Blind Pig and Pliny the Elder are some amazing hoppy beers from Russian River Brewing, but what makes Pliny the Younger so special?

It’s only released once a year, and in short quantity.

Falling Rock Taphouse is our haven for tasting this sought-after brew. Final tappings (which started Wednesday) will be this Saturday and Sunday, and by ticket only. Details on how to get this golden ticket are explained below.

As if this weekend wasn’t exciting enough, it’s also our third anniversary here at the Wagon! It’s grown up so fast.

PJ Hoberman and some other fine folks brewed the tasty Circle the Wagons Saison with TRVE Brewing and released it Thursday. If you’re lucky, there might still be some left. Go get some, you’ll make us feel even more special. You can find it on tap at TRVE, Star Bar, Falling Rock, and Stapleton Tap House.

The celebrations continue Saturday when we venture out on a bar crawl starting at 2 p.m. Tag along with us, get a nifty wrist band that gets you discounts, and come hang out with us and meet some fun people!

Pliny the Younger is TAPPED!

Falling Rock Taphouse, Denver | 1 p.m.

It’s still here! If you want your taste of Pliny the Younger, here’s how to start: Falling Rock will be opening their doors at 11 a.m. both Saturday and Sunday and will be issuing out tickets. It’s one ticket per person, too, so if you’re not physically there, you can’t get a ticket. (Hint: some people get there as early as 9 a.m. to wait in line, it’s that intense). If you’re lucky enough to get the first color ticket, then you are guaranteed a glass of Pliny, so relax and find a table. The second color of ticket MAY get you a glass of Pliny. It’s a first-come-first-served kind of deal, guys.
