(VIDEO) Episode 32 – “Halftime, Justin & Cider For Everyone”

(2018) We’re bringing sexy back this week with some Northwest-made Hard Cider and the guy that’s entertaining during the Super Bowl this year.  Football and drinking have never been more fun!  We celebrate this year’s big game, by naming our ciders after one of Justin Timberlake’s hit songs.  Which one will be “bringing sexy back?”  You’re going to have to watch to find out!

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   #HardCider  #ImBringingSexy Back   #Suit&Tie


This Episode’s Category:  Cider

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.
