Default Pliny the Elder swap for East Coast brews

I've been wanting to try Pliny the Elder for a long time but haven't had the opportunity. Is there any West Coasters that might want to swap a couple bottles of Pliny the Elder for something available here on the East Coast,
like Troegs, Souther Tier, Weyerbacher, etc, whatever might suit your needs.

Help a hophead out.

PM to set something up.

mega...you're close to Philly. Check this link out.
http://www.beermenus.com/philadelphia
Search by "pliny the elder" regularly and you can see who in the Philly area has Pliny available. Right now as i type this a pub in Zieglersville has it on tap for $5 a glass. Monks also frequently has it as well, but they sell out fast.

Other than that, good luck with your search.

Ahh... I thought this was going to be a thread from someone from CA looking to trade some Pliney for East coast beer.

Me too.

I would love to try it as well. Cigar City distributes to my area, which I know is hard to find for people in other regions.

Yea, unfortunatly, I'm 15min from the beach so all the Philly locations are
too far to sample and drive home, cause you can't just have one.

I got a couple bottles of Pliny sitting around - they were bottled in July and have been sitting in my refridge since. If anyone wants em i'd do a trade.

My local bottle shop keeps Pliny in the back, reserved for the regular patrons. I understand there is a waiting list 20 deep for stores that want it.

I wonder how long before the price of this stuff skyrockets like a fancy wine.

That Farmers Harvest? There are a couple others close by that usually have it but I know they usually have some good stuff hidden in back for the regulars.
