Russian River Brewing Company’s Pliny the Younger
The Russian River Brewing Company in downtown Santa Rosa (725 4th Street, Santa Rosa, CA, 95404) has some of my favorite brew in Northern California. On Friday they had their annual release of Pliny the Younger. It’s good beer that will go quickly. Get some now or wait til next year!
Here is what the brewery has to say about scoring some of this tasty brew…
“We are releasing Pliny the Younger on February 4, 2011! Due to the overwhelming turnout last year, we have made a few changes to enable more beer enthusiasts, like yourself, as well as our regular customers to enjoy some Younger! It will be available on draft in 10oz. pours at our pub from February 4th-17th. We will allocate a certain number of kegs each day in order to last the full 2 weeks. Our employees will not know how many kegs they are getting each day. And they won’t know when we might run out. In addition, there will be NO GROWLERS. The only way to get it to go is in your tummy!”
11.0%ABV, 1.098 O.G, GOBS of BUs
Pliny the Younger was Pliny the Elder’s nephew, in the case of this beer, the “Younger” is a triple IPA. Pliny the Younger is hopped three times more than our standard IPA, and is dry hopped four different times.
Seasonal release (February) available at the pub and for distribution.
