Many people have at least HEARD of Russian River Brewing. AND if you have heard of Russian River, you’ve heard of what is considered one of the best IPAs in the world, “Pliny The Elder”. Pliny has another family member that is even harder to come by, and perhaps even more popular than Elder – “Pliny The Younger”. Younger hits again this year – February 4, 2011.
Pliny The Younger is an imperial IPA, 11% ABV. It’s a hoppy hoppy beer.
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.
Russian River changed the rules for 2011, to increase availability. Read RR’s statement below.
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!
Availability: Pub release in California. Rarely, seen outside of CA
