    Last time I was in SF, I stopped in Monk's Kettle, looked at their beer list, saw Pliny, and said, "Oh, you have Pliny...better have one of those."

    Guy sits down next to me, also from out of town, looks at the beer menu, says "Oh, I'll have a Pliny."

    Guy sits on the other side of me at the bar...killing a couple hours before a flight back to Pittsburgh...doesn't look at the menu, because he did his research and is there for..."Pliny."

    I like a number of other beers more (like Heady Topper), but ya, I can see why they're making some money at Russian River...

    I frequent a local English pub that usually has Pliny the Elder on tap. They're getting $9.50 a pint. I can never pass it up, even at that price. No surprise it brings in $4 million for Sonoma County.
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    being in the beer industry brewing for 11 years, i love myself some pliney. I can't justify almost $10 pints for something that is "rare" by choice. Back in the day it was game changing, but its not at that caliber anymore.

    Haha. That's how I feel about ballast point now. It's like $15 for a six pack of sculpin.... There are many good IPAs to choose from in the $7-9 range.

    It's a once a month thing and only one pint a visit.

    If you like Pliny, give Block 15 Sticky Hands a try.
