Raineer Beer Brewery (1878–1999) was a Seattle, Washington, company that brewed Rainier Beer, a popular brand in the Pacific Northwest. Although Rainier was founded in 1884, the Seattle site had been brewing beer since 1878. The beer is no longer brewed in Seattle. Those that drink Rainier Beer are very loyal to their brand of beer. The giant 'R' atop the old brewery has become somewhat of an iconic site in Seattle.
