Try the world famous Toronado beer bar on Haight St. If they don't have it I guarantee you will find something else you've never seen. Cash only.

You could also try Magnolia. I've never been, but hear it is a good spot for a beer. I believe that the Rogue Alehouse also carries a good selection of non-Rogue taps.

Good luck. If all else fails, the brewery is only about an hour's drive north!!

Try at a store, - liqour, grocery, party, etc. I was just out in the bay area (not SF) but saw it by the bottle all over the place.

Toronado should always have it, and Whole foods has it in bottles. If you are in SF your only about 1 hour 15 mins away from Russian River Brewery.

I was at Toronado about 2 weeks ago, and they had it.

Are you talking Elder or Younger? You may be getting that look because of the recent Younger release and all the bartenders think you're asking for that. I would defintely try the Toronado in the Lower Haight.

Yeah, since they started bottling it, Pliny the Elder is everywhere around here now. (hooray!)

As to the Younger... that was sold out within 24 hours of it's release. (And it was deeee-licious!!)
