(VIDEO) Episode 42 – “What Just Hit The Fan?”

(2018)  Yes, it has happened.  Our night at the bar has produced…wait for it…a potty mouth!  It happened innocently enough as we were tasting a different take on delicious, Northwest-made Bourbon.  Oh yeah, we were also playing Match Game, so our stars maybe had too much whiskey, as well as too many BLANKS to fill in!

Enjoy this episode 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  #Bourbon  #OhS%!#



This Episode’s Category:  Bourbon

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.
