We aren't the first to comment on this, but the design of Pliny the Younger uses one of the most loathed fonts in the universe.
We suppose it's to pose a childlike contrast with the Elder, but "triple IPA" is not for kids! (Nor for us, either - it's the Arnold Schwarzenegger of IPAs, hypertrophied and overwrought for our palate. But it has its fans!)
If you're-a hankering for either of the Plinys or other sought-after beers from Russian River, Ventis has you covered. (Though we think they are pressing the hype and cult of exclusivity a wee bit too far, hint, hint!)
It's great to see Eat Salem with more beer! Since we regularly get distracted with our historical divagations, we postponed a note on Adam's Rib new taproom - and a tip of the pint to Eat Salem for the scoop. (Though the post disappeared for a while, now it seems to be back.)
In any event, check out the new beer tapitude at the Rib!
Update! Venti's is offering french press dry hopping for $10. Several different kinds of hops are available, so you can go from piney to floral to citrusy as you please. Get a group of friends! It may not be something to do regularly, but as a bit of tableside pub theatre, and a way to explore the taste of different hops, it's a terrific gustatory game.
