Here at Reclaimed, our Rainier Brew inventory has 3 distinct patina's brown, grey, white "white washed". All Patinas are different based on personal opinion, cameras, lighting and taste.
Our wood has another distinct quality besides it's old growth quality. We have the natural staining from metal or cracking in the wood which creates a dark almost black stain on the wood itself.

ENJOY OUR LASTING HISTORY
After all this time, folks just took for granted that Rainier would be there forever. Well, all things change, ending a 119-year brewing tradition.
Douglas Fir Antique Timbers can often be graded (generally WCLB) upon request. It is highly recommended that any timbers that are to be used in a structural application be graded. It is also recommended that standard size timbers be used whenever possible. Checking tends to be more pronounced in timbers wider and/or thicker than 12" than in standard size timbers.
