One of Tacoma’s breweries gone by.

Did you work for one of the major breweries in the Puget Sound? Columbia/Heidelberg in Tacoma? Olympia in Tumwater? Rainier in Seattle?

Do you know someone who worked for one of those breweries?

I’d like to talk with you or them.

I’m researching a story/oral history/multimedia shebang about ghost breweries of the Puget Sound before one of them gets torn down to make way for Holiday Inn.

If you’ve got stories to share (or just know someone with stories to share) about working for Columbia/Heidelberg, Olympia or Rainier, please contact me by e-mail ( or by telephone (253-597-8678).
