Here’s some serious news. The first-ever Pliny the Elder in bottles is in the fermenter. Natalie Cilurzo in her blog posted tonight says her husband Vinnie, with her hepl and help from some visiting brewers brewed their first batch destined for bottles and I guess, kegs, this weekend.
Today, Saturday, I decided to forego Boonville to help Vinnie brew the first batch of Pliny the Elder! We don’t brew together anymore, now that we are business partners. So today was a very special day for me! Thank you so much to Todd and Mike for helping with today’s brew. And thank you to the 15 or so staff members who represented us in Boonville and had the privelege of answering the “Where’s Vinnie?” question all day! For the record, Vinnie was with me brewing more Pliny!
Wow and double wow. Can’t wait to fill my fridge.
