I miss regional breweries. Thank god bud and miller et al got so fucking
big and arrogant and shitty: best thing that ever happened to the microbrew
industry. Can’t trust a beer brewed where all the other beer is brewed.

What a please to see Joel on the bus after all these years. My name is Dean
Tonkin. I wrote and produced all of the television, radio, and music/songs
for Olympia Beer from 1972 through 1976. If you’d like to hear some of the
songs featuring such artists as Ray Charles, Jose, Feliciano, Gloria Jones,
El Chicano, and Mary Cooper; please let me know. The film was shot by such
Oscar Winning cinematographers and Vilmos Czigismond (Ziggy), Conrad Hall,
and Haskell Wexler.

Oly is Olympia for short. Did you know around 1978 Olympia Beer sponsored
the Sports Challenge with Dick Enberg game show?
