(VIDEO) Episode 53 – “Smack That Stout”

(2019)  If we asked you to think of the title of the “sexiest” song you know, what comes to mind?

What if we asked you that question after a couple of beers, namely two different takes on Northwest-made Stout?

Thus is the set-up for this week’s episode of Northwest Bar Night, where host Brian Calvert asks the stars at the bar about sexy songs.  There’s a short list to choose from, including #SmackThat and #LetsGetItOn.  And then, there are the “other” songs some of the panelists come up with that leave us stunned, surprised, but still laughing.

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:  Stout

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.
