Plenty of Pliny


Pliny-the-YoungerWell there’s never really plenty of Pliny but there the highly sought Russian River Pliny the Younger is showing up around town. This weekend it made its 2010 debut at Capone’s in East Norriton but we’re sure its long gone now.

Tonight the Grey Lodge is tapping a beer that rhymes with “Whiny the Unger.” Yes, the tapping has become such a happening that the Northeast bar has resorted to codewords and a ticketing system. Starting at 5pm they will hand out tickets reserving an 8-ounce pour of the beer geek elixer. The beer will be tapped at 7pm. Figure 76 glasses can be drawn from the sixtel.

On Wednesday, Resurrection Ale House will be pouring a sixtel of Pliny the Younger. The first twenty Resurrection email list members who replied will get the opportunity to come in at 11:30 am to enjoy the beer in relative peace. At noon the doors open to the general beer geek population and chaos is sure to ensue. Especially with Ommegang Chocolate Indulgence, Pliny the Elder, and Lagunitas Hop Stoopid also on tap.

Memphis Taproom will be offering up a similar deal on Friday, March 5th, pouring their sixtel first to email list members and then opening the doors to the rest of the beer crazed world.

Pliny will be tapped at both Tria locations on Saturday, March 13th at noon. No tickets or other tricks to get a chance at the beer there. Just arrive early.

On the 20th you can get your Pliny the Younger at TJ’s in Paoli. Orders are taken at 2pm, the sixtel will be tapped at 4pm.

That makes seven sixtels accounted for, there’s an estimated 10 in the Philadelphia area. But where and when will we find the others?
