Pliny the Younger is Back! Here’s How to Get Your Hands on the Famous NorCal Craft Beer.

Russian River Brewing is gearing up for the highly anticipated limited release of Pliny the Younger, a beloved Triple India Pale Ale sought after by craft beer enthusiasts. Starting Friday, March 22, the high-octane brew will be available for a short time exclusively at Russian River’s Santa Rosa and Windsor pub locations.

Pliny the Younger, distinct from the year-round Pliny the Elder, boasts a robust 10.25% alcohol content and is renowned for its bold hop flavors, bitterness, and aromatics. Brewed since 2005 as a seasonal offering, the beer pushes the boundaries of malt, hops, and alcohol, resulting in a dry yet flavorful profile.

Each year, the brewery selects top-quality hops for Pliny the Younger, ensuring a unique flavor profile while maintaining the beer’s signature characteristics. This year’s brew features a blend of Simcoe, Amarillo, Citra, Mosaic, Elixir, Warrior, and Nectaron hops, resulting in a medium-bodied beer with vibrant notes of orange, stone fruit, and citrus.

Beer enthusiasts eager to sample this year’s batch of Pliny the Younger will have a limited window of opportunity, as the beer will only be available from March 22 to April 4 at Russian River Brewing’s Santa Rosa and Windsor pub locations. Don’t miss your chance to experience this highly sought-after brew!
