From 1978 - 1983, Olympia sponsored the Chicagofest, a summer music festival that took place on the Navy Pier. Performers over the years included The Blues Brothers, Muddy Waters, Skafish, and the Scorpions.

Olympia is an American brewing company that was founded in the late 1800s in Washington state by Leopold Schmidt. They were known for making affordable lagers until they were acquired by G. Heileman Brewing Company in 1983 (After a change of hands several times, Pabst bought Olympia beer in 1999).
