    does anyone know of any bottle shops that have Pliney the Elder bottles in stock in this area? I am in town this weekend and would love to find some. Thanks

    It hasn't hit stores in a few weeks, the last bottles I saw were 11/26 or so at the usual suspects in OB. That said, check out Liticker's on Voltaire, they generally have it in (the bottles may be older though).

    Hit up Vista Wine and Spirits. They typically have it when it comes out. As the last poster said most bottles I have seen are from the 11/26 batch.

    They are very consistent with fresh batches and cheap pricing. I've bought some bottles there that were a couple days old.

    If you're going to be in Escondido, just go to Stone and drink it on tap.

    Or head to San Marcos and drink it up at Churchills.

    This. Usually the Olive Tree Plinys I buy are like two-four days old.

    They're already getting cleaned out too quickly. No need for any new customers
