What is Washington’s classic beer? Rainier of course! The beer started being brewed before Washington was even a state in 1878 according to the brand. While things have changed significantly since then, the classic beer is still around and this summer marks the 10th anniversary of the first R-Day. Here’s what’s happening at this year’s event.
R-Day 2023 takes place this weekend on Saturday, September 16th, and is sure to be extra exuberant and eclectic. It’s a celebration of all things “wonderful and weird” and a great way to enjoy music and of course some frosty Mountain Fresh Rainier beer.
There will be a full “cast of beloved Rainier characters to attend R-Day, led by a herd of Wild Rainiers, which will unveil a slew of Rainier oddities and attractions.” Get ready to get your best brand-themed outfit together.
