Trivia Night

Every 2nd & 4th Thursday

Hosted by Rich Berkery, enjoy Trivia at Discretion Brewing every 2nd & 4th Thursday of the month, Beginning July 14th!

6-8pm

About Rich the Trivia Guy:

“My 4th grade teacher inquired why I answered “John Adams” when the question was, “Who was the first U.S. President?” Despite my knowing the answer as George Washington, I wryly replied, “but isn’t knowing who the first Vice President more challenging?” I suspect this was the moment trivia was born for me.

I started playing and eventually hosting trivia nights at the “Grand Daddy” of all trivia locales, King’s X in Oakland, which is the longest continuously running pub trivia game in the U.S.. I have also had fun hosting fundraising tournaments, including the Juvenile Hall Auxiliary, “9/11 Project” and the American Cancer Society Relay For Life.

I only appear trivia savvy because I have all of the answers.”

Each passing season allows provisions of a burgeoning sound peppered with wry attitudes and energetic rhythms to develop “lyrical pictures,” showing the humanness in the common walks of life. It is through heartfelt performances that allow him and the characters in his songs to “break the ice” with any toe-tapping crowd. He lives in Sonoma County. You can find him performing all over California and with his band The Heartsleeves. His new release “A.M. Sessions” is out now and available at his live shows and on all platforms!

Lucas Lawson

Fri. 9/23/22

5:30-7:30pm

Local contemporary folk artist Lucas Lawson teams up with songwriter, entertainer, multi-instrumentalist Dan Frechette for an evening of unforgettable tunes.

About Lucas Lawson:

Lucas Lawson is a young contemporary folk artist who grew up on a farm just north of Santa Cruz, California. In the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, while spending time alone on the farm, Lucas developed the 5 songs that make up his debut EP, Revisited Harbor. This isolation encouraged him to complete the process of recording Revisited Harbor by himself. Once finalized on October 23rd of 2020, Revisited Harbor came to the ears of Lucas’s growing community.

Lucas’s upbringing on an organic farm exposed him to the balance and harmonies that all living things have to offer. At a young age, Lucas began attending bluegrass barn dances on the farm, where he first learned to play the guitar alongside local group, the County Line Pickers. When those sadly came to a halt in March of 2020, Lucas found himself writing songs more than ever.

Anthony Presti

Sun. 10/9/22

3:00-5:00pm

San Francisco Indie Folk Rock Singer/Songwriter blending 90’s alternative rock and contemporary folk/americana.

Anthony Presti was born in Menlo Park, California and moved to Seattle in the 90’s during a thriving grunge scene. After a brief stint in Arizona, he made his way back to California, settling in Sonoma County as a teenager where he called home for over twenty years before moving to San Francisco.

The influence of Presti’s vagabond life is evident in his musical style. He flirts with multiple genres tied together by thoughtful lyrics and catchy hooks and draws inspiration from the places he’s been in his life. Some of his current influences include Damien Rice, Ryan Adams, The Avett Brothers, Stick Figure and Tom Petty.

Presti has opened for Grammy nominated singer Gretchen Peters and national acts The Deer and Little Tybee, has gone on several west coast tours and headlined Santa Rosa’s Live at Julliard Park Festival Series. He’s released three studio albums including his latest, Different Places, recorded at San Francisco’s legendary Hyde Street Studios (Green Day, Train, Grateful Dead, Cake).
