Pilgrimage to Russian River Brewing

Pliny the Elder by Russian River Brewing is the number 1 Double (Imperial) IPA in the world.  It is only distributed to 8 areas – 7 in California and 1 in Pennsylvania.  Fortunately one location is San Jose, so we were able to locate some 500 ml bottles at Whole Foods to drink at Christopher and Kristin’s house.

Pliny the Younger is the world’s number 1 Triple IPA and is only brewed once a year.  It is available the first two weeks in February only at the taproom.  We stood in line for 5 hours – actually Kara and Jamie stood in line for the second half of the time – and finally made it inside.  It was worth it – PTY was sublime!!
