Schooner size – A schooner, one of Australia’s most popular beer glass sizes, is the perfect choice for those who want to enjoy a refreshing beer without committing to a whole pint. With a capacity of 425 millilitres (or 15 fluid ounces), a schooner of beer strikes a balance between a smaller, more manageable size and a generous serving.

How many beers is in a schooner?
In my Brooklyn wanderings the other week, I came upon this sign outside a bar: I had encountered “schooner” as a portion size for beer in my recent Australia visit, but didn’t have a clear sense of what it meant, other than larger than the smallest size (called “pot,” as I recalled). And by the way, if you’re not from here, “Bud” is Budweiser, probably the most famous American beer.
I checked the OED, which told an interesting, somewhat complicated story. It gives a United State origin for “schooner” as a beer vessel, citing a definition in an 1879 edition of Webster’s dictionary: “A tall glass, used for lager-beer and ale, and containing about double the quantity of an ordinary tumbler.” An 1896 quote from a Scottish newspaper shows the term had crossed the Atlantic, and specifies its size: “‘the schooner ‘ 14 fluid ounces, or 2 4-5ths imperial gills found in everyday use, under various names, in London, Glasgow, Aberdeen, and elsewhere.” But then, the term seems to have subsided both in Britain and the U.S., only to reappear, by the 1930s, in Australia and New Zealand.
A fascinating 2011 article in Australia Beer News traced the tangled history of “schooner” in New South Wales. The author, Dr. Brett J. Stubbs, limits himself to that state because “tracing the history of the schooner glass (let alone of beer glasses in general) in Australia requires more than just a short article.” To summarize his tale would require more than just a short blog post, but fortunately, this graphic is floating around the internet (apologies for not being able to figure out and cite the original source). Meanwhile, by the 1960s the meaning of “schooner” in Britain had changed to, as the OED puts it, “A tall, waisted sherry glass” holding 3.5 ounces. The writer of a 1973 article in The Times wasn’t happy with this development, referring to “the abominably proportioned waisted Elgin glass, sometimes used for sherry, or its vulgar outsize version, the schooner,” Schooners for sherry. And what of North America? Not surprisingly, we have super-sized the schooner. The OED is no help here, but this is what Wikipedia has to say: In Canada, a “schooner” refers to a large capacity beer glass. Unlike the Australian schooner, which is smaller than a pint, a Canadian schooner is always larger.
Although not standardized, the most common size of schooner served in Canadian bars is 946 ml (32 US fl oz); the volume of two US pints. It is usually a tankard (mug) shaped glass, rather than a pint-shaped glass. In the United States, “schooner” refers to the shape of the glass (rounded with a short stem), rather than the capacity.
It can range from 18 to 32 US fl oz (532 to 946 ml). Sure enough, here’s an article from a Lawrence, Kansas, newspaper about a bar in that college town that serves 32 oz. schooners in the rounded shape — though “If the bar runs out of clean glasses on a busy night, you’ll get your 32 ounces of beer in a giant plastic cup.” In my preliminary research on the topic, I posted on Facebook the Brooklyn sign and a query as to the meaning of “schooner.” Someone replied that in New England, it’s 10 ounces — perhaps an example of a British usage that has been retained in that region, like ” rubbish,” But my favorite comment came from my friend Jan Ambrose, who is discriminating in her beer tastes: “There is no amount of Bud I would pay $3 for.”
Is a pint the same size as a schooner?
Beer glasses – Prior to metrication in Australia, one could buy beer or cider in glasses of 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 15 or 20 (imperial) fluid ounces, Each sized glass had a different name in each Australian state. These were replaced by glasses of size 115, 140, 170, 200, 285, 425 and 570 mL, and as Australians travel more, the differences are decreasing.
Smaller sizes have been phased out over time, and in the 21st century, very few pubs serve glasses smaller than 200 mL (approximately 7 imp fl oz ). Those typically available are the 200 mL, 285 mL (10 fl oz) and 425 mL (15 fl oz), with increasingly many pubs also having pints (570 mL, approximately 20 imp fl oz) available.
