    Yeah, but by then hops have totally faded. Nothing worse than stale Younger.

    First keg of Younger kicked at The Bistro in 74 min. Second keg kicked in 105 min.

    Yes, somebody is actually timing it.

    No, it's not me.

    Enjoying it as I type this at the Lafayette Parc hotel. It's a bit of a shot show, but a very older mellow crowd. Cheers.

    This has been my spot for a few years now. Always a smaller crowd, no rowdiness, and very enjoyable atmosphere.

    Yes, literally nothing is worse than 3 week old Pliny the Younger. Child slavery you say? No, not as bad.

    This is true.

    I'm waiting for the two most famous Santa Rosans to collab. Vinnie and Guy's Double Donkey Sauce Nacho Cheese IPA. Barrel Aged with Lacto of course.

    The Hopyard in San Ramon gets some, but usually tap it after beer week.

    Call Pete's Brass Rail in Danville. They always get it. Toronado is tapping it everyday during beer week.

    Anyone know if any spots in the Sacramento/Davis area are getting any? Last year Burgers and Brew got some but I didn't find out until it was too late.

    Well that's irritating to hear. I went out of my way to go to the Bistro on Thurs, arrived about 7:05 PM, and was told by the bartender that they were out already.

    Even though your post doesn't jive with the other one saying keg #2 lasted 105 mins, either way they clearly had some when I was there.

    Keep your eyes out, Blue Palms in Hollywood gets it every year. I believe they will have it on in the next week or two.

    Sorry to hear that you weren't able to drink any younger there. I do know that I got served at 5:15am and when I was leaving at 6:30 they had removes the tap handle and were only pouring elder. I don't see why they would lie about not having any beer left.

    Check with Pangaea or Samuel Hornes, I'm sure they will be getting PtY but even if they don't advertise it, it will kick quickly.

    Surly Goat as well. We need a kind regular to mention any notifications written on the chalkboard behind the bar.

    It pains me that Younger most likely will be at Pangea. They might sell it for $20 a glass, or pair it with another band you never heard for $60 and a chance to buy a pint.

    Fuck Pangea.

    Agreed. Those who go to that place, deserve to be ripped off.

    Yes, several places get it. I've had it at 3 different locations now. Hope they figure out to sell tickets.

    Ok this is my last day to try to have a couple glasses of the younger. If there are any other places other than Tornado tapping today in SF area please share.

    Why the hate for Pangea? I've only been in there once myself, but that is primarily because I work in Davis, and the Davis Beer Shoppe's selection is much better.

    Because they are shameless gougers. You know that last year, they announced they were getting a keg of Younger, and to get a taste of it you had to buy a ticket to their event featuring some no name local R&B guy, and it cost $70, right? (And that's just to get in. You still had to buy your beer.) They eventually dropped it to $40 after they couldn't find enough suckers, but that's still totally taking advantage of people. Things like that will engender some bad feelings among local beer geeks.

    Anyway, if you live in Davis, the thing to do is just make the 80 minute drive to Santa Rosa. Go on a week day, and you won't have to wait long. Last time I got there at 10:45 and was drinking the Younger by 11:15.
