Caretaker Tristan Kempton and his watchdog, Ruger, stand on the roof of the historic Tumwater Brewery overlooking the brewing tower in Tumwater, Wash., as they make rounds on Wednesday, May 14, 2014. A new partnership wants to redevelop the historic brewhouse in Tumwater and restore the site's original purpose: Brewing beer. Referred to as the Craft Brewing and Distilling Center, the proposal was announced May 15, 2014 as a key step in transforming the vacant area into an economic hub that generates jobs and tourism. The project targets the historic brewery properties north of Custer Way that are owned by Centralia-based developer George Heidgerken. Located next to the Deschutes River, the old brewhouse was part of Olympia Brewery, which closed in 2003 after nearly 100 years of making beer. (AP Photo/The Olympian, Tony Overman) less
