I might give it a try next summer, but really its such a cheap beer to buy at any grocer/mini mart in the Northwest. You might as well just go buy a 6 pack of tall boys, sit on your front porch and enjoy. :drink

I wouldn't even bother trying to clone it, but if that's what you're into, it should be a pretty easy one. You guys have it in tall boys? I've seen it in pint-cans a couple times but never tall boys. Lucky bastards.

Even in Portland, when I bring all the beer for the softball team I sponsor at my customer, I always have to bring an 18 pack of Rainier. For the "easy drinking" group. Of course, the remainder of the two coolers are IPA's :)

I've always considered the pint cans tall boys and the 20/22oz cans "man cans." Feel free to correct: I haven't slept in a while (this Tuesday has been well over 40hrs so far, and has at least 4 more before wednesday).

What I really need is a recipe for the original Rainier beer, circa the 70's before they sold out and changed the recipe..Todays version is no where near the original..even a good solid starting point would be helpful
