    Default Rainier beer?

    I got some in billings last year, liked it. Where can I get it in WY, anywhere? Nowhere?

    Sorry I can't answer your question but just had to comment on Rainier beer.

    They had the coolest ads on TV years ago.

    Yep, the TV show Longmire has made it trendy, and I admit thats why I tried it. And its damn tasty!

    Rainer beer was originally brewed in Seattle, WA. I see now they must be owned by Pabst Brewing Company out of Milwaukee.

    Rainer, Olympia and Coors all made a splash in SD in the late '60s early '70s. Rainer and Olympia quickly faded, but Coors did not. My Dad was a Schlitz, Storz, and Schmidt distributor in Mitchell. We actually had over 50% of the market in our area before these beers and Miller Lite showed up. Schlitz screwed the pooch and started sending different tasting beer up fro Atlanta or somehwere down south, and wanted us to push Old Mill. Old Mill lasted but Schlitz went down the tube. All of the regional beers took a hit to include Hamm's, Grainbelt, Pabst and others. Things consolidated and now Bud and Millers are owned by Belgium and South Africa respectively. That's why I buy craft beers most of the time.

    Thanks guys, I have been working thru the Longmire book series, great stuff. And I can recognize (or so I think) the places he writes about even with the names changed which makes it even more fun. Might have to swing north thru "Durant" on my way home to stock up on beer.....