It is also common for pubs and hotels to serve large jugs filled to 1140ml ( approximately two imp pints). Many imported beers are also served in their own branded glasses of various sizes, including 250 millilitres (8.8 imp fl oz), 330 millilitres (11.6 imp fl oz) and 500 millilitres (17.6 imp fl oz) for many European beers.

A glass of beer, produced by the Newstead Brewing Company With the introduction of the National Trade Measurement Regulations in 2009 there are no prescribed sizes for beverage measures for the sale of beer, ale and stout, so terms such as seven, middy, pot or schooner do not legally specify a particular size.
- 6 fl oz (170 mL) – prior to metrification this glass was known as a “Butcher”
- 7 fl oz (200 mL), became known as a “Butcher” in later years after smaller sizes were phased out
- 10 fl oz (285 mL) known as a ” schooner “. Prior to metrication and standardisation of glass sizes throughout Australia, schooners in SA were 9 fluid ounces (256 mL).
- 15 fl oz (425 mL) known as a “pint”
- 20 fl oz (570 mL) known as an “imperial pint”
Many of these sizes are now rarely used. In contemporary SA pubs and restaurants, the most frequent measures are the “schooner” of 285 mL (an imperial half pint), and the “pint” of 425 mL. “Imperial pints” are also increasingly popular, along with the sale of “premium” and non-locally brewed beer in bottles of between 300 mL to 375 mL.
- the SA “schooner” (285 mL) is the same size as other States’ pot / middy / half pint
- the SA “pint” (425 mL) is the same size as other States’ schooner, and is three-quarters of an imperial pint.
Headmasters is one of the most common glass manufacturers, at least for the schooner size. Many pubs, in Sydney and Melbourne particularly, offer Guinness style and/or conical pint glasses along with tankard glass and British dimpled glass pint mugs. Larger serving measurements have become increasingly popular, such as Jugs, 1 fluid litre Maß (pronounced like “mass”, normally in German-themed bars) and beer towers (although technically illegal due to strict self-service of alcohol laws, these are in some Asian bars/karaoke parlours) have grown in popularity around Australia in tourist spots.
What is a 7 oz beer called?
A deep dive into Aussie beer sizes – The question of whether you skol or scull a beer is one we have covered more than once, But how about getting the beer in the first place. Visitors to Australian shores are often flummoxed by the range of names we give our beer receptacles. And even more confusingly, these words refer to different sizes depending on whereabouts in Australia you end up.
Let’s take schooner as our base for now. In NSW, ACT, NT and Qld and parts of WA and Tasmania, this equates to a glass of beer of approximately 425mL. But if you end up in SA, a schooner is in fact a glass of beer of approximately 285mL. Confused yet? We’re only just getting started. Asking for a schooner (at 285mL) in South Australia is equivalent to simply asking for a beer in Tasmania and the Northern Territory.
While you’re in the NT, you can also ask for a handle and receive the same thing. Still in the NT, you can also ask for a middy and still be understood to want the same thing. The great thing about the word middy is that it travels. You can take it to NSW, ACT, WA and some of Qld with no worries at all.
In Victoria and parts of Queensland and Tasmania (two more multilingual beer states, like the NT), you will need to ask for a pot, And, again in Tasmania and Queensland, you can use the word ten to mean a glass of beer of approximately 285mL (or ten fluid ounces – more on this soon). But we’re far from done.
In beer terms, there is a slightly smaller version that is a glass of approximately 200ml. And if you’re in Victoria, WA or Qld, asking for a beer will get you one of these. In SA, this size is known as a butcher, In WA, Victoria, Tasmania and Qld, a simple glass,
- And in NSW, ACT, Tasmania and Qld, the strangely named seven,
- It was called a seven as 200mL is also 7 fluid ounces, or a seven-ounce,
- But wait, we’ve gone from a ten or ten ounces to a seven,
- What about the numbers in between? Well, there is no nine, but a niner is a small keg of about 40.5 litres.
And also no eight, but there is the phrase over the eight, which means ‘intoxicated’, and comes from an old-fashioned, customary worker’s ration of ale for a day which was 8 pints (see below for what a pint means in beer speak!). In Tasmania, there was previously another measure of beer known as a six, which equated to, you guessed it, six fluid ounces or 170mL.
