Northwest Bar Night – “Making Our Spidey Senses Tingle” (ep34)

(2018)  Is there a hero in the house?  We mark the opening of Black Panther by borrowing a page from the Marvel universe…all while drinking delicious, Northwest-made India Pale Ale (IPA).  Your “Spidey Senses” will start tingling as well as we compare our two beers to action heroes, and enjoy a couple of good laughs in the process.  Especially when one of our friends at the bar starts spinning his own web!

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  #Beer  #IPA  #TheAmazingSpider-Man


This Episode’s Category:  India Pale Ale (IPA)

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.
