Ever since I read about Strong Place in the New York Times back in August I have wanted to go. Finally, seven months later, Sarah and I met our friend Alison there. The food was solid and the beer selection was great. The beer list had a wide variety with plenty of local choices. I started off with a Sixpoint TimeOut for a Porter which is a flavorful session porter.
The “wow” moment of the night for me was when I ate my beef short-rib burger topped with maytag blue cheese while drinking Southampton Biere de Mars. The cheese and the beer perfectly complemented each other’s funkiness. I feel my pairing abilities have improved since my last attempt (even if this was a slightly obvious pairing).
