More Russian River beers heading to Colorado

Russian River Brewing CompanyGood news came out of California this week as the Russian River Brewing Company announced that it will be releasing shipments of two additional beers to Colorado and other limited states soon. Colorado - get ready for some Consecration and Pliny the Younger!

Consecration is a wonderful wild funky ale that is brewed with currants and is aged for 9 months in oak barrels. I had a taste or two of that at the 2008 GABF this year and absolutely loved it. Pliny the Younger is called a triple IPA and is hopped three separate times to give it gobs of IBUs. If you like Pliny the Elder, you'll want to try this beer.

Read the blog excerpt from Vinnie and Natalie Cilurzo, owners of Russian River, below for details of the release.

Russian River Consecration"Consecration will be released on February 2nd on draught and in 750ml bottles at our pub and limited distribution in No. California. Starting that week, we will also distribute bottles and kegs to Southern California, Washington, Oregon, Colorado, and Philadelphia. We can’t tell you exactly where it will be, but it will be extremely limited. Yummy!

Russian River Pliny the YoungerPliny the Younger will also be released on February 2nd on draft only. It will be available at our pub, select accounts in the Bay Area, Southern California, Washington, Oregon, Colorado, and Philadelphia. This beer is not bottled but is available for purchase in 1/2 gallon growlers at our pub ONLY. And we do not ship growlers. This beer may only be consumed at our pub, from growlers purchased at our pub, or by the glass at one of our accounts in the aforementioned markets."

Colorado RR lovers will be able to take Consecration home in bottles but you'll have to go to select beer destinations, like Falling Rock Tap House in Denver, to get a glass of Pliny the Younger. Still, it's good news all around for Colorado beer lovers.
