NEWS24/680 Beer Correspondent (we just created the position) Dave Loomis travelled to Santa Rosa and the Russian River Brewery Friday to talk with the faithful who flew in from all over the country to sample what many say is the best beer of its kind.
A cult favorite among beer lovers, the beer has been released on the first Friday in February, for just two weeks, for the past 12 years. The brewery releases a limited amount of the ultra-fresh, super hoppy and high-in-alcohol (10.25%) triple IPA and, as Dave found out, the lines were long and appreciative.
Joey and Nicole flew north to sample Pliny in a impromptu Valentine’s Day celebration. And then there was Scott Fortson from Georgia.
Some folks just really appreciate good beer…
