Hello to all,

Not sure if this is against the rules because it's commercial beer, I apologize if it's not.

Unfortunately I am on the other side of the country from Russian River and getting a Pliny is pretty much impossible around here, hell we JUST got Stone to distribute here. On that note, I have been blowing paychecks on stone products as of late but I am terribly intrigued by this mythical Pliny the Elder I hear so much about. There are some craft and international stores here that I could pickup something for someone and cross ship if they would be every so gracious to ship me a bottle of this beer of the gods.

Anyone willing to help a fellow hop head out?

The clone is very close to the original. There are some sites online that ship beer as well.
