Also grabbed a 750ml of Boulevard chocolate ale... I'll post up a review after I've tried it.

Thanks for posting this. Boulevard is spectacular and I hadn't seen the Chocolate yet.

I lucked in to one here in Austin at Specs. Think they're all out now.
I just checked ebay after reading your post and they're going for about $50 shipped, I'm thinking about flipping a few since they only cost me 13 bux a bottle.

So, The Falling Rock Tap House in Denver does have Pliney The Younger...

Sounds kinda painful just to get a beer
OK So here We Go…
the Kegs are arriving so Here’s the Schedule…
We will be tapping Pliny the Younger on Sunday, February 12th @1PM
Second Keg on Saturday February 18th @ 1pm
Last Keg on Saturday February 25th @5pm
We will open (as usual) at 11am each day. Tickets will be issued as people arrive that will allow you to purchase a beer,
this method seemed to de-stress the event last year so we’re going with that again.

Just cracked open the Boulevard chocolate ale, honestly I don't see what the hype is about. The chocolate flavor is really faint, almost has a sour after taste, smells nasty too.

^Young's is tasty but at 5% ABV I can hardly catch a buzz off of it.

But since I've been out in Cali I haven't had it. I think I'm gonna have to put it on my list.
Dude, Racer5 is on tap everywhere out here, and available in bottles everywhere else. I can probably name a half-dozen spots just in the TL that have it. Let me know if you want a list...or you can just cruise to the BevMo on Sutter and Van Ness and grab a couple cases.
Yeah man, I see it everywhere...I'm out in the East Bay, but thanks for the heads up while in the city. I plan on heading to BevMo tomorrow for some.

Thanks for the recommend on Boulevard - drinking the Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale now. Really solid beer.

Nice score!

I just saw that Burton Baton, and the damn store wanted $20 for the 4 pack. I got some other stuff instead, but not sure why. :ziggi:
