Olympia Brewing Company The Capital Brewing Company became the Olympia Brewing Co. in 1902, and at that time chose the slogan "It's the Water" for their flagship brand "Olympia Beer," in part to explain why the Tumwater lagers were so good.

While brewing operations left Washington almost two decades ago, the Olympia brand has recently returned to its roots in Tumwater, Washington with the opening of Olympia Distilling Co., home of Olympia Artesian Vodka – an unbelievably smooth vodka distilled and bottled locally.
