(VIDEO) Episode 25 – “Ass-less Chaps & Ornery Bears”

(2017) Oh yes!  We brought out some delicious, Northwest-made Rye Whiskey, and were suddenly transported back to the Wild West.  Saddle-up to the bar, you city slicker, and prepare yourself, as our cowboys, cowgirls, and mama bears unleash another fun night 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  #Liquor  #RyeWhiskey  #OrneryAsAMamaBearWithASoreTeat


This Episode’s Category:  Rye Whiskey

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.
