Although Santa Rosa's Russian River Brewing Co. may look like any other pub, it's somewhat of a mecca and home to some of California's finest craft beers, including the cult favorite, Pliny the Younger. Released every February, (Growlers only, no bottles) for a brief one-time brewing, it's why many beer lovers (including myself) make an annual trek from SF up 101 N. I liken its taste to a sloppy kiss from a Redwood mixed with a fresh bitterness. Considered a heavy-duty double IPA, (India Pale Ale), only a few select locations in San Francisco will serve it, and I've been told by Beth at City Beer Store that they'll put it on tap on Friday. See you there!
