2017 Calendars Are Here
Every year the arrival of O Bee’s annual calendar is a much anticipated event. Beginning in mid-October, the calendars are available free of charge to everyone in the community. They disappear quickly -- we’ve even seen a few offered for resale on EBay. Why all the passion around a free calendar? The calendars have become collector’s items because they strike an emotional cord for many people. Each calendar features beautiful photography celebrating different aspect of the Olympia Brewery history, from 1960s beer ads to brewery memorabilia collected by employees over the years. The Olympia Brewery was more than just place to work, it was a way of life. O Bee’s deep connection with the brewery and its employees continues today.
The 2017 calendar features horse-drawn carriages and delivery trucks from the Olympia Brewery and Oly distributors dating from 1906 to 1956. These sturdy vehicles roamed the roads and dependably delivered Olympia Beer to grateful customers across the Pacific Northwest. O Bee Credit Union is proud to be able to reproduce these images for the first time in decades. They are curated from the Olympia Tumwater Foundation’s expansive collection. Drop in to any branch to pick up your free calendar today. Grab one for a friend too.
