OK, what do the Russian River Brewing Company in Santa Rosa, CA and Monk's Cafe in Philadelphia have in common? Well, plenty, actually. Monk's is the ONLY outlet that features the Russian River Brewing Company east of the Mississippi River. That's it, no more, just the one! Now you may ask yourself why that is important? Well, Russian River is the one and only manufacturer of two brews: Pliny the Elder and Pliny the Younger. Today we set off in search of these brews (Pliny the Elder being the more likely) and all sorts of other things that will set us off on adventure.
Hang on, this is going to be fun!
