Russian River Pliny the Elder

WINDSOR, CALIFORNIA – A bit of history first: Vinnie Cilurzo brewed America's first Double IPA, named  "Inaugural Ale", back in 1994 at Blind Pig Brewing Co, Temecula, CA.  That operation closed a few years later. Then Vinnie was hired as the original and only head brewer at Korbel Champagnes Cellars' foray into brewing – Russian River Brewing Co. Vinnie and his wife, Natalie bought the brewery a few years later and opened their Santa Rosa location. The rest, as they say is history. Vinnie is the originator of this style and he still brews the best version – Pliny the Elder. Brewed with copious amounts of Amarillo, Centennial, CTZ, and Simcoe hops. Very hoppy, but not a hop bomb – the balance of the malt and hops is extraordinary. Super drinkable, but be careful…it is 8%abv. $8.50 PINT
