(By Andrea Estes, Globe Staff) The new owners of the Boston Red Sox have greatly expanded alcohol sales at Fenway Park, adding at least 16 new stands where beer is sold since taking over in 2001, according to the city licensing board. The team has also increased by a third the size of beer cups, from 12 ounces to 16 ounces. The volume of beer sold at Fenway last year jumped roughly 20 percent from the year before, according to information provided by the Red Sox.


Now I have to ask, is this the MOST important story in Boston today?

Seriously though, Most team I know serve 16 oz beers of course I am only familiar with Chicago, but 12 OZ beers just don't cut it at ball games.
