(VIDEO) Episode 156 – Advance To Boardwalk with that Beer

(2019)  Board games at the bar?  Why not, and it seems to fit perfectly as we taste two different takes on Northwest-made Kolsch.

Thus is the set-up for this week’s episode of Northwest Bar Night, where host Brian Calvert gets out the #Monopoly board for a while new way of looking at #CommunityChest.  But be warned, some of our stars go directly to jail (or at least they should go to jail) for some of their one-liners in this delightful romp around the board to Boardwalk. 

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



This Episode’s Category:  Kolsch

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.
