PLINY THE YOUNGER IS COMING TO TOWN!
We’re excited to be selected to pour Russian River Brewing Company’s Pliny the Younger this year. We look forward to having you here to experience this one of a kind, limited beer. Due to the rarity and demand for this beer, we’re going to have a few guidelines for this release. Please read below for answers to any questions you may have.
WHEN: Wednesday, February 13th at 11:30am.
The Beer: (from Russian River Brewing Company)
Pliny the Younger is considered a “triple” IPA, simply meaning that it is higher in alcohol and has tons of hops. The alcohol should finish at about 10.25%, although it is remarkably dry for the amount of malt used in the recipe. It is loaded with hop flavors, bitterness, and aromatics. The hops used in this year’s recipe are of excellent quality from the 2018 harvest: Warrior, Amarillo, Simcoe, Centennial, CTZ, Chinook, Crystal, and Citra. Younger was brewed for the first time in 2005 as a winter seasonal, building upon the Pliny the Elder recipe while pushing the envelope with malt, hops, and alcohol just to see how far they could go!
We’ll be doing a 1 pour per person limit at $9 for a 10oz pour.
We’ll also have several other Russian River beers on tap including Pliny the Elder, Supplication, and many more.
