More than a century ago, this "Vitamin R" (Rainier Beer) tap handle made the long journey from Seattle to the Cactus Saloon, a bar that operated from 1889-1910 across from the Southern Pacific Depot in downtown Tucson, Arizona. We dug it up along with plenty of bottles during our excavations of historic Block 83. Belly up to the blog (www.desert.com/tippling-history) for pics and stories of the history of spirits and beer in the Old Pueblo, and think about taking the streetcar for a tour of watering holes in historic buildings like @theindependentdistillery and @hotelcongress.
