(VIDEO) Episode 52 – When Rum Meets Match Game

(2019)  We bring back our favorite game show #MatchGame for this week’s show, with a question that has the audience rolling before host Brian Calvert ever finishes reading it.

First and foremost, we’re tasting liquor tonight, as in two different takes on Northwest-made Silver Rum.  Now that the drink are flowing, we have to fill in the blank with this week’s question.  The panelists have a field day with this, leading to a discussion of #ShavingHabits by the ladies at the bar.  Think you have what it takes to fill in THIS blank?

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:  Silver Rum

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.

If you want to be surprised, STOP READING HERE and go watch the show!
