(VIDEO) Episode 36 – “Besame Mucho Cerveza”

(2018) Can you name the many different types of kisses?  It may be easy to do if you’re not at the bar, but it gets really interesting when two delicious, Northwest-made Amber/Red Ales are involved!  During the course of our 10 minutes together, you’ll experience eskimo, butterfly, and even “50 Shades of Grey” kisses.   It’s a lot of fun, and believe it or not, the game gives you some more insight into the differences between the beers.  It also gives you WAY too much insight into those seated at the bar, LOL!

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  #Beer  #RedAle #AmberAle  #50ShadesOfKisses


This Episode’s Category:  Amber/Red Ale

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.
