I refuse to say "Ply-knee" for this reason. Talked with Vinnie about it once and he shook his head saying he knew now, but didn't know then.

Got correct pronunciation a few years ago from a buddy who knew all about Pliny before ever hearing of the beer. Hard to change.

This is like people who pronounce primer like primmer. And why I hate the English language.

They should have spelled it Plinny if they expected us to know how to pronounce it.  I'd heard of Pliny the Elder (and Younger) before the beer(s), but I still didn't know how it was supposed to be pronounced.  I go back and forth, sometimes it's Pliny, other times Plinny.

But it's Vinnie's beer, he can pronounce it any way he wants regardless of the historical pronunciation.
