Where to Find 2022 Pliny the Younger Tappings in Colorado

Where to Find 2022 Pliny the Younger Tappings in Colorado

Pliny the Younger is BACK in Colorado! Despite Russian River Brewing announcing earlier this year that it would be delaying the release at their Santa Rosa and Windsor locations until March 25 as a result of COVID, it seems Colorado’s tappings are moving ahead as scheduled.

The highly sought-after Triple IPA featuring Amarillo, Azacca, Centennial, Chinook, Crystal, Idaho 7, Simcoe, Tomahawk and Warrior hops, will once again be available on draft in California, Oregon, Colorado, and Philadelphia this year. With bottle sales limited to Russian River’s two taproom locations.

Elite Brands, which distributes Russian River Brewing products in most of Colorado (but not Fort Collins), was kind enough to once again share the complete list of beer bars that will be carrying this much-balleyhoed release. Dates and times have not been announced for every location, however, we’ll be sure to keep updating that information in the coming days as information develops.

Each year, Natalie and Vinnie Cilurzo, the co-founders of Russian River, organize a fundraiser around the release of Pliny the Younger called “All Hopped Up For The Cure”, to benefit a local breast cancer support organization in their hometown of Santa Rosa, California.

For the seventh year in a row, Elite Brands will follow in the footsteps of Natalie and Vinny Cilurzo by raising funds and awareness towards breast cancer support with their version of the “All Hopped Up For A Cure” fundraiser. Once again, Elite Brands will be donating proceeds made from sales on Pliny the Younger to Sense of Security, a local breast cancer support organization, and they’ve asked retailers receiving Pliny the Younger to do the same. Last year’s fundraiser brought in $9,000 to ultimately help people living with breast cancer and experiencing financial hardship.

Current locations are final, and we’ll have more information shortly on release dates, times, and ticketing info shortly from the following accounts, so be sure to bookmark this page and check back over the next two weeks. Here’s what we know thus far:

    Anyone know the reason behind the recent lack of distro to Fort Collins, except for the sours, and when we might see RR up here again?
