Where to order Pliny
« on: January 08, 2014, 04:47:12 PM »
Anyone know any site that will ship some Pliny bottles?  Or a growler of younger in February ?

Growlers of younger no longer exist, unless a bar other than the Santa Rosa location is filling on their own.

Its technically illegal to ship beer.

That being said if you have a friend int he Ca area or in Philly(the only place not on the west coast that gets RRBC beers) then coerce them to ship them, it will be tons cheaper

Sweet talk a beer of the month club into offering it. I imagine Vinnie won't mind the business

From what I have heard, Vinnie is very particular about where his beer can be sold. Must be stored and displayed cold. I don't think he would allow standard shipping.

Probably true. If I had a brewery I'd be particular so long as it was served everywhere

This is good advice.  I know you can get it in Denver, too.

he actually just pulled back from some farther flung accounts because he was at capacity and doesn't want to expand.

And that is another reason Pliny will continue to be on the list of best beers and pilgrimages to find/drink Pliny will continue.   Great beer and probably a smart decision in the craft beer world to really manage growth....but probably not an easy decision considering demand is ridiculously high for Russian River.

Brew it yourself. It's not a tough recipe. The clones I have tasted have been good. Not perfect, but good.

This weekend I am brewing a session pliney with mosaic subbed for Simcoe.

I (perhaps) had a BA friend who would send me boxes of it for Florida CCB beers a couple years ago. It was all gravy until one day I came home and saw a plastic USPS box at the front door. A few bottles broke and good guy USPS put the soaking wet box in a big ziplock and still delivered. After that I got a little nervous about trading beer.

Elder

http://beerpulse.com/2013/07/30-online-links-where-you-can-buy-alpine-beer-co-and-russian-river-at-this-very-moment/

I have not used any of those stores. I have ordered a lot of beer (including Pliny the Elder) from Bine and Vine, but they no longer carry Russian River.

Younger?

Find a friend in Santa Rosa with a time machine and send him back to 2010.

Note: these sites are only going to ship beer to states which have a reciprocal agreement with their state.

It's only illegal through the post office.  There is no law against using UPS, DHL, or FEdex.

March 6 - Memphis Taproom
March 7- The Sidecar Bar & Grille
March 9 - City Tap House & Iron Abbey Gastro Pub
March 10 - Monk's Cafe
