(VIDEO) Episode 46 – “You Better Work It, Gurl”

(2018)  Tonight at the bar is anything but a drag, after all, we’ve brought along our big shoes, makeup, big hair, and all the glitter you can possibly stomach.

Host Brian Calvert tells the gang about his new obsession with “RuPauls Drag Race,” and that leads to a very memorable night as we taste two different takes on delicious, Northwest-made Kolsch.  During the romp through “Galmazonian” territory, we end up in one panelist’s shoe closet, we compliment some pretty big hair, and then eventually, we crown our next bar superstar!

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:  Kolsch

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.
