DrinkCraftBeer.com: Mildly obsessed, so you don't have to be.
I started DrinkCraftBeer.com in the beginning of 2006 with my Co-Founder to advance the state of Craft Beer in our country and to enhance it's acceptance in the eyes of the mainstream consumer. Different from many beer sites that focus on the more extreme beer enthusiast, out target is the casual drinker who has a taste for better food and drink. Our goal is to push craft beer as a desirable accompaniment to food or by itself, instead of just a game day swill.
We do regular beer tastings in the Boston area at finer liquor stores, and work with local companies to provide beer pairing events. For example, in February 2008 we worked with local Somerville chocolate makers Taza to pair craft beer with their offerings. Our event drew an estimated 125 people and sold hundreds of dollars in merchandise in 2 hours.
Both Founders of DrinkCraftBeer.com come from a marketing background, having worked in both internet and event marketing for years.

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."
Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)
The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
Within each of us are two selves, suggests David Brooks in this meditative short talk: the self who craves success, who builds a résumé, and the self who seeks connection, community, love -- the values that make for a great eulogy. (Joseph Soloveitchik has called these selves "Adam I" and "Adam II.") Brooks asks: Can we balance these two selves?