- And in Qld and some other places, there is the five, the meaning of which should be clear by now, also known as a pony,
- And that’s where the numbered beers stop.
- So, it’s much simpler to ask for a schooner, as it’s almost universally understood.
- However, remember that in SA, if you want a schooner, or a 450mL glass of beer, you will need to ask for a pint,
In NSW and the ACT, a pint is equivalent to one eighth of a gallon of beer, or around 568ml. This is the British measurement. But, in WA, Tasmania and SA, a pint is equivalent to around 473mL, which is the American measurement and is close enough to the schooner size of 425mL for it to have been conflated.

How big is a schooner beer UK?
United Kingdom – In Britain, a schooner is a large glass. Sherry is traditionally served in one of two measures: a, the smaller measure, or a, the larger measure, both named after the sort of ships that brought sherry over from Spain. The schooner name was more particular to Bristol, to where most sherry was imported, stored and bottled.
Why is a beer called a schooner?
Schooner Wars For centuries the Poms have drunk their ale from regulation pint and half-pint measures, but as a result of recent legislation, UK publicans will now also be allowed to fill intermediate-sized glasses of about two-thirds of a pint capacity.
CUB has capitalised on the confusion in Australian beer size names. This recent decision has generated much excited comment in both the UK and in Australia. It is not simply the size of the new glass and the break with long tradition, however, that have the Pommies all astir. More worrying is the fact that the glass in question is an Australian-style vessel—the well-known ‘schooner’.
Some English commentators fear that adopting the new beer measure will give the Aussies their revenge for their recent thrashing in the cricket, especially if the victors have to toast their success in schooners. While it may be correct to call the schooner an Australian beer measure, its use has only recently become widespread in this country.
For instance, it has not been used traditionally in either Tasmania or Queensland. In South Australia the term schooner is applied to a much smaller vessel (10 fluid ounces/284ml), while the glass that elsewhere would be called a schooner (15 fluid ounces/426ml) is termed a ‘pint’, or more correctly a ‘reputed pint’—but that is another story.
Tracing the history of the schooner glass (let alone of beer glasses in general) in Australia requires more than just a short article, so this account is limited mainly to the use of the term in New South Wales. In that state the schooner was formally adopted as a standard beer measure on 1 November 1948, which is when a new clause in the state’s Liquor Act concerning beer glasses came into effect.
- The new clause stated that no holder of a publican’s licence could supply any ‘malt liquor’ for consumption on the premises except in a glass ‘sized to contain five, or ten, or fifteen, or twenty fluid ounces’ (142ml, 284ml, 426ml, 568ml).
- As a pint comprised twenty fluid ounces, this regular series of measures contained one-quarter, one-half, three-quarters, and one pint.
Regulation ‘schooner’ glass Prior to the standardisation of beer glass sizes in 1948, the position in New South Wales had been irregular for many years. The term ‘schooner’ was in common use in Sydney by the early 1930s when it was applied to an unstamped and unofficial glass of variable capacity, but containing somewhat less than a pint.
The origin of the term, although unknown, is suggested by the comments of a magistrate in a 1931 Sydney court case. A city publican was proceeded against for supplying a schooner of beer instead of a pint. The aggrieved customer was found to be legally entitled to a full pint in a stamped measure if he asked for a pint; he should receive a ‘full-rigged ship’, not a lesser fore-and-aft rigged schooner,
At the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939, beer in New South Wales was retailed in glasses of three different sizes: 20 ounces (pint), 13 ounces (369ml), and 9 ounces (255ml). There was also a schooner glass, but this seems then to have been a pint measure, differing from a normal pint ‘pot’ by its lack of a handle.
It was not ‘full-rigged’ in a different sense. This provides another possible origin of the term ‘schooner’, i.e it was named for its shape (tall, slender and unadorned with a handle) rather than its capacity. The pint, at this time, was the only official beer glass size in New South Wales; any smaller sizes in use were unregulated, but the law required the service of a full Imperial pint if demanded.
A regulation pint stamp In response to an increase in beer excise late in 1939—soon after the war began—New South Wales hotelkeepers reduced the size of 13 and 9 ounce glasses to 12 and 8 ounces (340ml/227ml) to partly offset the increased tax. This was the first of a series of wartime changes to beer glass sizes that seem to have included the standardisation of the schooner at 17 ounces (483ml), and then its reduction to 16 ounces (454ml) in 1941.
