    … in the summer of 1972 on a road trip up from Berkeley to Seattle, I stopped by the off road section along side the Olympia brewery … as I was kinda chanting the ad line " It's the water and a lot more", I looked down from the bridge like road structure I was standing near into what I can only describe as a stagnant soapy foam like greenish creek and thought yeah it's the water and a lot more … never drank an Oly after that ...

    The water you saw swirling around was @ the bottom of the falls by the brewery which is the downfall of the Deschutes River which runs off of Mt. Rainier to Puget Sound ,the actual water used for Olympia beer was from underground artesian wells , there is still one well that runs freely in the downtown area,the brewery after being acquired by Miller brewing company closed in 2003
