Please join us for our annual Russian River Brewing Company PLINY THE YOUNGER Mad Monday.
We will once again be raising money for Alex's Lemonade Stand. I have set an extremely high goal of $25,000 for this one-day event. Remember that all sales are CASH ONLY! 100% of the money from our draft beer will be donated directly to Alex's. Rare beers to be raffled with 100% of those funds going directly to the charity. C'mon Philly - let's show 'em what this great city is made of...give me all your money & I'll give it all to this very worthy charity.
Russian River Pliny The Younger (CA) This is the original Triple IPA, and this one was not a mistake. Vinnie just wanted to see how far he could push the envelope. 10.5%abv
Russian River Pliney The Elder (CA) This is the original Double IPA, made by mistake, natch. More hops balanced by bigger malt. Aromas of grapefruit dominate. Finishes surprisingly dry, yet not too bitter. 8%abv
Russian River Consecration (CA) Strong brown ale aged in a cabernet sauvignon barrel (Silver Oak) for six months with fresh currants The wine, oak and currants are well integrated in this stunning beer. 10.5%abv
Russian River Damnation (CA) Vinnie’s take on a Belgian strong blonde ale obviously influenced by Duvel. Great aromas of banana and pear. Medium body with flavors of pale roasted malt and spice from the hops. Lots of hops in the finish give it a nice bitterness and a crisp, dry finish. 7.75%abv
B. United Zymatore: (Austria) Brauerei Hofstetten Granit Bock aged in Pinot Noir / Whisky / Red Zinfadel barrels. This is a “Stein” beer, where they heat blocks of granite until white hot and add to the wort. This caramelizes much of the sugar present.
Freigeist Salzspeicher Cherry Sauer Porter (Germany) – a blend of a sour German porter and an English-Style porter with fresh sour cherries added. 6%abv
Tilquin Gueuze draft (Belgium) Pierre Tilquin is Belgium’s newest lambic blender. Great balance to this oaky, sour Gueuze. 4.5%abv
Russian River Blind Pig IPA(CA) Perhaps my favorite West Coast IPA. Solid hop aromas and finish backed up by the perfect balance of malt. 6.1%abv.
Russian River Supplication (CA) Brown ale aged in french oak pinot noir barrels for different periods of time. Vinnie then blends these barrels into this magic elixir. He adds fresh sour cherries and three “wild” yeast strains: brett, lacto & pedio I get malt, oak, wine, cherries, and a subtle pineapple note from the brett. 7.2%abv.
Russian River Temptation (CA) Blond Ale aged in french oak chardonnay barrels for twelve months. Vinnie adds his house strain of brettanomyces that adds a sour component and a bit of fruitiness. 7.2.5%abv
Allagash PNC Broken Elevator (Maine) I made this with Jason Perkins and my PNC mates from Falling Rock in Denver, Toronado in San Francisco, and Brouwer's Café in Seattle
DeMolen Cease & Desist (Netherlands). It’s a Russian Imperial Stout with a ton of dark roasted malt. Super full body. Dark as a moonless night. Notes of bittersweet chocolate & dark fruit. This is oh so very good. 10% abv
DeMolen Hel & Verdoemenis (Netherlands) made w/english brown specialty malt & black malt. Imperial Stout. Roasty & complex. 10%abv
De Molen Hemel & Aarde (Netherlands). (Heaven & Earth) Imperial Stout made with peated malt from Bruichladdish distillery. Huge peat aroma with flavor notes of licorice and bittersweet chocolate. 10% abv
Freigeist / Trois Dames Smuggler’s Gose (Germany/Switzerland) – collaboration to produce a Gose. Wheat beer with salt, herbs & lactic acid. 5%abv
Hof Ten Dormaal Project 2013 Strong Blonde Ale (Belgium)
HTD Project #7 Aged in a Bruichladdich barrel
HTD Project #8 Aged in Port Charlotte Whisky barrel
HTD Project #5 Only 26 kegs of this rariety. Aged in a Moscatel barrel

I was at Brasserie Cantillon a couple of weeks ago and picked up a Magnum of Cantillon Gueuze. I'll dig around my basement, dust off some cobwebs to see what additional Cantillons I can put together for a raffle. As with our draft beer sale for this event, 100% of the Raffle money will go directly to Alex's Lemonade Stand. I'll put together a couple of additional raffles.

Help us help these cancer-stricken children and their families. It's a very worthy cause and you get to drink amazing beer. How often do you get to feel aultruistic when you're out drinking beer?
Please remember this is a CASH ONLY event. Fergie & I pay for all this beer (and these are very expensive beers); We pay our coworkers; We offer extremely rare beers for the raffles; donate all potential profits; and pay for all the extras involved. Our beer costs alone are over $4,000. We pay for everything and still donate 100% of the day's take to Alex's Lemonade Stand. So, please, please, please, bring lots of cash with you! Help us reach our goal of $25,000.00.
Be generous to the charity and to our servers.
