Northwest Bar Night – “From Porter To The Porterhouse” (Ep 04)

We’re not exactly sure what happened at the bar this week, but somehow one of the stars ended up drinking her meat.  You probably would like a little context, so we suggest watching the show (and promise it’s well worth your while).  We have a couple of delicious bottles of Porter on the show, each of them fairly unique.

So, enjoy this edition of Northwest Bar Night as we taste two products, offer our first impressions, 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, a piece of local brewing history!  Don’t forget to include our hashtags when you tweet about @NWBarNight:  #BarNight  #Beer  #Liquor  #Porter  #DrinkMyMeat

This Episode’s Category:  Porter


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.
