What might be considered the holy grail of craft beer, is about to make its yearly appearance.
Pliny the Younger is due to be released on February 1st at the Russian River brewpub in Santa Rosa and at some lucky bars and pubs. I you are lucky enough to be in the area, the next two weeks are sure to be a mad-house at the brewpub. Plan accordingly!
As for my friends here in Southern California, do not frown. There are a few accounts on the Orange County area that are sure to get a keg or two. Last year Tustin Brewing Co., The Crow Bar, and Haven Gastropub were only three among many other accounts that carried Younger. Keep your eyes and ears open for announcements at your favorite watering-hole for your chance to taste this magnificat brew.
Be sure to check out russianriverbrewing.com for more information.
As for yours truly, I'm taking the easy way out. I'm takin a trip to the Bay Area and will take a detour to Santa Rosa and grab some Younger directly from the source. I don't mean to brag, by I am so excited about this! Expect a post about this in the very near future.
Until Then, Cheers!!
