Tom Sandham and Ben McFarland (aka The Thinking Drinkers), the world’s most entertaining alcohol connoisseurs, are coming to Leicester’s Curve!
Combining comedy with a high-octane quiz and an enlightening, educational drinks tasting, the Thinking Drinkers Pub Quiz: Fancy Another Round blows the froth off traditional tastings and is the only quiz where you get given all the answers!
As the audience compete head-to-head, with a quiz sheet and pencil in one hand and a selection of damn fine drinks in the other, Ben McFarland and Tom Sandham lead them gently on an illuminating, intoxicating and hilarious exploration of alcohol’s influence on every aspect of humanity and prove that a lot of the answers to life’s most important questions can, in fact, be discovered at the bottom of the glass.
Ben and Tom first collaborated in 2006 when they wrote Good Beer Guide West Coast USA – an award-winning travel guide and craft beer lover’s compendium of the world’s most cutting-edge brewing scene.
Other books followed including World’s Best Beers, World’s Best Cocktails, Boutique Beer and Thinking Drinkers: The Enlightened Imbiber’s Guide to Alcohol. Their latest book The Thinking Drinkers Almanac (Octopus Publishing) was named Drinks Book Of The Year 2021 by The Times and The Sunday Times.
In 2011 they transferred their expertise and unique take on alcohol from the editorial page to the comedy stage with their first critically acclaimed show The Thinking Drinker’s Guide to Alcohol. The show transferred to London’s iconic Soho Theatre and since then they have regularly toured the UK, which led to them being named Industry Communicators of the Year by Imbibe Magazine in 2018.
