The big “T” atop the Tully’s headquarters building next to Interstate 5 in Seattle came down Monday.

Pabst Brewing, which owns Rainier Beer, plans to install on Oct. 24 a replica — built by Western Neon — of the big “R” that stood on the brewery for 50 years until 2000.

The Tully’s headquarters is moving to a spot near Pike Place Market. A Tully’s spokeswoman said it isn’t ready to disclose its plans for the letter.

The building now sports two big signs bearing a big “?” on them with arrows pointing up to where the new “R” will stand. The signs also include the Web address — whatbelongshere.com — for more information on the changing of the letters.

The “T” was put up in 2000 when Tully’s moved its roasting plant into the building. It replaced the original “R,” which is now displayed at Seattle’s Museum of History & Industry (MOHAI).
