(VIDEO) Episode 150 – Ladies, Gentlemen, & Ladyboys

(2018)  It was boys against the girls this week, and the winner of this epic #BattleOfTheSexes:  The Ladyboy.

Got your attention?  We have another fun night at the bar as we drink two local takes on delicious, Northwest-made Tripel Ale.  Once we start drinking, we begin to classify our beer as something we might serve to the good girls in our life, or the bad boys.  But the train really leaves the tracks when our lack of political correctness collides with one of the panelists, who wasn’t quite sure what a #Ladyboy is.  Curious?  You’ll have to watch.

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:  Tripel Ale

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.
