Pliny the Elder and Bling Pig now in bottles

I was planning to post a simple link to Russian River's site announcing their latest news. Pliny the Elder and Blind Pig in bottles is something that fans of these beers have hoped and waited for a quite some time. With their new facility across town in Santa Rosa, this expanded production and bottling capacity dream is now reality. But, I see that Jay was on site and helping with the packaging. He took some great photos and you can find them over at his site. With his camera in tow, Jay brings great photojournalism to each event he attends and writes about. We likely won't be seeing these bottles on the East Coast for some yet unannounced period of time, so these will be going on my scavenger list of beers to find and bring home from California the next time I visit.

Checking on the LCB website shows that the folks from RR plan on bringing a couple more offerings than what I saw just a few weeks ago. It was always going to be in the fall when they showed up in bottles. It is a lot cheaper than kegs.

Either way, the rebranding to 'Bling Pig' for the burgeoning hip hop segment of craft brewing is sheer genius.

Couldn't have said it better myself (wait'll you see the google search traffic)
