(VIDEO) Episode 31 – “Innocence Lost at the Bar”

(2018) One of the newer members of our troupe thought she knew what a certain phrase meant, but she obviously didn’t, and the misunderstanding provided one of the funniest moments in Northwest Bar Night history!  So join us as we drink Northwest-made Dark/Black Ale and discuss the activities each beer inspires.  But there’s one activity suggested that will have you laughing out loud.  Some innocence was definintely lost during this episode, haha.

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  #BlackAle  #NetflixAndChill


This Episode’s Category:  Dark/Black 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.
