Summary
The abandoned Olympia Beer Brewery, Tumwater, Washington
The Miller Brewing Company shut down the 107 year old Olympia Beer Brewery in 2003.  These images, made in late 2011 and 2012 show an abandoned hallmark of the region.  Offices appear as if the employees left in a hurry, leaving furniture, phones and computers.  Thieves have stolen most of the copper wiring, and kids would go there to party.
