(VIDEO) Episode 44 – “Hot For Teacher” – Season Premiere

(2018 – Season Premiere)  Fall has arrived, and so have we!  We’re pleased to begin another season of everyone’s favorite night at the bar with good drinks, good fun, and plenty of laughs at your favorite high school teacher’s expense!

Tonight, as we enjoy delicious, Northwest-made Flavored Vodka, we reminisce about the favorite teacher each drink reminds us of.  The panels’ inner “Teacher’s Pet” comes alive, and before we’re done, we’ve dished on everyone from the geeky math teacher, to the sporty gym teacher, to the hot English teacher!

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 follow our social media stream on Facebook (we’re NorthwestBarNight) and on Twitter (where we’re @NWBarNight).


This Episode’s Category:  Flavored Vodka

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.
