Was pointed out to me at a party last week that the men the beers are named after are known as ’Pliny’ to historians (with the short ’I’ as in ’sit’). My friends and I have always said ’Pliny’ with the long I of ’kite’.

What say you?

Most everyone out here uses the long I, but the short I was correct if I remember pronunciation from my collage Philosophy class!

If you use the short i you have to continue speaking with a British accent.
