Pliny the Elder

Pliny the Elder and its elusive sister-brew Pliny the Younger are practically cult favorites amongst beer aficionados, and for good reason. Crack a bottle open, and a grassy-green, hop-forward aroma wafts out, followed by notes of orange zest and clove for a complex perfume; take a sip, and those flavors linger on the palate, with a bitter, almost tannic finish. While lovely sipped without food, we're even more eager to pair it with a rich and meaty dish like Cuban mojo pork or a platter of assorted charcuterie.
