2. Rainier was the last major American brewery to use stubbies
Which you’ve obviously never heard of, ‘cause no one uses the short, 11oz bottles anymore.
3. There’s some debate about how it’s pronounced
Walt Longmire apparently isn’t the only one who -- whether in jest or out of affection -- calls it “Ran-YEAH”, even though anyone who watched TV in the ‘80s knows that it’s “Raaaaiiii… Niiiieeeerrrr… Beeeeeerrrr...”.
4. Like Georgetown? Thank Rainier.
The “company town” incorporated in 1904 to safeguard the interests of the brewery. Oh, and they also elected the superintendent as mayor and fire chief, and doubled the number of taverns/bars in a year.
