Product description

Rainier beer brings together nature’s bounty from the great Northwest. Pure spring waters combine with golden barley and verdant hops to produce a beer rich in taste and texture. Fermented slowly with a pedigree yeast culture under tightly controlled conditions, Rainier comes forth with a satisfying malty flavor over a slightly fruity background, spiced with Chinook, Mt. Hood, and Willamette hop notes.

    You might not know this but I learned once the Indians called Rainier beer “Rainy ones” I am from Washington State so it was a little bit of nostalgia having Rainier again. They had the coolest commercial years ago imitating the sound of a motorcycle Did you ever see or hear it? Just checking to see if you really read these things

    Very convenient

    I do love me some Vitamin R, but it's not local. It's brewed in Irwindale, CA by people that may have never seen Mt. Rainier. Read the can if you don't believe me.

    We started buying this because it’s relatively light and refreshing in the summer, but it’s actually more versatile than that. Unpretentious and reliable. Good stuff.

American lagers tend to offer a much lighter body than other styles, very little (or no) bitterness, and lower ABV. Sometimes called "mass market" lagers, production focuses less on complex flavors, and more on reproducing pale, crushable consistency in every can or bottle.
When it comes to flavor, think...neutral, and not in a bad way. There's not too much of any flavor, with a balance of grain and corn flavors, with a low to medium-low hop bitterness. Craft beer drinkers will probably find the hop flavors to be subdued.
The alcohol by volume (ABV) of American lagers is usually in the 4% - 5% range.

Drizly's take

Rainier® beer is an American-style lager with a rich taste and consistency, which derives from golden barley. The fermentation process happens slowly, under rigorously controlled conditions, with premium yeasts. The brewer uses Chinook, Willamette and Mt. Hood hops to create pleasant flavor notes. A fruity background enhances the malty flavor of this American-style lager beer. The Rainier has a beginner-friendly ABV of 4.6%. Serve yours with oily fish, fried foods, cured meats, grilled meats, nuts, mild Cheddar, Gouda and fresh mozzarella. Use a pint glass or pilsner glass to keep the luscious foam intact and enjoy the aroma at its best.

About the brand

Rainier was born in Seattle in 1878 before the state of Washington was even a state. In 1954, the iconic “R" was raised on top of the company's brewery in Seattle, cementing it as a Seattle staple, but it was the light-hearted and fun commercials of the 1970's and 80's that elevated the brand into a Pacific Northwest icon. Whether you are a life-long resident of the Northwest, or new to the region, Rainier is a symbol of the adventurous, outdoor-loving, and joyful spirit that lives on stronger than ever today
