Attendees will also want to visit the Rainier history booth where 50+ rare artifacts, photos and prints, celebrating Rainier’s Pre-prohibition rise in Georgetown, will be on display for the first time. “Rainier’s Seattle Brewing and Malting Company was the 6th largest brewery in the world before prohibition crashed the party more than 100 years ago.” said Rainier spokesman Kurt Stream, in a statement. “Taking in some of that history, with a Rainier in hand, standing only feet from the original brewery will be a pretty unique experience.”
