If you haven’t been lately, that’s changed. The shift toward destination status is reflected in a number of artisanal and craft pursuits, not the least of which would be the beer. The Olympia Brewing Co. may be gone, but here’s a rundown of some establishments that have picked up the brewing baton in Washington State’s capital, and are running with it.”
