THE BOSTON GLOBE TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 1996 Brewers heady over law Vt. measure lets customers buy small samplers of beer New heart puts youth back on the slopes implanted in his chest, Kory would die within 12 hours. The pump saved his life, but left Kory bedridden for two months. The thought of snow-boarding kept him smiling and inspired during that time. "There was never a time that I thought I wouldn't get back on the slopes," Kory said.

About six months after receiving the pump, and just days before he was scheduled to take his first trip back to Ski Sundown, Kory got the call he had been waiting for. "They said the new heart was already cross-matched and told me to come down as quick as I could," Kory said. Two hours after receiving his new heart, Kory lay in the recovery room at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center in New York and, with a breathing tube down his throat, scrawled his first message to, his parents. "I want to go snowboarding," he wrote. Kory is almost fully recovered but must take medication to guard against his body rejecting the new heart.

"is an important recognition that the old rules didn't fit the new industry." Ken Strong, owner of The Shed Restaurant and Brewery in Stowe, started pushing for the new law last year. He said the change will free up the staffs time they now have to describe the various brews to customers and allow his restaurant to charge for the samples instead of giving away tastes. "Add up the two, three, four ounces here and there, you're giving away a lot of beer which you could be selling," said Strong. Brewers like the message that samples seem to convey. "It's handcrafted, distinctive," said Strong.

"Small samples of anything, perfume or apple juice or whatever, the implication is it's a special product and the person is proud of it." In fact, the Shed had special taster trays made from ski tips to serve the samples. At $4.95 each, Strong said the distinctive sampler is a hit. "It's been great," he said. "It's like island drinks. You walk across the room with a ski of beer, and they say, Wow, what's Current law forbids a bar from selling more than one drink per customer at a time.

But the new law allows the brew-pubs establishments with a first-class liquor license that also brew their own beer to sell up to eight small samples at a time. It's a small change that means a great deal to Vermont's growing micro-brewery business. "You're seeing this growth of these wonderful little beer pubs," said Sen. Susan Bartlett (D-La-moille), one of the law's sponsors. And just as California is known for its wine country and renowned for tastings at wineries Vermont's brew industry can lure tourists.

"There are people who structure their vacations around the pubs," said Sen. Richard McCormack, another sponsor of the law. But for brewers like Wilson, it's more than that "It's really neat to be able to see the difference in color and clarity," he said, pouring out three samples. Customers might want the Old Slipperyskin India Pale Ale (named after a giant bear who terrorized the early settlers of Vermont), or Dr. Bowles' Honey Elixir.

They might want Fuggle Barleycorn (fuggle is a hop), or Jasper Murdock's Extra Special Bitter. That's a far cry from the light lagers such as Budweiser aud Miller. As the names imply, "These beers are so different," Wilson said. ASSOCIATED PRESS BURLINGTON, Conn. A 17-year-old heart transplant recipient nicknamed "The Snowboard Kid" is back on the slopes just two months after surgery.

"My prayers were answered this winter. I got a new heart and 5 feet of snow," said Kory Bog-larski, a snowboarder and a junior at St. Paul Catholic High School in Bristol. In March, a doctor detected a slight murmur in Kory's heart. X-rays later showed that his heart had become enlarged because of a condition known as programmed cell death.

"Kory was born with a gene that told his heart to stop working after 16 or 17 years," said Dr. Mehmer Oz, who performed the heart transplant surgery. Kory's name was placed on a waiting list for a new heart, but things got worse. "His heart just had become so enlarged that he was going into complete failure," said Peg Bog-larsM, Kory's stepmother. Doctors told the family that without the aid of an experimental pump New England News Brief 11 hurt as driver flees police in R.I.

PROVIDENCE A police chase on Interstate 95 early yesterday left 11 people with minor injuries from a series of collisions caused by the fleeing Boston driver.

Mass. man dies in Virgin Islands CHARLOTTE AMALIE, US Vir, gin Islands A 31-year-old Massachusetts native died Sunday after he was hit by a boat propeller while diving off Coki Point, a popular diving spot in the northern part of the island. Joseph Belanger, a construction worker originally from North Andover, was apparently run over by the boat and died instantly. Belanger had been diving near the reef with friends.

(AP) Fire in Haverhill By Susan Allen ASSOCIATED PRESS NORWICH, Vt. Tim Wilson's Whistling Pig Red Ale is his best seller, but his Mother Walker's Mild and his Raspberry Stout are also popular at the Norwich Inn's bar. His patrons, who down his brew under a sign declaring "Beer So Much More Than Just A Breakfast Drink," want to sample the wares. They're curious which is better, O.B. Joyful (Wilson's palest ale) or Second Wind Oatmeal Stout (black ale).

Now Wilson can help them decide. A new law, signed by the governor just last week, allows brewers like Wilson to sell eight small samplers of their beers and give customers their choice of brews. "They'd like to be able to try each to make a decision as to which they want," said the burly former banker who began brewing 15-gallon batches of beer as a hobby in 1988. Now he brews about 100 barrels a year in shiny silver vats at the inn, owned by his wife, Sally. Customers can be particular about their ale, said Sally Wilson.

The bar's tap serves three beers each night; sometimes, she said, customers call to see what's on tap. The new law, Tim Wilson said, A II rj Dallas Fort Worth WJlii 1 A ijJJl ill.
