 We are happy to announce that the old iconic Rainier “R” will be restored in its rightful place, where it shone for nearly 50 years atop the Old Rainier Brewery.  The Tully’s “T” replaced the “R” in 2000.  The original “R” currently lives at the Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI) on South Lake Union.  The new “R” replica has been produced by our friends and SODO neighbors at Western Neon.

There will be a series of events in different neighborhoods around Seattle to celebrate the return of “R”.  There will even be opportunities to capture a photo with the “R”. Find more details by following this link http://www.restorether.com/

Enjoy a gander at Western Neon’s take down of the Tully’s “T”.
