If you can’t get enough OLY beer history you should check out Megan Ockerman’s research and writing on The Olympia Brewing Company http://www.dissertations.wsu.edu/Thesis/Spring2017/m_ockerman_051717.pdf Megan says the story about Schmidt’s pivotal visit to the barbershop may be apocryphal. She has a book on the Olympia Brewing Company coming out soon.
For the audio nerds: I had a second mic set up 100 feet away using a limiter and a low input to catch the whistle blast at the golf course. I wish I had set the input even lower.
