    Anyone know which week Pliny's back in town (i.e., Denver)? I need to snag a few for a buddy.

    Thanks...

    You could call one of the liquor stores, but I think it'll be in the next week or 2, since it's been 3 weeks since it last hit.

    I think it's been 5-6 weeks, it seems the last 6 months or so we've been getting the batch that's bottled in the first week of the month (although last batch was 11/30/12) and it's typically delivered ~10-14 days after bottling. I honestly expected it last week, but because of the holidays it's likely it got pushed back a week. I'd be really surprised if we didn't see some this Thurs/Friday. But with RR pulling out of WA to focus on local market, who knows what future RR deliveries will be.

    An equally important question is who/when/where will have the Younger on tap in a few weeks...

    Probably typical suspects, just follow the FB pages and I'm sure it will be posted in all their social media outlets and newsletters in the coming weeks.

    Just don't call around, all the bars/restaurants will notify people when they know more information. At this point, considering it doesn't pour until Feb.1st and won't even leave the brewery until then, the earliest it ever makes it to Colorado is around Valentine's Day, and typically the tappings are within the following 2-weeks in compliance with RR's request. I'm not one to know but just hearing from last year, a lot of places don't know until the week it's going to be distributed.

    You mean I should stop calling Falling Rock every day? They love it.

  10. I thought for sure it would arrive this week, considering the last batch we got was before Christmas.

    Anyone have any info on the next release? Is this just a small delay from the holidays?

    Dunno what's up... we haven't seen it in way longer than usual.
  12. I got to wondering the other day if Younger affects things at RR this time of year? I know its a very time, space, and input intensive beer. I cant recall the supply of Elder this time in previous years. Also, im a Lagunitas Sucks addict right now so im not too disappointed.

    chango Aficionado (240) Colorado Mar 31, 2006

    That's a good point... you may have something there.
    I love the crap outta that Sucks, too.
    But, tonight... I'm drinking Oskar The Grausch.
    It's good to work at the booze store sometimes.

    I heard from Epic this morning that Pliney will be around in a week or so. That matches up with what's been said here about the timing of releases. Just happened to talk to an employee and mentioned it, didn't want to be a pest about it.

    But does your source at Epic lift, bro? That is the only way to tell if they are reliable.

    Rolled in and out of Mondo Vino, they let a few people buy cases of it, it was gone in like 2-3 hours. I mean the whole entitlement discussion aside, that's a pretty douche-y thing to do. I know some stores don't care about bottle limits and rely on people to have some sort of moral fabric, but it just doesn't happen. Aside from ^Lukas of course where they give people a day or two notice and announce a specific time they'll release it. But hey, first come first served.

    Yeah there should be some kind of limit, I was surprised to learn the store I go to has a six bottle limit, I am number three on that list so I am awaiting the call. Realistically 3 or 4 would be the most they should do, but its not my business I can't tell them how to run it! Ring phone ring!!!
  23. Prospero

    Prospero Advocate (610) Colorado Jul 27, 2010

    Yea, I'm not saying the stores aren't free to do what they want, just does not seem very logical to benefit a few vs. many. It's around and not that hard to find elsewhere.
  24. Ciani

    Ciani Zealot (85) Missouri Jul 8, 2009

    I went in last night to get 1 for a buddy back in MO (I don't even care for it anymore) and they told me the last one just left. Then a guy came in and got his case. Lame...
  25. There are other IIPAs in the world people!!!! Try something local!!! Yeesh.

    I would just like to remind the general BA community that I had nothing to do with this particular thread.
  27. A case of Pliny is a lot. Think of all the walez you could land.

    Its great but I can't imagine wanting a whole case of Pliny. Alpine Nelson is a different story.
  29. tacosandbeer

    tacosandbeer Savant (360) Colorado Sep 24, 2010

    It's no different than stores posting/tweeting they have certain bottles available when in actuality, they're spoken for before such information is made public. What's the point. So you got a certain bottle. Great. Drink it. Businesses are free to do whatever they want. Sometimes I don't like it, but for the most part I don't care. And Pliny sucks. The only time I seek it out is to pass it along to others. Thanks for listening fellow CO BAs. I love this online family. Hugs to all.

    I'm a bit surprised with this. Usually Pliny sits on Mondo's shelf for a couple of days. Must have been a random customer (or 2) getting cases....or perhaps their allocation was thinner.
  32. Silverthorne just got it in today, so there is hope for all who are still ISO

    We seem to sell out within a few days, but if any of you guys are up around Boulder, hit up Centennial Wine, Get it every other 3 weeks and it last two days. (We even have a two bottle limit) o_O

    Would you guys say it's raining down? I'm trying to get my vocab right.
  39. Prospero

    Prospero Advocate (610) Colorado Jul 27, 2010

    If Cantillon rains down at 20 cases for the state of Colorado every 6 months, I'd consider Pliny to be a pouring down at 40 cases every 5 weeks. Pliny for everyone! (numbers completely made up) But seriously if Cantillon was misting, this is more like a sprinkle.
  40. joshclauss

    joshclauss Savant (305) Colorado Oct 31, 2010

    This sounds like a beer geek mathematical word problem.

    If Cantillon is raining down at a speed of 10 cases per 5 million in population, and Pliny the Elder arrives in the state at a rate of 50 cases, is Pliny considered to be:
    A) Raining down
    B) Pouring in
    C) Crapping all over
    D) Too old to drink already
