Rainier Beer

Clap your mitts on a piece of Seattle history. Bricks from the recent demo of Seattle’s cold-storage portion of the old Rainier Brewery are up for grabs in the parking lot across from Smartypants, 6017 Airport Way South.

Rainier Beer got its start in Seattle in the mid-1880s, before Washington earned its statehood. This is an institution, friends. I had my first taste of the iconic ale in about 1987, when my dad and his bros were taking a break from haying at my grandfather’s Winlock, Wash., farm. Yeah, it was disgusting. But I was like seven, okay?

In any case, these bricks should not go unclaimed. Fireplace, ahoy!
