Schooner n.--a large beer glass, usually holding a pint. That's what Webster's New World College Dictionary would have you believe, but belly up to the bar at the Piper Pub and Grill and you'll get an education. Quick-like. The Piper's innocuous-sounding "schooner" (you know, like a small ship) has more in common with an oil tanker, but full of beer. Lifting the goblet alone is enough to give you a workout--add 32 ounces of brew, and you're raising that bowl of beer to your lips with two hands like some kind of Viking warlord. 150 N. Eighth St., Boise, 208-343-2444, thepiperpub.com.
