Olympia has long been Washington's "second" beer after Rainier, (at least according to friends who naturally know these things). Because of quirks in the regional distribution system, Olympia has always enjoyed a reputation out of proportion to its sales in the states adjoining Washington.
Postscript: Oly, no longer any such "second" beer has grown and recently bought out smaller Ranier. A sad day indeed. Now, horror of horrors, Ranier beer is actually brewed in Olympia's brewery in Olympia while they have closed the Ranier brewery for good. sigh
