Pub Quiz!

Enroute Karumba, Australia

What chronicle of our many adventures tending bars in the remote outreaches of the Outback would be complete without a pub quiz?

first quiz question

Here in Australia many of the beers do you the courtesy of printing questions right on the bottle caps so their customers can all stay in constant training for that next pub quiz night.  Consequently, one works at an Australian pub long enough – pretty much about a week really – and one ends up with a working database of Quiz questions.

Questions that make you feel really, really ignorant – or, in Greg’s case, sometimes grateful for being a bit of nerd:


This is the second time Greg’s knowledge of nerd culture has paid dividends on a quiz night.

While we could write about pub quizzes and the questions we thought it would be a lot more fun just to let you experience it for yourself!  So we kept a little database of our favorite questions and though we would hold our own little pub quiz with all of you.

And let’s make this a little interesting shall we?  Send your answers to gregandtiffany (at) coastguardcouple.com.  Person who gets the most right (total of 20 and as judged by the answers on the bottle caps) by midnight on Sunday 26 May gets a copy of Greg’s Sci-fi channel movie Sharktopus.  If more than one person gets them all right then the winner will be the person who submitted all the correct answers first.

(and though we can’t stop you, we’d like to point out for an “authentic” pub quiz experience assistance from the googles would be frowned upon – though assistance from other people is cool.)

So grab a some grog and toss on your thinking caps:

It’s pub quiz time!

After that, if you’re still feeling cocky let us know as these are just our favorite from the 50 or so we kept.  Because when it comes to pub quizzes, this ain’t our first rodeo…or quiz.  At least this time the bar cat didn’t steal Greg’s drink.

About the authors

Greg and Tiffany are traveling around the world on sailing yachts and keep a video blog of their (mis)adventures.  If sailing to Tahiti on a 44 ft sailboat, 3-day delays for wine tastings, getting pooped on by seagulls, opening coconuts with dull machetes, sailing past tornadoes and ukulele Christmas carols are for you, then check them out at www.CoastGuardCouple.com!
