Russian River’s seasonal release of Pliny the Younger when on tap at Hollingshead in Orange this morning at 10am. I pulled into the parking lot at about 10:05am only to witness a long line of people waiting to get into the sandwich shop. The line was out the door, down the walkway, and around the corner where it ended in front of the Staples office supply store.
This was drastically different than previous years. Yeah, the shop would get crowded, but a line out the door?! Although it’s a great beer, I didn’t have the patience to wait in a long line and maybe get a taste. Maybe next year.
