(VIDEO) Episode 154 – Oh Yes It’s Ladies Night

(2019)  The ladies take over the bar for this episode, so we use a classic tune by “Kool and the Gang” to help mark the occasion. And we do it all while tasting two different takes on Northwest-made Pale Ale.

Host Brian Calvert asks the ladies to describe their beers using some key phrases from the hit song #ItsLadiesNight.  We end up with some “sophisticated mamas” and even a “play with me tonight mama” that causes a couple of red faces.   It’s a fun time you won’t want to miss!

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 Instagram and Facebook (we’re NorthwestBarNight) and on Twitter (where we’re @NWBarNight).



This Episode’s Category:  Pale 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.
