Also can get tons of other brews including bells, stone, founders, lagunitas, Avery and many more!

Pliny is the IPA by which all others are judged. most I can get is 2 bottles from my contact, so 2 for 2?

I can do two for one of your wanton the dfh 120 its a 10$ a bottle brew. It is a 2012 bottle and this last years was the best one released yet. But I can do two bottles of something else. Just throw some things at me. I have a 2012 stone Russian imp stout. That is an amazing brew. Cheers!

Can you get any Bells Black note? I can get pliny and other So Cal goodies from San Diego.

Most people who have access to Pliny already can find Lagunitas and Stone brews fairly easily.

Yea I was thinking when I put the reply about the stone rid. Idk man I will just have to check. I know I can get alto of bells. I have an expedition stout clearing right now if that interests you. Can you get founders? I have some founder breakfast stouts which nowhere near as sought after as kbs or cbs but very very good stout.

I'm heading down into Sacramento and then the East Bay today. I'll make a few stops at places I'm fairly sure carry it.

I'd be interested in the DFH, if you don't get any takers before I get back tonight.

I've had some offers but you have alto more posts and are a senior member so make me more comfortable dealing with you. Not dissing anyone else but I guess anyone could relate too wat I'm saying. Just shoot me a pm I can get a bunch of other really cool dfh stuff if you wanton anything else too. Cheers!

Well, long day. Stopped by at least 10 stores that I know are on their distribution list and struck out. All but one carry Pliny, when they can get it. "Everybody's out". Blah, I know...

Found one store that will have some soon. It just happened to be a couple blocks off the UC Davis campus. He said he's getting two cases in tomorrow, but that's a 90 minute return drive, so I told him I'd try again next week or so. He told me he has a second store about 30 minutes from my house that got a case today. Went 30 minutes out of my way on the way home to get there, and sure enough, there were 8 Pliny's left from the two cases that came in today. I didn't want to be a jerk and take what was left, so I grabbed 2 and left a few for the next guy.

Cracked one open to try it (I've never had one, to be honest) and I'm in love.

Gave the second one to my father. He's sunk about $300 into my equipment and another $100 into ingredients that I wanted, so he deserved it. If he doesn't want it, I'll send it your way. He tasted mine and said "hmmm, that's different". His is in the fridge for at least the night. Not sure if that means he likes or dislikes it.

"Bottled on" date is 011013, so it's pretty darn fresh!
