(VIDEO) Episode 37 – “Pirates, Booty, & Beer”

(2018) Who can resist a little “pirate talk” when you’re enjoying delicious, Northwest-made Rum?  We certainly couldn’t!  We swab the deck of the bar with some really hearty laughs, and consider sending one of our stars to walk the plank.  This was such a fun episode, as we tried to find the differences in the two rums.

Enjoy this edition of Northwest Bar Night as we taste two products, then play a game to better describe these great beverages.  And we do it all from the confines of “The Factory Luxe” at the Old Rainier Brewery!  Don’t forget to include our hashtags when you tweet about@NWBarNight:  #DrinkLocal  #Liquor  #Rum  #HandsOffMeBooty


This Episode’s Category:  Rum

Remember, this is a blind tasting.  We only identify the drinks as “Green” and “Blue.”  Once the panel tastes the drinks and picks a favorite, we reveal what they’re drinking.
