(VIDEO) Episode 05 – “Mommy’s Juice Box”

(2017)  Someone should cut mommy off.  Seriously, mommy is getting carried away with her Cider to the point she wants to pack it in her lunch everyday.  For the first time this season, we have hard cider at the bar, and after watching this show, you’ll likely agree mommy may have had one too many, LOL.

So, 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  #Beer  #Liquor  #HardCider  #MommysJuiceBox


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.
