Edinburgh Fringe Review – The Thinking Drinkers Pub Quiz

Fancy five drinks alongside an entertaining and surprisingly educational pub quiz, with some slapstick, entendre and plenty of belly laughs? if the answer is yes then The Thinking Drinkers Pub Quiz is for you.

“Drink Less, Drink Better” is the mantra of Tom Sandham and Ben McFarland as they guided us through a tasting of Brockmans gin, Krombacher lager, Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva rum, Johnnie Walker whisky, Elijah Craig bourbon and a luxury mixer from The London Essence Co. A tasting through the medium of a pub quiz with each round linking to one of the drinks.

This is possibly the best pub quiz night in the world.

This was a lot of fun and we were quite tipsy by the end. Recommended for fans of pub quizzes, TV quiz shows, and for anyone who likes to try new alcoholic libations.

The Thinking Drinkers Pub Quiz is at Underbelly, Bristo Square until 28th August.
