First off, I'll say it again, I love plan B. By far, the best local restaurant in West Hartford thanks to great beer, awesome bartenders and good food. After living here for 3 years, I'm heading back to Boston and I'll miss Plan B.
With that said, I feel totally robbed of the $25 I spent on a ticket (plus a tip) for the Earth Day cask event today.. .
The event was advertised as running from 2:00-6:00. $25 for dry hopped IPA cask (unitll it runs out and a buffet. I showed up at 3:55 and the Cask was gone. So what did I pay $25.00 for? Two -8oz glasses of Elm City lager! Boring, very boring for someone who came for a dry-hopped IPA on cask. I'm sorry but it's a very un-interesting beer. Not a bad beer just not noteworthy. After my second 8 oz glass, that keg ran out and there was no more beer included in my 25 buck ticket. No more beer included in the $25 price of the ticket. Really?
There was a buffet that was comparable to a free happy hour buffet. Not worth the rest of the 25 bucks.
I could have (and should have) just showed up without buying a ticket, had 2 Good beers, like the Lagunita's WTF and a Southern Tier Gemini and an appetizer and still be $5 to $10 ahead. Oh, and the beers would have been in bigger glasses.
It’s worth noting that someone I know had a little bit of the featured New England Brewing dry-hopped IPA left in their glass. They gave me a swig. It was awesome even if it was 50% backwash.
I'd love to see Plan B start stat to bring in casks on a regular basis. Just sell them by the glass...skip the ticket thing.
Hey NE Brewing, bring a couple more casks kegs next time. Please.
"tested" 585 different beers since 2008 and counting.
