Pliny the Younger 2013 Release

On February 1, 2013 we trekked to San Francisco to move a friend to San Diego and while we were there we went to Santa Rosa/Russian River Brewing Company for the first day of the 2013 Pliny the Younger release! We spent 4 1/2 hours in line - 3pm to 7:30pm and passed the time chatting to the many craft beer enthusiasts that braved the long line as well. We finally made it in and boy was it worth it! The experience of drinking Pliny the Younger on the first day with so many other exuberant people is not to be missed. Without further ado, the pictures!

Pliny the Younger!

The front of the incredibly long line, which at one point stretched all the
way down the block and quite aways around the corner (several hundred feet).

The Line continued.

My lovely wife and Jon's wife Lindsay - our DD who
we are eternally grateful and indebted to.
