According to their website, the aptly titled geekswhodrink.com, Geeks who drink is a Denver-based company that hosts Bar Trivia in more than 800 pubs and restaurants in 46 states.

Several of my friends are great Bar Trivia aficionados and for the nut of trivia in your life here is the accompaniment par excellence: Geeks Who Drink Presents: Duh!, edited by Christophe D. Court.
The 200+ page book distributed by Adams Media is packed with fun questions, answers and anecdotes that will make the bar even more fun. The chapters are divided using 100 questions ranging from topics such as “Jock Scraps”? ? (sports), “Eat me” ?? (food), “Statecrap” ?? (history and geography) and “Uh-oh, this is a science chapter (well, you guessed it).
As a history teacher, I liked browsing the Statecrap section. Who was the first president without a law degree? Who was the first president with a middle name? Think before you answer, but follow Occam’s razor. The book even says that they offer questions designed to try to make you think too much.
