Last I heard, distro is going to be very limited and they will not even be supplying current states they have a footprint in.

From RR web site:
Pliny the Elder & Blind Pig IPA Bottled
Well, we finally have run every piece of equipment in the new brewery, actually, we bottled Damnation a couple of weeks ago on our new (used) filler at the new brewery, but, things get a lot more exciting when you fill bottles with carbonated beer! Anyway, we bottle Blind Pig IPA yesterday, July 9th and Pliny the Elder today, July 10th. All in all things went pretty good- Thanks to Ron Allen for helping us get the used line up and running!

They are both being bottled in a 16.9 ounce (500 ml) crown finish bottle and are being sold as a single bottle.

Both runs were somewhat limited as we were just getting our feet wet. These first bottles will only be available in the North Bay and Bay Area and deliveries started yesterday and today. We will ship bottles of Blind Pig IPA to SoCal next week with Pliny the Elder bottles hitting our SoCal distributor Stone Brewing the second week of August.

We’ll ship a small shipment of beer to Portland for a end of July release (more on that next week) though, there will be no Pliny the Elder bottles on this shipment, sorry. In August we’ll get some beer to Seattle and Denver, more on that down the line as well.

That’s it for now, thanks for your support!

Any HBT peeps in these areas want to ship me a Pliny? I'll happily pay a (reasonable) premium over your cost and cover all the shipping. or swap something from the Chicago area.

As long as the kegs keep trickling into the Phily area, I won't complain.

Already emailed Matt (Capone's) to see if it is on his radar yet.

Is there any pics of it in a bottle yet?
