Pliny The Elder vs Heady Topper BLIND TASTE TEST
Russian River's "Pliny The Elder" and The Alchemist's "Heady Topper" are currently rated among the top beers in the world on the two most famous beer-rating websites. One is made on the West Coast, the other is brewed on the East Coast. Both are difficult to come by if you don't live in the immediate vicinity of the brewery. Chad, our "Social Media Strategist," was able to acquire several bottles/cans of each and decided to have a blind taste test featuring fellow ABC officer, Alex, and Ryan - an ABC member. And just to make things interesting, our off-camera steward brought a "wild card" beer that was of the double IPA style. Which beer would reign supreme is a blind taste test challenge - Pliny, Heady or a mystery beer?!?!
