The brewmaster said "mouthfeel" and I knew I was in over my head. This was some years ago, surrounded by fellow beerophiles in the belly of the beast at the Sam Adams brewery in Boston. Sam's top hop-ologists did their experiments here, a lab of sorts to concoct the brewery's next Big Thing. You'll see it on their commercials, containing large copper kettles that house the sweet liquid gold for America's next mass-produced “craft” beer. We learned how to sample beer the right way: color, nose (oenophiles will know this term already, but I came to know it as “smell”)

It wasn't the Slurpees residents were protesting Tuesday night on a proposed 7-Eleven that would sell alcohol mere blocks from an existing franchise. Concerned about the high concentration of businesses that already sell alcohol in the neighborhood and the potential of attracting noise and crime, residents testified against allowing the convenience store to move in during an appeals hearing before the City Council, which eventually voted 3 to 2 to allow the store.
