(VIDEO) Episode 16 – “Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weenie Beer”

(2017)  So, what do to at the bar tonight?  We know…let’s taste some delicious, Northwest-made Pale Ale, and compare our beers to swimwear!  We’ve definitely gone off the deep end as our stars at the bar discuss swimwear, as well as wearing nothing at all…which could very well happen if you keep this up.

Enjoy this edition of Northwest Bar Night as we taste two products, offer our first impressions, 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, a piece of local brewing history!  Don’t forget to include our hashtags when you tweet about @NWBarNight:  #BarNight  #DrinkLocal  #Beer  #PaleAle  #GoCommando  #BikinisMakeMeBitter



This Episode’s Category:  Pale 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.
