Enjoy Olympia Beer Advertising

Why Olympia Beer? Everyone remembers their first beer, I remember going to my friend Bills house and drinking his Dad's Little Olys and playing pool. I also remember the cool Olympia Beer signs that his dad had throughout the rec room.

This website is your guide to all of the great breweriana and advertising of the Olympia Brewing Company from pre pro trays to lighted plastic motion signs and one of a kind prototypes and mockups I will do my best to get them up as time allows me. This site is intended as a guide and is soley based on my opinion as a collector as to the relative scarcity of the collectibles.

Whats it worth? Simple answer what someone is willing to pay for it. More complicated answer do your homework research the item chances are you will find it or a similar item on eBay this way you can find out what others are willing to pay other great places to search are Craigslist. Other important factors are size giant outdoor signs while nice are too big for most collections and should be valued accordingly. And while this is an ongoing project I cant show everything so if you have a question send em my way.
Looking at the images above and below these are reproduction images from old time calendars and as such there value is pretty nill.

Premium "Bill" Mugrage. I owe a lot to my knowledge of Olympia Breweriana to my friend Bill Mugrage. Many a late night was spent in Bill's basment trying to keep up with Bill on a ice cold Oly, Hamm's or a PBR and talking about beer breweries and the charecters that ran them. Bill forgot more than I will ever know about the great breweries in the Northwest. As a pioneer colector in the early 70s Bill got around and talked and made friends with as many people as he could picking their brains. I know he used to tell me stories about the things he learned from Bill Camarano about the beer business in the 30s. Bill aquired an amazing collection of breweriana from all over the Northwest and had fun doing it. Special thanks too to Bill's wife Ellen who has been very generous and gracious in her dealings with Bill's collection after he passed on.  So heres to you Bill I really miss you.
