A wee bit of a hijack here: how does someone from San Diego know about Pliny the Younger? People up here go nuts for it's once a year release (last Friday).


Drive on down Jingleheimer. A cask gets tapped Sat. @ 4pm! Drooool!!

Russian River distributes Pliny all over the country... Damnation, too... and Temptation, Consecration, a couple others.

I can get them easily here in Denver, but I miss Santa Rosa. Not only for Russian River, but also that restaurant Flavor, with all the Moonlight beers on tap. Damn, I miss Moonlight beer. And then, of course the Sweet Spot with all the Lagunitas on tap, Third Street Aleworks, Bear Republic up in Healdsburg... oh great, now I'm gettin' all homesick. Thanks a lot.

I'm gonna go downtown this afternoon to Great Divide and drown my sorrows.




I had no idea that they distributed that far; Good for them. Moonlight's Death and Taxes is by far my favorite beer. It's been really fun to be a short bike ride from all of these great beer dispensaries. : ) Anyhow, if you're ever back in Santa Rosa....

Woo hoo! Let me grab my board, too!

I rode my bike by the brewery on Thursday and there was still a line outside. Grrrr. Last year, everyone filled up growlers and the beer was gone within seconds. Apparently, some folks were selling them on ebay. Only pints this year.

Good thing I stopped by Falling Rock last night and learned that the Younger will be making it's appearance some time next week. WOO-HOO.

And, I kinda mis-spoke earlier about being able to "easily" get the Pliny... at that point, I had read the initial post too fast and thought you were talking about the Elder, which is really easy to get around here. The Younger, though, of course, is available for only about the half hour it's on before it's all sucked dry. Or sooner. Last year, FR's two kegs blew in a whopping 20 minutes. Craziness.

while not Tiki, I'm fond of Kona's beers. They're Hawaiian, like Primo.

San Miguel,because it goes with a Pacific island lifestyle. Especially on days you're out of Tanduay.

Now it's official: San Miguel is the Official Imported Beer of Tiki(R). That's a great little ad, where did you find it?

Now to find the Official Domestic Beer of Tiki(R).

Sometimes I think it is where and how the beer is served that can make it Tiki. Take Schlitz for instance, not a Tiki beer in any-body's eyes. But, when served like this, it evokes a certain South Sea splendor.



Or Miller, you know, the High Life. When served by a young pretty urbanite with a backdrop of PNG primitive art it screams TIKI!

DC, I was thinking about the "Champagne of Beers" & Schlitz. Those are the beers from the era of when tiki was booming. I would love to know what regional beers were served in old tiki establishment. Like Minhas for instance. I wonder if The Fireside serve Minhas.

Actually, that carving looks like a Kanak doorpost carving from New Caledonia. Apart from the bright red paint, it looks authentic too. Great find!
