Default Where is Pliny?!

I made a thread here about a month ago regarding a beer tasting party I would be having on my Birthday in April -- got a lot of great advice and so far my beer list is quite impressive. I am missing Pliny the Elder, unfortunately. How can I have a beer party without it?? I have been calling several locations nearly each day for the past month to no avail. 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.

Cheers,
IHateMayonnaise

You can get it on tap and in the bottle in Denver, CO. I am going to be heading to Denver/Ft. Collins in the not to distant future and plan on picking up a case when I am down there. If you can't get ahold of any within the next few weeks PM me. Montanaandy

I've recently picked some up at the Whole Foods on the corner of 4th and Harrison in downtown SF. Not sure if that helps or not.

How do I figure out where they distribute to?

Where in Denver? Perhaps they can send me some directly. Everywhere I've called so far sells out in less than 24 hrs or so. And my party is three weeks from today (April 9th & 10th), but thanks for the offer. If I had time I would just drive the 9 hours to Denver..but alas, life as a grad students contains little extra time.

You could have gotten it from South Bay Drugs like yesterday, they are out now.

It is hard to get in Portland, so if that's your best bet you'll need some luck.

The problem is that they only ship it once a month and in quantities so that it sells quickly in each market (that's the point, it is always fresh). You need to find a place the sells it, ask when they get their shipment, and get down there that day.

It is easiest to get around the Bay Area, I would make a friend there if your really want one in three weeks.

Yeah, it was on the website earlier this week. I assume they sell it all in a day because of all the web business they do (internet orders are limited to 2).
