It's that time of year again: Russian River is shipping out small batches of Pliny the Younger, the rare triple IPA with ridiculous ratings and a fervent cult following, to the handful of lucky establishments.
Westword's Beer Man will have the full scoop on that tomorrow -- and details on what he tasted over the weekend at Falling Rock Taphouse -- but in the meantime, Freshcraft, the downtown spot that stocks a serious beer list, got a five gallon keg -- and it's tapping it at 6 p.m. tonight.
If you're interested, get over there quick -- they start selling tickets for beers at 5:30 p.m., and they're sure to get snatched up quickly.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism.
