Pliny the Younger is superior but extremely hard to find on tap.
I called Market of Choice (all of them) in Eugene recently, when did you last see it?

I left my number with about 15 other places..hopefully something will turn up!!!
That list on RR isn't even remotely accurate. Pliny is getting so common in CO, it's hard to find a decent sized liquor store that doesn't carry it. I do a lot of business with Parker Payless in Parker and asked them to start carrying RR last year and I've never seen 'em out of Pliny since. Dunno about shipping however...

if you ever want it in a bottle, just go to Mazara Trattoria on Juniper and 30th in South Park. they always have it and Blind Pig. honestly, I've never gone there to find it's sold out. on the off the chance it is, just go down 30th a few blocks and stop by Hamilton's. they almost always have it on tap.

Also, Par Liqueur on Clairemont Dr has it, but's it's not always the freshest.

I even emailed the owner of Russian River (Vinnie) who could not help me.

I am currently in Kansas, but my sister lives between Eugene and Portland, and I have a lot of family in LA and some friends at Berkeley -- does anyone know where this beer is in stock? I mean getting a hold of the Westvleteren 12 and the Guinness Special Export was nothing compared to this slippery beer.

If you dont end up finding it let me know, its actually carried by 6 places (despite only listing 2 on their website) here in the beer capital of the US (Fort Collins).

Places I have bought it personally:

Wilbors
Supermarket Liquors (they have basically anything you can think of)
Fabby's (where I typically buy it)
Fish's

Supposedly also carried by a few others, though I have never bought anywhere else.