In March 1942, as a wartime rationing measure, production of beer in Australian breweries was reduced to two-thirds of normal output. In conjunction with this measure, and to assist in the orderly rationing of beer to consumers, pint glasses were eliminated from New South Wales pubs. Other glass sizes, namely the recently-created 16-ounce schooner and the reinstated 9-ounce middy, were retained.
Restrictions on the use of schooners were introduced late in 1942 as a further rationing measure. Publicans were given the right to refuse to serve beer in schooners except during the busiest period of the day, namely the couple of hours before closing time at 6pm.
This was meant to reserve beer for times when it was most in demand. In the industrial city of Newcastle, however, this penalised a large body of workers, including steelworkers, waterside workers and coal miners, who knocked off from their shifts well before 4pm. The resulting protests and industrial stoppages early in 1943 became known as the ‘schooner war’.
Pint glasses did not immediately reappear at the end of the war. Close consideration was given, however, to the whole question of beer glass sizes. The United Licensed Victuallers’ Association (ULVA), the publicans’ body, and forerunner of the Australian Hotels Association (AHA), proposed to reduce the size of the schooner from 16 to 13 ounces.
The Commonwealth Prices Commissioner agreed, saying that this still left New South Wales with the largest glass in the country. Victoria’s maximum was then an 11-ounce glass (312ml). Orders were placed with a large Sydney glass manufacturer for supplies of the proposed new 13-ounce glasses, but glass workers refused to make them, believing that the smaller glasses were really only a sneaky means of increasing brewery profits.
The liquor trade more broadly was overhauled after the war, and a new liquor bill was prepared and presented to parliament in 1946. Among many changes was the adoption of four standard sizes for beer glasses: 5 (pony), 10 (middy), 15 (schooner) and 20 (pint) fluid ounces.
- The latter, the pint, reappeared in September 1947, after an absence from New South Wales pubs of nearly five years.
- Introduction of the others was delayed by a shortage of glass, but they eventually appeared on 1 November 1948 when the new Section 67 of the Liquor Act came into effect.
- The capacity of the schooner was thus reduced from 16 to 15 ounces—three-quarters of a pint—in 1948.
With metrication in the 1970s, its capacity was redesignated as 425mL. The schooner is evidently a very useful size of glass, else why would it have spread to most parts of Australia. For me, its utility lies mainly in its ability to neatly accommodate the contents of a 375mL beer bottle, leaving sufficient space for an ample head.
- This essential role for a schooner seems so obvious that I am astonished at how often after buying a small bottle across the bar that I am handed an inadequate middy glass into which to empty it.
- This important role aside, it is also a handy size when a half-pint of draught beer is too little and a pint is too much.
Indeed, this was the reason for its inclusion in the new range of standard glass sizes in 1946, and it is the main reason given now for its adoption in the mother country. Opponents there complain that having three glass sizes will cause confusion, but they may gain confidence from the knowledge that we Colonial beer drinkers have coped effortlessly with more for many decades.
What makes a schooner a schooner?
Size and Qualities of the Schooner – A schooner is a sailboat built with a minimum of two masts. With this, the foremast is typically slightly shorter than the first or main mast. While a schooner may sometimes have more than two masts, most schooners contain only two. The size of the schooner enables it to sail upwind with ease, making for an enjoyable and efficient sail.
What is a 10 oz beer called?
Australian Pub Project, Established 2013 – on October 14, 2018 • Bonnie Reece in a Sydney city hotel with the new “middy” February 1941. Picture: Daily Telegraph. By MICK ROBERTS © IN Sydney it’s called a middy, while in Melbourne or Brisbane, a 10 ounce glass of beer is dubbed a pot. The 10 ounce glass has been a popular beer vessel in Australian pubs for over a century, although the means in which it’s been ordered over the bar has varied from state to state.
The middy or pot first formerly appeared in Australian pubs in February 1941. Prior to 1941 drinkers could enjoy their beer in various size receptacles, ranging from four through to 12 ounce glasses, right up to a pint. Queenslanders have been drinking their beloved 10 ounce ‘pot’ of beer in its current form for 80 years.
