Mayor Menino Leaps to Defense of Boston Beer

The Denver Post reports that words were had between mayor Menino and Denver's mayor Michael Hancock over beer. That's right, the same guy who recently denounced claims that Boston was the drunkest city in the country ("I am the beast of this city and what I say goes. We are not the drunkest!") is now magnanimously defending local brews. “We have the best," Menino said, referring to Sam Adams and Harpoon breweries. He then called Colorado beer week and said "Uck."
