Those who thought they missed out on a chance to partake in the younger, triple IPA Pliny can breathe a temporary sigh of relief. Our friends at Haven Gastropub in Old Towne Orange are giving a reason to call in sick *cough cough* tomorrow. Last year's release had lines around the building, so hardcore fans should set their alarm now.
First pour of this annual release is scheduled for 11 a.m. and will be on a first come, first served basis until gone. Assume that there's gonna be a line. In that case, they'll be handing out tickets.
An eight ounce pour of Russian River Brewing Company's 10.5% ABV Pliny the Younger will run you eight bucks. Since you're already there, do a taste comparison with Pliny the Elder (also available on tap). Cheers!
