(VIDEO) Episode 49 – Dagnabbit Rabbit!

(2018)  Great horny toads, you long-eared varmint!  When I say whoa, I mean WHOA!

Remind you of anyone?

Let’s just say this week’s adventure on Northwest Bar Night begins with a couple of different takes on delicious, Northwest-made Bourbon, and ends with a Saturday morning cartoon favorite.   You’ll have some good laughs as we don our mustaches and have a rootin-tootin good time.  Besides, when do we ever get to use the hashtag #MyBiscuitsAreBurnin’?  It’s a lot of fun with Yosemite Sam and some great drinks too!

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:  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.
