Pliny the Elder Ice Cream at Three Twins, All-Night Happy Hour at The Page for Haighteration's Birthday
If you're a fan Russian River's Pliny the Elder, enjoy all its hoppiness in ice cream form next Tuesday at Three Twins. In honor of local blog Haighteration's first birthday, the Lower Haight shop is mixing up 10 quarts of Pliny the Elder ice cream (beer courtesy of Toronado), which general manager Carmen Shereondy says "tastes almost exactly like the beer."
With all this talk of Pliny the Younger coming out, I had to put a word in for Pliny the Elder, Russian River Brewing's famous Double IPA. This beer is year-round, so you don't have to get stressed out if you forget to seek it out. It's an exorbitantly hopped beer that expresses bright, fresh flavors of pine, grapefruit, white flowers and lemon zest.
