Pliny The Elder

Pliny The Elder, originally uploaded by freeloosedirt.

If I could only drink one beer from now on, this would be it. It is named for the Early Roman Empire author, naturalist, philosopher and naval officer. PtE developed the first botanical name for Hops and died trying to rescue friends and family during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius.
