STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — At 6 p.m. on Wednesdays, locals and visitors gather around community-style tables, grab a beer and maybe an appetizer, then get ready to show off their skills of absorbing and recalling random tidbits about Steamboat Springs, beer, music and anything else.

Mountain Trivia hosted by Mountain Tap Brewery every Wednesday was born out General Manger Jeff Goodhand’s personal love of playing trivia with his own friends. And, with their long tables perfectly suitable for teams of six, Goodhand decided it was a “no-brainer” to at least give it a go.

“The response was certainly positive, and we see repeat teams week after week,” Goodhand said.

The rules are pretty simple. Teams of up to six give themselves a unique name and grab a piece of paper to write down their answers to the unique questions.

“Trivia is hosted by JR Adams, who puts a lot of effort into writing unique questions,” Goodhand said. “A lot of which pertain to subject matter that people living in a mountain town know a lot about — the outdoors, music and beer.”

After all the rounds are completed, there’s a tie breaker if needed, and prizes are handed out to the top three teams.

Partners in Routt County also co-hosted the night in March.

“Each week, they have a volunteer bring information about the organization and how to become involved with their efforts,” Goodhand said. “It’s added an element of community support to a local-dominant event, which is at the core of our values as a business.”

If you want to show off your trivia skills, Mountain Trivia is held weekly at 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesdays at Mountain Tap Brewery, 910 Yampa St., No. 103.
