I like the text around the label

IIRC, Kunda was the distributor that brought the RR product into PA...now that they have been consumed by Origlio Beverage, IDK what that will mean for future availability. There has already been some impact on other Kunda brands from what I understand.

When I start seeing these pop up around the local beer shops, I will be willing to ship some out. I'll PM those that post that they are interested.

So this is the first time bottling the stuff ever? I have heard good things and a good friend of mine is heading to CA next week. Might see if she can find a bottle or two to bring back. =D

Got an email reply from Vinnie this am that said that bottles will be shipped to Socal starting the first week of Aug.

The bummer at this point is that there are only about twenty Stone accounts that will get some and it will be limited at that.

I have a mail over to Greg at Stone right now to try and get an idea as to what acccount near me will be getting it.

"DOES NOT IMPROVE WITH AGE! HOPPY BEERS ARE NOT MEANT TO BE AGED!"
"AGE YOUR CHEESE, NOT YOUR PLINY!"
I agree.




"AGES WELL"
I disagree.

Well 120min is also over 20% alcohol and the hops aren't really the star of the show, so it's a bit of a different story. Plus it sucks whether it is fresh or not, so who cares.

If anyone does get some bottles of this I would totally be down for a trade or I can just pay you if you want.

Well I went to my local (good) beer bar/store, and they had a bunch of cases of Blind Pig IPA. The owner said he isn't sure when, but they should be getting the Pliny in sometime soon.
