Northwest Bar Night – “Doggy Style At The Bar” (ep29)

We’re drinkin’ some Gin & Juice (actually it’s a Gin Rickey) on this week’s show, and Snoop Dogg is in the house.  Okay, he’s not really in the house, but he certainly does have a presence in our conversation at the bar.  As we enjoy two different Northwest-made Gins, we compare them to some of Snoop’s most famous songs of all time.  There’s plenty of #Shiznit to go around!

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 include our hashtags when you tweet about@NWBarNight:  #DrinkLocal  #Liquor #Gin  #DramaInTheLBC  #Shiznit


This Episode’s Category:  Gin

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.
