Pliny the Younger fever is heating up as the rare and highly sought after Russian River beer was delivered to local bars yesterday. City Tap House’s Andy Farrell tweeted a photo of the white whale of the beer world.
The beer is a triple IPA and its late winter release creates a nerdy hysteria across the country. The vast majority of the beer is distributed in California and the Pacific Northwest with some kegs making it to Denver. In past years Philadelphia has been the only East Coast city to receive shipments and it looks like that’s the case this year too (Take that DC, Boston, New York!). Farrell’s already fielded phone calls from Washington DC, Trenton and New Brunswick, New Jersey about his plans for tapping the sixtel.
Who gets to pour the beer is almost as geekily anticipated as who gets to drink it. This marks the first year that City Tap House will have a sixtel and of course Farrell and company are planning an event around the tapping.
UPDATE #7: We’ve moved our coverage to a listing format. Check it out here.
Capone’s in East Norriton gets praise from many a beer fiend and when you look at their current draft list, it’s no wonder.
Among the highlights, Southern Tier Choklat, St. Bernardus Christmas, Allagash Victor ’07, Founders Cerise and many many more.
