It’s Pliny the Younger season again. The once-a-year triple IPA from Russian River makes beer geeks totally lose their freaking minds. The limited run beer is only shipped to select markets (Philadelphia is the only location east of the Mississippi to receive it). Last night it was tapped and kicked in no time at TJ’s in Paoli. Last year there were only 10 or so sixtels delivered to Philadelphia and each of them created its own spectacle.
Tickets are on sale now for Sunday’s tapping at the Khyber Pass Pub. Each ticket is $15, the profits of which go to The Free Library Of Philadelphia Foundation.
Monday has the Younger and seven other Russian River beers on tap at Monk’s Cafe. Younger will be tapped at 11:20am and sold for $15 per glass. All the proceeds all go to Alex’s Lemonade Stand.
We’ll update this post as we learn of more Pliny the Younger tappings.
