    People lined up overnight – as they do every first Friday in February – to get their hands on Pliny the Younger, a famous beer brewed by Santa Rosa-based Russian River Brewing Company. The popular beverage is served on-tap, for only two weeks a year, and inspires beer lovers to drive for hours to get their hands on it. (Published Friday, Feb. 3, 2017)

    As is annual tradition at this time of year, throngs of people waited outside the Russian River Brewing Co. in Santa Rosa Friday morning just to get their hands on "Pliny the Younger,” a limited-edition beer that’s sold for only two weeks in downtown Santa Rosa and a few select spots.

    Some say the triple India Pale Ale is the best beer in America. It certainly ranks high on a number of beer websites.

    “Pliny the Elder,” Russian River’s less-potent IPA, is sold year-round and is much easier to come by.

    Sales end Feb. 16.
