The advertising of Rainier Beer spawned many cult classic commercials in the Northwest. Our guests got into the idea of documenting the ads after collecting Rainier Beer swag for their bar and asking the question where can we get the original film of the commercials?
The Petersons describe the origin of the Rainier Room at the bar, after they filled it with all of the memorabilia they could find relating to Rainier Beer. The room has a TV running all of the ads on a loop, and quickly became a fan favorite.
The team described the long adventure to locating the original film of the commercials. From cold calling people who might have been involved, to tracking down agencies, to the final fortuitous encounter with the Washington State Historical Society.
Recorded on location and includes several audio clips from Rainier ads.
