Northwest Bar Night – “Don’t Touch My Pianist!” (ep23)

How much trouble could you possibly get into with Cider at the bar?  The short answer: Plenty.  We’re tickling the ivories tonight as we compare our ciders to things you do to a piano.  You’re guaranteed to walk away from this episode with two things:  Two new ciders to try, and at least one thing you didn’t know you could do to a baby grand.

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:  #DrinkLocal  #Cider  #SeductionOfThePianist


This Episode’s Category:  “Berry” Cider

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.
