Description: Pliny the Elder was one of the first commercially brewed Double IPAs created by Vinnie in 1999 while the brewery was still owned by Korbel Winery. In 2020, we brewed Pliny for President by taking the original recipe and adding a 2 step double dry-hop (DDH) process. This beer was a huge hit with not only beer enthusiasts but the entire RRBC crew! So we decided to bring it back in 2021 with DDH Pliny the Elder. The original Pliny and DDH Pliny both have the same hop bill, while the amount of dry hops is roughly doubled in the DDH Pliny. The original Pliny is dry-hopped on day 7 with about 2 pounds per barrel, and DDH Pliny is dry-hopped on day 1 and again on day 6 for a total of about 4 pounds per barrel. This double dry-hopping process adds even more flavor, complexity, hop aroma, and freshness to the beer.
