(VIDEO) Episode 45 – “Red Cards Against Humanity”

(2018)  Our attempt to play an actual card game at the bar is thwarted.  Then again, what would you expect from the gang at Northwest Bar Night??!!

On this episode, as we drink two takes on delicious, Northwest-made Pale Ale, we comapre our beer to famous card games.  Of course, some prefer strip poker, others enjoy Cards Against Humanity, and then there’s the panelist with a unique take on “Crazy 8s.” You’re in for some fun, some laughs, and some true confessions of a bad girl…so get ready for a great night!

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:  Pale 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.
