Once again "Natty Light" is overlooked--like me every year in 'People's Sexiest Man' issue

I believe this contestant received bonus points for the name:
The Bay Area has a plethora of brewing companies churning out some of the best beers in the country, but one lucky beer was given top honors when Beer Advocate deemed it the best in the world. Russian River Brewing Company's Pliny the Younger sends beer lovers to bars like bees to honey, all because it currently holds the top spot at the user-drive review site.
I guess it edged out the similarly themed but less-lyrically pleasant "Pitt, the Elder".

Here is the famous painting of Pliny the Younger and Pliny the Elder, the latter watching Vesuvius erupt and being inspired to invent the all-you-can-eat "Indian Restaurant Lunch Buffet".

It really sucked being Pliny the Tweener - never any recognition.
