Pliny (The Younger) Watch!

UPDATED: With info on Green Dragon’s event
Russian River’s Pliny the Younger is coming to town (squeeeee!!!). Quit your incessant schoolgirl whining, it’s as if Justin Bieber made sweet underrage love with Mariah Carey in a vat of Russian River beer. Atleast that’s how many beer geeks react to it’s tapping each year. Though I urge you dont believe the hype, many of you will seek it out anyway. So here is details on a couple of tappings in the next week in Portland.

If your reading this now you likely missed APEX’s tapping at 11:30 am Saturday March 2nd though they may still have on other Double/Triple IPA’s Boneyard Notorious, Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA and Double Mountain Molten Lava.

There will be two Three more chances to get your Pliny on this week.

On Tuesday, March 5 at 4:30pm, Wildwood Restaurant & Bar, one of the best beer focused restaurants in town will be tapping their keg and will also be serving draft Russian River Supplication from 2010, 2011, and 2012 available in glass pours and flights. In bottles they will be offering Temptation, Sanctification, and multiple vintages of Consecration and Supplication.

              The keg at Higgins lasted 10 minutes. There weren’t even THAT many people there.

                  I heard from another beer bar owner that County Cork was not getting a keg this year.
