Looking for Pliny the Elder beer-Berkeley/Oak

I need to grab a 6 pack for a bday gift. Any ideas where I can find some?

  1. I'd call Beer Revolution and Trappist.

    1. got some at whole foods market somewheres. probably all whole foods have them.
      oaktown has one near the lake. berkeley's at 3000 telegraph.

        1. Of course LEDGERS is the standard, but I recently saw some pretty interesting beers at STAR MARKET. I was neither actively looking for nor passively noticed the ELDER PLINEY, but it's worth a phone call if Plan A and B fall though, or they are closer.

          1. The Russian River website (they are the brewers) list these Berkeley/Oakland dealers who (should) stock it:
            Who knows how up to date their list is??? These are retailers and eateries:
