Ephraim Puffer's 1756 Estate Inventory, Part I

This is part of the inventory of the estate of Ephraim Puffer filed by his wife in 1756. I can read most of it and will be posting a transcription of it online.
Inventory of Estate of Ephraim Puffer, Middlesex County, Mass., Probate file 18232, filed by Mary Puffer in December 1756.

There are a few things I can't quite make out--or would like suggestions on. Those items are in the colored boxes. I have ideas about those things, but am interested in reader thoughts.

I'm pretty certain the blue box isn't a "Sip of beer."

The handwriting is fairly easy to read compared to other documents in this file.
