Trivia is every Tuesday night at Sahm's Place! Create a team and come play - or just come out earlier to try some Green Flash beer!  
Trivia starts at 8:30 pm and ends about 10 pm. Teams are typically 4 people, but less than 4 is fine. There are 5 rounds each night. It is $10 per team to play, with half going to the season cash pot and the other half going to charity. 
The season is 10 weeks long, and Sahm's pays out the top 10 teams with the cash collected over the season. Teams do not have to play each week, it just rewards teams for playing on a consistent basis. Prizes are awarded weekly.
All Green Flash Brewing Co. beers on tap will be $4!
Be smart. Drink good beer and play trivia with us!
