Well-known for our breweries and taprooms, we’re also just a bit famous as the hometown of the Olympia Brewing Company.
Enjoy a regional beer at many of our downtown Olympia restaurants or take your love of handcrafted beverages on a trip through the many locations along the Thurston County Bountiful Byway.
There's a reason so many brewers call Olympia home. From the bountiful fertile land, perfect for growing hops, to the artesian water supply, Olympia became a hub for brewers to experiment, creating flavorful beers for all to imbibe.
Imagine a pour that shines brilliantly clear, with the smell of aromatic grains and a slightly sweet yet tangy taste, capped off by a foamy bone white head. That’s what you’ll find in brewpubs, taprooms and the finest Washington breweries across the city. Handcrafted beers are plentiful so your perfect Olympia beer is out here waiting for you.
The crew at Three Magnets Brewing Co. in downtown Olympia clearly love making craft beer, and so it makes sense that they also enjoy drinking beer – potentially a lot of beer when it comes to testing and refining the variety of beer styles they offer.
Just outside the bustling downtown of the capital city of Olympia lie lush and fertile farmlands where growers and craftsmen produce some of the region’s amazing agricultural products. Out here, we’re proud of keeping things local.
Olympia Beer is well known by locals and visitors alike, and for good reason. The history of brewing in Thurston County runs deep and so does the admiration for the legendary beer and undeniable design that was way beyond the time.
