Pliny the Elder is brewed with Amarillo, Centennial, CTZ, and Simcoe hop. It is even with malt, hops, and alcohol, marginally bitter with a fresh hop aroma of flower, citrus, and pine. Best appreciated FRESH! That is the reason we make it in such restricted gracefully. The genuine packaging date is imprinted on each bottle!

Where did we think of this name? Back in the year 2000, our companion, Vic Kralj, who claims the Bistro in Hayward, California, chosen to have his first-since forever Double IPA celebration. Vic welcomed 10 breweries, 6 of whom (counting us) needed to brew something special for him since we didn't have anything that would fall under this style class. Vinnie had made a Double IPA at Blind Pig Brewing Co. in 1994 yet was not brewing one at Russian River Brewing Co. at that point. He had a thought for the recipe, however not a name. After much examination in beer books, conceptualizing, and pondering, we concocted "Pliny the Elder". Pliny, the man, lived in the primary century-23 to 79 A.D. As per our brewing references, he and his counterparts either made the natural name or possibly expounded on Lupus Salictarius, or hops, as of now known as Humulus Lupulus. That was an early reference to a significant piece of any Double IPA! Pliny, the beer has now gotten one of our lead brews!

Pliny the Elder was deified by his nephew, Pliny the Younger, who expounded on his uncle capitulating to debris and smoke during the ejection of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A.D. while protecting individuals. Cheers to the researcher, history specialist, official, essayist, and Roman Naturalist-Pliny the Elder!
