awful, awful music some time back in the current century. One time, my team lost a Quizzo in Philly because of something to do with her. Thus, when I moved back here to Portland, I pledged not to reward anyone for knowing about the total soul-vacuum that passes for modern American mass culture. Thus, you will never have to know anything about American Idol, or CSI, or Coldplay, or Twilight (I’ll update these examples as newer, still-dumber ones replace them).” I can personally attest to the fact that Roy’s Quizzy questions are NOT for the mindless, vapid, or feint of heart (I do like CSI, though). But, that makes it more fun.
