Rainier Brewing Seattle 1884-1999
Rainier Brewing Company (1884–1999) was a Seattle, Washington, company that brewed Rainier Beer, a popular brand in the Pacific Northwest of the United States.
Although Rainier was founded in 1884, the Seattle site had been brewing beer since 1878.
While the beer enjoys near iconic status, it is no longer brewed in Seattle, nor is the company owned locally.
In the late 1990s, the company was sold to Stroh's, then to Pabst Brewing Company.
The physical brewery plant was closed by Pabst in 1999 and sold. Brand now owned by Pabst. See Pabst 'Other Brands' in the Wisconsin Guide
