Default Looking for Pliny the Elder

I'll be in the Santa Cruz / Watsonville / Monterey area over Presidents day weekend. Anyone know a place in that area I could pick up some Pliny?

Elder or Younger? I ask because I was under the impression that the Elder was readily available year round up that way. I know I picked up a bunch of 16 oz bottles of Elder last year on a trip to Livermore.

I was just looking for Elder at this point. Of course if the Younger is on tap anywhere near where I'd be all over that.

I know I could get Pliny the Elder at the brewery. I was hoping for a store / bar closer to the Monterey / Santa Cruz area.

You might just call Russian River and ask them.

the Russian River website lists some places that has its beers http://russianriverbrewing.com/web/accounts/index.html

In addition, certain stores here in santa rosa do carry some bottles from RR. I doubt that they are available out of the area though.

Well you can get Pliny in bottles at some Whole Foods around here, in addition to some bottle shops. And there are bottles of other stuff floating around as well. I know where I can pick up Temptation, for example.
