Pliny the Younger season is almost upon us again. But if you can’t wait for the day or just don’t posses the sea legs to stand in a line for the privilege to sip an extolled, once-a-year brew, you may want to check in with Tony’s Darts Away this Tuesday. That night, the Burbank beer bar is opening its arms to Redland’s esteemed aviation-themed Hangar 24, which will take command of seven taps until closing. In addition to its readily available Orange Wheat, Chocolate Porter, and Alt Bier, the beer-maker will also have kegs of its rare Pugachev’s Cobra. Named for an acrobatic aviation stunt that is itself dubbed after an18th-century Cossack invader, an eight-month bourbon barrel-aged Russian Imperial Stout that comes in at 16.5% ABV and only rears its end in limited quantities every winter. Opening at 5:00 P.M. that evening, Tony’s will offer Hangar’s beers at $5.50-6.50 per glass, as well as flights of the ales.
