The San Francisco Chronicle reported on Monday where one might find Pliny the Younger in San Francisco. As the article states, people wait, sometimes overnight, to get the first taste of this rare artisan brew from Russian River Brewing Company.

We headed to Monk’s Kettle in the Mission that was on the list. A sign on the door said “Pliny the Younger has left the building”. Darn! So, back to the list and on to Mission Bowling Club.

The Ever-Changing Beer List

As you can see, Mission Bowling Club is a lively spot after work. They have a happy hour that boasts their great looking burger, touted to be one of the best in town. I’ll be back for that!!

Amy, the manager, was told we were looking for Pliny the Younger. She came to our table to chat about the beer, their restaurant, and their new chef. Unfortunately, Pliny the Younger won’t be at Mission Bowling Club until one day next week, and they won’t get notice until the day before. You can follow them on Facebook to find out. Fingers crossed.

So, we decided to try a few special drafts. The guys at Anchor Steam are brewing up a storm and had a really tasty lager named California Lager. It has a stronger taste than your normal lager, but still light and refreshing. And since Pliny the Younger hadn’t yet entered the building, we decided to go for the Blind Pig from Russion River Brewing Co. Wow! What a nice, strong taste – not a lager and not an ale but more of a combo.
