According to the website www.heywhatsthat.com, the straight-line distance on the map between the two peaks is approximately 195 miles. The red "visibility cloak" confirms that Brunswick and Rainier are intervisible with each other, and it may also be possible to see Rainier from even farther away (ex. Mt. Garibaldi).
I used my program to check NNW from Rainier, and it appears that one should be able to see Rainier from Quiver Peak, in Garibaldi Provincial Park, at a distance of 225.8 miles (363.4 km). Here is the location of Quiver Peak: http://www.mytopo.com/maps.cfm?mtlat=50.04780&mtlon=-122.78685
This is the farthest distance I found in that direction that should have a view of Rainier. It is possible because of the low elevation of the Seattle area. The view actually does not go over Puget Sound like the view from Brunswick does.
