My general libation of choice leans strongly to wine but every now and then when I welcome a twist to the taste buds through unique beers. Yesterday was one such opportunity. Hanging at my buddy Adam’s backyard, he introduced me to the Pliny the Elder beer and what a knockout punch this brew delivers! From the Russian River Brewing Company in Santa Rosa, California – this beast is big on hoppy flavor. Has a nice amber color, smooth malt flavor and a nice long bitter finish. Adam – thanks for the steak, jam session on the drums and the Elder! Had a great time!
