With 100 rating on both Beer Advocate and Rate Beer, Pliny the Younger is one of the best beers in the world. It’s not easy to get your lips on though, and this mini-documentary shows why that is.
Normally I wouldn’t post a twelve minute video, but if any beer deserved to blather for that long it’s Pliny the Younger. Plus it’s a Monday and a holiday, so it’s not as if you’re going to actually be working.
Like Westvleteren 12 and Three Floyd’s Dark Lord, Pliny the Younger moved far beyond just a beer. There is so much pomp and circumstance surrounding the brew that you’d think it would be impossible to live up to the hype. I haven’t made the pilgrimage to Santa…whatever, so I unfortunately can’t verify if it does or not. I can say that Elder is incredible, so if Younger is better it must be mind-blowing. I guess I’ll just have to drown my sorrows in Bell’s Hopslam.
