Well the craft beer world had its own Navin R. Johnson moment this week. The folks at Merriam-Webster released the list of "new" words added to their Collegiate Dictionary. Among the new entries, "craft beer."
- craft beer n (1986) : a specialty beer produced in limited quantities : microbrew
- gastropub n (1996) : a pub, bar, or tavern that also offers meals of high quality
- man cave n (1992) : a room or space (as in a basement) designed according to the taste of the man of the house to be used as his personal area for hobbies and leisure activities
To use another "new word," is this a game changer?
- game changer n (1993) : a newly introduced element or factor that changes an existing situation or activity in a significant way
