Plan B(irthday)

It's that time of year again, I am another beer older and another Bud wiser, so I decided to celebrate my birthday at Plan B in Milford. Beer and burgers, how could I go wrong?

Our friendly server was Sam who, it just so happens, we had on a previous visit to Plan B.  She's fun and and we enjoyed having her deliver our beer and burgers once again.

The first order of business, literally, was getting beer of course. But I started the food fest off with hot wings, followed by a an "Italian Job" burger which was topped with pesto, mozzarella, roasted red peppers, and sundried tomatoes, and ending up with honey nut pie. Yum!

They had several new-to-me brews on tap. I made some good calls.  There were no disappointments in the bunch!

Toxic Sludge (7% ABV) by Blue Point  is a Black IPA / Cascadian Dark Ale. The best beer I chose! Mostly because the keg kicked and I got it for free. What's better than free beer? Nothing.  Seriously, I love this style. It has the nice bitter bite of hops with wonderful dark roasty malts and caramelized sugars. A nice balance of flavors and very drinkable.

Goat Boy (7.5% ABV) by Southern Tier is a Weizenbock. Sweet malt and breadiness along with some spice and funk complement this hearty wheat beer. It's tasty and surprisingly drinkable.

Road Warrior (9% ABV) by Green Flash is an imperial IPA. Very hoppy all around. There are sweet malty undertones to provide some balance but this brew is a hop head's beer. I love it!

La Ferme Urbaine (7.8% ABV) by Foolproof is a Farmhouse Ale. Sweetly malty and grainy and, true to the style, it's a little funky. There's a gentle dose of spicy hops to add character and balance. If you enjoy a good saison, you'll like this one.
