We in the Northwest are serious about our beers. So many of us were VERY upset when Rainer Beer was taken from us 13 years ago and was being brewed in California. Well good news for NW beer lovers: Rainier is back!

It was announced that Rainier is back in Washington brewing in Woodinville at the Redhook Brewery. Not only is the beer back, but they're brewing a new batch in the style of their post-Prohibition pale ales of the 1930s. Called Pale Mountain Ale and brewed with hops from the Yakima Valley, this new brew is in production and will be ready in stores and bars just before the 4th of July! Will you buy the new Rainier?
