I've placed a lot of images in Commons:Category:Rainier Brewing Company and its subcategories. I strongly recommend that someone pick a few for the article.
Oddly, we don't seem to have any images (except from a great distance) of the iconic brewery at 3100 Airport Way (though I took a whole bunch of the older Georgetown brewery). But I did find some great pictures of the bottling process from a brochure printed in 1900. Unfortunately, I don't know what facility these were from: the main Georgetown brewery was not built until 1903. - Jmabel | Talk 06:41, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
- I've now take a bunch of images of the iconic brewery, I'll upload them some time in the next few weeks. - Jmabel | Talk 19:34, 17 November 2007 (UTC)
A lot could be cleared up on the history. I don't have a bunch of citable materials at hand, and the topic doesn't really excite me, so I'm hoping someone else will take it on, but there is a lot that could be done to sort out the several different breweries in the company's history (which I think is quite confusing as the article now stands).
"The Seattle site"
"…the Seattle site had been brewing beer since 1878": what site is referred to? Bayview Brewery? Rainier had multiple breweries in the Seattle area in the late 19th century. - Jmabel | Talk 07:18, 1 December 2007 (UTC)
New file File:Malt Rainier ad.jpg
Recently the file File:Malt Rainier ad.jpg (right) was uploaded and it appears to be relevant to this article and not currently used by it. If you're interested and think it would be a useful addition, please feel free to include it. Dcoetzee 09:34, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
Bunch of Tossers
Found this: "Rainier Beer is now brewed under contract by a bunch of tossers in Irwindale, California." Pretty silly but obviously removed it. However, I was wondering, the reason I came to this article was I wanted to find who exactly those 'bunch of tossers' are. Anyone know? I think this would be very useful information for this article.

Accidentally reverted a few edits on this page, all of them done my SmartAn01. Won't happen again and if I can undo my reverts I will.
"Lighted only on one side" citation needed added
I clearly remember the Rainier Beer logo on top of the brewery being lighted from both sides while I was growing up. I would drive by the brewery at least twice a week (often at night) and I always remember seeing the Rainier R sign atop the brewery as being lit from both sides.
From what I can remember, once side was lit with carnival lights, and the other side was lit with neon.
