(VIDEO) Episode 41 – “Gentlemen Prefer Gingers”

(2018)  First, we taste two different delicious takes on Northwest-made Amber/Red Ale.  Then, we issue an alert.  THEN, we call on our favorite gingers for help!  As you might imagine, there are plenty of laughs at the bar tonight, a few pokes, and a jab or two.  And in the end, the beer ain’t so bad either!

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  #AmberAle   #RedAle  #AmberAlert



This Episode’s Category:  Amber/Red 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.
