Russian River Pliny the Elder

WINDSOR, CALIFORNIA – A bit of history first: Vinnie Cilurzo brewed America's first Double IPA, named  "Inaugural Ale", back in 1994 at Blind Pig Brewing Co, Temecula, CA.  That operation closed a few years later. Then Vinnie was hired as the original and only head brewer at Korbel Champagnes Cellars' foray into brewing – Russian River Brewing Co. Vinnie and his wife, Natalie bought the brewery a few years later and opened their Santa Rosa location. The rest, as they say is history. Vinnie is the originator of this style and he still brews the best version – Pliny the Elder. Brewed with copious amounts of Amarillo, Centennial, CTZ, and Simcoe hops. Very hoppy, but not a hop bomb – the balance of the malt and hops is extraordinary. Super drinkable, but be careful…it is 8%abv. $8.50 PINT

Russian River/Monk's Café 25th Anniversary

Monk’s Café 25th Anniversary Collaboration with Russian River (CA) Tom flew to CA in June of 2021 to brew with Vinnie on the 5 BBL Windsor brew system. After primary fermentation, the beer was transferred to Hogshead oak barrels that had just been emptied of Sonambic – Vinnie’s spontaneously fermented homage to the Lambics brewed in Belgium. Tom flew back to California in December to assist in the blending of the beer we brewed in June. We used some of the Sonambic that was emptied from those Hogshead barrels. Blonde sour ale with notes of peach and pear. Soft, pillowy carbonation.  6%abv  $11

Threes Brewing Kicking & Screaming

NEW YORK – These folks brew amazing Lagers, Pilners in particular. This Pilsner was fermented in stainless steel, as normal. Then this liquid is lagered for an additional 30+ days in oak foeders. Aging in oak was a traditional method for 100 years befor they transitioned to stainless. Try this if you've never had a barrel aged Pilsner (if you've had this style before, then you know to order one). 5.2%abv  $8 Pint
