So is part of Oregon, such as the deep water port of Coos Bay, the railroad line to which was part of the Southern Pacific system in the Steam Era. I imagine most of the freight cars on it then were flat cars or boxcars with lumber doors in their ends. Perhaps some refrigerator cars for seafood shipping.

I think beer may have travelled in steam era freight cars to Alaska.

Well said, but there are many companies that use what are called adjuncts in the brewing of "beer".  An adjunct is any source of fermentables that is not malted barley (or wheat or rye).  Rice is particularly prevalent in beers brewed to the west of California, but my sense is that corn is just as (perhaps more) common in U.S. lagers from the large macrobreweries.
The Germans have traditionally been rather stuffy about the use of adjuncts, with various iterations of their Reinheitsgebot (purity regulations) dating back to the 16th century.  Traditionally, to be called beer in Germany, the only ingredients allowed are malt, hops, water, and yeast.
Actually, many very good beers contain adjuncts, often some form of table sugar (sucrose).  FBOFW, these additions increase the alcohol content without making the bee
