Here's a little oyster and beer trivia to whet your appetite: In 1635 a travel guide written to encourage more visitors to the new colony said those that drink it were "healthfull, fresh, and lustie" - were they speaking of the pristine waters of Massachusetts? Or the beer? Early settlers drank beer in place of water. What was "small beer"? a) first brew of the seasons b) children's beer c) a half-pint, usually for women What's a "cicerone"?  a) a vessel for drinking beer, usually pewter b) a beer sommelier c) the casks settlers stored beer in
