    Nope. It's not exported at all. Barely any leaves California: they have a distributor in Oregon, Colorado and Pennsylvania but that's it.

    Ive asked a guy on Instagram who "appears" to be in Ireland where he got his 2 bottles he posted up today.

    you can be guaranteed he, or someone he knows, brought it back in checked luggage from California.

    I've drank it twice in Ireland, once was indeed when a fella I knew brought some back, and the second time the owners of McHugh's off licence brought back 2 cases and did a tasting in their shops.

    I found it hard to get hold of in San Francisco never mind here. Sold out everywhere until the specific delivery day when it arrives.

    I was in a massive Off license in Colorado in August and could not get it :(
    A guess I will give up :mad:

    The main proper bar i was in there seems to have a dedicated sign up "we have NO pliny the elder" to avoid people constantly asking them.

    Do you use untappd?

    There is another service running off it called beerxchange
    http://www.beerxchange.com

    Pliny the younger and elder are popular on there, you might have luck with an exchange. There are also good tips in the forum's for delivery and customs.

    I use to use it but I post my beer pics on Instagram and find keeping both going provides more admin than the beer is worth :D

    Got this from Pliny

    Good Morning.
    Thank you for reaching out. Regretfully, Russian River does not distribute to Ireland. With the brewery operating at full capacity, RRBC is focused on fulfilling local demand here in Northern California.
    Please let us know if you have any questions.
    Cheers,
    -Benz

    It's a proper old school IPA, more resinous and absolutely not as hop forward as the more modern take on the style.

    An old school IPA is somthing like Harpoon IPA

    An old school IPA is something like cask Bass or Worthington E.

    Indeed. I've heard it said, and would well believe, that Orval is the nearest thing in flavour to a Victorian-era IPA that's commonly available.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 14,748 ✭✭✭✭Lovely Bloke


    Crooked Stave!

    I, of course, meant old school US IPA, circa 2008

    Was McEwans not the first to make IPA?

    Edit, Googled it and they were not. Had McEwans in the back of my head for some reason.

    Correct. McEwan's was not the first to make IPA. McEwan's was founded in 1856. The first known use of the phrase "India Pale Ale" is from 1829.

    Im sure it was to do with it being around in the 70's. It seems McEwans IPA back then provided inspiration to the modern IPA's/APA's brewed in the states.

    I need to read more :o

    Interesting! Anchor Liberty tends to be regarded as the first modern American IPA, but it tastes nothing like any IPA to me. Guess I need some vintage McEwan's to compare it with.

    been dying to try this for ages and had mates over there last september who got me a few bottles of pliney and sent me a couple of photos to show they were on the way...then they forgot them in the hotel.

    I know people say there's better out there but feck sake talk about a tease... :pac:

    Didn't Hodgson's produce the first Pale Ale?

    Nope, though that myth does get repeated a lot. Here's a list of the known knowns of IPA history.

    Hodgson, though not the first, had the market cornered for a while, until he got greedy and was undercut by Allsopp and Bass.

    They had be around along time before that ad stock pale ales


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 15,116 ✭✭✭✭RasTa


    Yeah my IPA book by Mitch Steele has them as the first to produce. Although I don't really care who did it.

    American homebrew culture invented this whole alternative history of beer that's just nonsense.
