(VIDEO) Episode 1 – “Series Premiere – Prepare For a Mouthful”

(2017)  The bar is open!  For our sixth season, we’ve given the show an update.  In addition to delicious local beer, you’ll now find liquor and cider at our place.  And we kick off Northwest Bar Night with a real mouthful, lol!  We’re drinking Pale Ale for this episode, and having a really good time.

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  #Pale Ale  #MouthfulOfFun


This Episode’s Category:  Pale Ale

Remember, this is a blind tasting.  We only identify the brews as “Beer Green” and “Beer Blue.”  Once the panel tastes the beer and picks a favorite, we reveal what they’re drinking.
