(VIDEO) Episode 47 – “This Drink is the BLANK!”

(2018)  On this Northwest Bar Night, we raise our glasses and taste two different versions of delicious, Northwest-made Gin.  And we do this tasting while laughing our BLANKS off!

It’s time for another round of booze, and another round of the classic “Match Game” as we enjoy the evening.  The challenge this week?  To finish the phrase “Wet BLANK” and use that phrase to describe both gins.  We met “Ginny,” got caught up in botanicals of an odd nature, and then, there’s the wet t-shirts.  Hold on for this wild ride!

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:  Gin

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.
