Pliny beer

Marin County Loves Pliny the Elder!

We have a new favorite beer at Bungalow 44 in Mill Valley, CA that nobody can get enough of and we know why. It’s called Pliny the Elder, a delicious Double Indian Pale Ale from Russian River Brewing and Marin County loves Pliny! 

Pliny the Elder is robust and well balanced with malt, hops, and alcohol, slightly bitter with a fresh hop aroma of floral, citrus and pine. It is best enjoyed FRESH and that is why they make it in a limited supply. They actually put the bottling date on each bottle. It is an insanely drinkable and balanced and this sets it apart from the other imperial IPA’s and we absolutely agree. Don’t forget about our fantastic  selection of crafty specialty cocktails that are sure to make you smile.

It’s namesake is the Roman naturalist, scholar, historian, traveler, officer, and writer. Pliny and his contemporaries created the botanical name for hops, “lupus Salictarius”, meaning wolf among scrubs.”and who some folks say was one of the first people to write about hops. Pliny the Elder was immortalized by his nephew, Pliny the Younger, who wrote about his uncle succumbing to ash and smoke during the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A.D. while rescuing people. Cheers to the scholar, historian, officer, writer, and Roman Naturalist- Pliny the Elder!
