The folks over at Elite brands just informed me of some changes in the schedule. They were able to schedule a truck to pick up the beer 1 week earlier. So (just like before) IF everything goes well with the drive from Windsor, CA to Denver, CO we will be pouring PtY earlier than expected. We were also informed that we will have a bigger allocation so get ready. We will be keeping the 3 dates we already announced (which now are pretty definite now) and adding 2 more :
The first pouring will be on Saturday February 9th at 1pm (doors open at 11am)
The second pouring will on Sunday February 10th at 1pm (doors open at 11am)
The rest of the announced pours will still take place on Saturday February 16th, Sunday February 17th, & Saturday February 23rd. ALL tappings are at 1pm.
The doors to Falling Rock open at 11am. Just like we’ve done every year, we will be giving out tickets at the door for the beer, 1 person=1 ticket. If you wish to leave to go have breakfast/brunch somewhere, just return by 1pm, the tickets become void shortly after we do last call for Younger (usually about 1:20-1:30pm). When you get here & see the long line, just remember, unless the line stretches past the alleyway on 19th, it’s all good. When 1pm rolls around we will start serving the Pliny the Younger, if you are seated at a table, your server will bring it to you, no need to get in line. Just remember, if you get a ticket, there’s enough beer for you to get one so relax. Those that don’t have seats, just get in line at the bar, no need to get excited or rush, it usually takes us about 20-30 minutes to pour through the beer & we will give plenty of notice for last call for tickets. I know it might sound like a lot of rules/steps, but once you get here or have done it before, it’ll all make sense, it’s really simple, we just try to make it so that as many people can get the beer as possible.
Also, for the 4th year in a row, Elite Brands will be donating proceeds from the sale of Pliny the Younger to Sense of Security, a Colorado Non-Profit that assists families that are dealing with breast cancer. Each glass of PtY sold at Falling Rock will raise $3 for Sense of Security, each of the past 3 years, we have raised $3000/year here at Falling Rock.
As we find out more information, we will post it here on our website, Facebook & Twitter.
PLEASE DON’T CALL THE BAR
The Bartenders & Servers will not know any other information other than what is listed here. When we find out anything different, we will post it here. Calling the bar really ties up the phone line & interferes with our To Go food orders as well as us taking care of the customers we have in the building.
