The latest exhibit at the Washington State History Museum, Steins, Vines & Grinds, explores the history of three libations that continue to be wildly popular in the Evergreen State. Discover how the passion of beverage industry leaders connected with the unique climate and geography of our state to place Washington at the forefront of the industry.
Visitors to Steins, Vines & Grinds will be immersed in the origins of these three beverages in Washington and see a giant-size inflatable Rainier Beer bottle and a bottle of Rainier - unopened - discovered in a sunken ship; a grape press used by Croatian wine makers in Gig Harbor; coffee and beer mugs and wine bottles and glasses ranging back in time; and a mélange of beverage memorabilia and marketing materials that includes posters, neon signs, beer trays, and even a bobblehead brewmaster.
