Pliny The Younger – 2015 Shitstorm

IMG_1485-0
Hello all,

If attending the Kiwi Herman release at Alpine a few weeks back was any indication of how craft beer events will go in 2015, I expect an all out shitshow with the highly anticipated release of Russian Rivers’ Pliny the Younger. San Diego is pretty lucky to receive as much Pliny as it does, but even then, you guys swallow it up as if there are not any other Double/Triple IPA options in the double digit ABV range. Having started this tracking thing two years ago, it seems pretty consistent that places that got Pliny last year will again see it this year. However, I do expect more locations to be pretty hush-hush about its tappings along with ticketed events that sold out rather quickly and a lot easier to manage.

I’d like to preface this post by saying that I do not have any kind of insider information. People do email and tweet me with leads and insights, however, don’t blame me when all the bros drank all the Pliny while you were standing in line outside the bar. So here it goes, your annual list of Younger tappings:
(I’ll post the list later), but thought I’d like to get out some preliminary info on a few locations.

O’Briens: Saturday the 14th @5PM and lunch time Tuesday the 17th. There will also be a charity keg that will be tapped on Wednesday the 25th at 5pm. The charity keg will be tickets only, starting to go on sale on Friday the 13th at the pub. Tickets are $20 for a 10oz glass with a max of 2 tickets per person.

Churchills: March 7th for their annual Renaissance festival starting at 11am. Taplist is crazy, expect a line starting early in the morning.

Thanks for reading and happy hunting,
-Manny
