Finally went down today.. the line was only about an hour long..

Despite the other thread "hashing" PtY.. I can now say.. I disagree. Pty was a beautifully balanced beer this year again. It isn't a hop bomb.. it's a beautiful high gravity beer 10+ABV and there is a wonderful balance between maltiness and hops. I'll go back again a couple of times before it's cut off. Valentines Day I believe.

I'll likely go again.. possibly tomorrow.. but, won't be until around noon. I don't drink before noon Yah. Right.

EDIT: Ok.. went today.. had some more.. and picked up a growler or PtE and a PtY T-shirt along with some PtY coasters..

So, will I go back again tomorrow? I'll bet. $4.50 a glass for a 10.8 beautiful beer..

Was there on the 1st.. 3rd in line, all the way from Denver. Was worth the trip! I'm jealous of the locals!

Isn't it great??? Yah, it's local.. but.. I can't believe how delicious this is every year. You come in thinking it's a hop bomb.. but neither Elder nor Younger have an overpowering hop flavor.. as I said before.. beautiful balance.

Vin is a master.

Oh, and welcome to our part of Sonoma County. Hope you got a chance to go to Bear Republic and Lagunitas.

It was a great beer but nothin to go crazy about in my opinion. I definitely wouldn't wait 8 hours plus for it. That's ridiculous! Over hyped in my opinion.

Went yesterday morning. It was as I remembered it from last year, amazing aroma and extremely well balanced for what it is. Hit Bear Republic last night and Moylans and Lagunitas today. Still gotta figure out dinner for tonight and hitting the road tomorrow for the long drive back home.

Too bad we weren't in contact.. I'd a had you up for some BBQ or sumptin. I drove by today about 1PM and the line was around the corner.. twice as long as it was on Wednesday. I'd guess it's due to the weekend. I'll go back on Monday around noon.. after some food.. and enjoy a couple more. That'll likely be my lst for this go around.

Mrshotshot.. Maybe.. but, IFFFF.. I could make a beer half that beautiful.. I'd consider myself a winner We all have different tastes.

I waited 7 hours. It was fun.

Pliny the Younger was okay. I'd rather have a Ruination though.
