2017 r&R Pils Reuben’s Brews & Rainier Brewing Company 1st Ever Collaboration Beer

In 2017 Old school met new school, capital R met little r in the first ever collaboration beer in Rainier’s long history. Inspired by traditional German-style pilsners, we added a northwest twist. The solid pilsner base provided the foundation for a soft, fruity, honeydew melon hop profile. Rainier’s long tradition of lager expertise paired with Reuben’s hop forward experience made this a hoppy pilsner that was refreshing as some good ol’ r&R.



After the birth of their first child Reuben, Adam and Grace embarked on a mission to brew bloody good beer. Originally from the UK, Adam turned a passionate hobby into a family-run brewery crafting nationally and internationally recognized beers in a wide variety of styles.

Since opening in 2012, Reuben’s has won awards for its beers around the world including at the Great American Beer Festival, the World Beer Cup, the US Open and was named Mid-Sized Brewery of the Year at the 2015 Washington Beer Awards.