But the ‘pot’ as Queenslanders know it, wasn’t always 10 ounce. Prior to 1941 the pot held 12 ounces of beer and was sold at six pence. That same year the Commonwealth Prices Commissioner sanctioned a new size beer glass. The new measure would appease disgruntled customers who would not mind having two ounces less in their pot after a beer price rise. The new Queensland 10-ounce pot, compared to the 12-ounce pot. Cleverly, the new glass was slightly higher and narrower, giving the impression of a larger beer vessel. A leading Queensland hotelkeeper in 1941 reported that some men who normally enjoyed one drink at seven pence a pot, was now having two 10 ounce pots instead.
In most Australian states, with the exception of NSW, the term ‘pot’ seems to have been used for all size glasses, up until the 1940s. Victoria in 1940 had a 5-ounce glass of beer for 3-pence, a 10-ounce glass for 5-pence, and a 12-ounce glass for 6-pence – all known as ‘pots’. By the end of the 1940s though, Victorians, when ordering a pot of beer, would be served an 11-ounce glass of beer, and pay 6-pence for the pleasure.
Over in Western Australia during the 1940s, you would receive a 10-ounce glass of beer when ordering a pot. That has now changed, and a 10-ounce glass of beer in Perth today is generally known as a middy. South Australia has the most confusing names for beer glasses.
A 10-ounce glass of beer is labelled as a schooner. The name originated in the mid 1930s, and has stuck to the present day. In NSW a 10-ounce glass is known as a middy. The 10-ounce middy glass, priced at 6-pence, was introduced into NSW pubs in February 1941. The history of the middy glass in NSW is similar to that of Queensland.
The glass was introduced to appease disgruntled drinkers who were upset with the rise in beer prices. The United Liquor Victuallers’ Association (the forerunner of today’s Australian Hotels’ Association) planned a reduction in the size of the 17-ounce schooner glass, and an increase in price.
- Drinkers (and unions, which black banned many pubs), understandably were not happy.
- To ease the growing backlash, the ULVA introduced the 10-ounce middy glass at 6-pence, and a 12-ounce ‘half schooner’ at 7-pence.
- A 17-ounce schooner would set you back 9-pence in 1941.
- The new middy proved an immediate success, and the 12-ounce half schooner, which didn’t quite catch-on, was gradually phased out in NSW pubs.
Tasmania is probably the most sensible of all our states and territories. In that state all glasses of beer are ordered by their size – a 10-ounce glass is simply that – a ‘10′.

What is a 10 oz beer glass called?
Snifter Glasses for Beer – Usually used for sipping brandy and cognac, the snifter has made the transition into beer glass territory, albeit a shrunken 9 or 10-ounce size.

What do Australians call a pint of beer?
How to Order a Beer in Australia Sharing a beer may be a universal language—a frosty and familiar custom practiced by thirsty travelers the world over—but in, the language of ordering a beer becomes a little less, well, universal, Sure, you could sidle up to an Aussie bar and simply ask for “a beer,” but, let’s face it, it’s never fun looking like a blow in (Australian slang for “newcomer”).
Here’s how a typical bar discourse might go in, say,, Victoria: Bartender: “You right mate?” Customer: “Schooner of Vic Bitter mate.” Bartender: “Cheers mate.” Customer: “Cheers.”
To translate, the bartender is asking the customer if he or she is alright—not to be taken literally, as in, “how are you,” but more as a friendly greeting, where a direct answer is not required. The term “mate,” while predominantly associated with males, is also commonly used for females, too.
You can really never overuse the term “mate” in Australia. In more British-influenced states like New South Wales and Victoria, “Cheers” or “Ta” may be used for “thank you,” whereas in states like Queensland or South Australia, a simple “thanks” will suffice. Up in the Northern Territory, you might hear the term “bloke” substituted for “mate,” as in, “You right bloke?” As for the that baffling sentence by the customer referencing a “schooner,” we’ll get to that in tip number two.2.
Know your glass sizes The real test of an Aussie beer aficionado is knowing which beer glass term to use, and where to use it. One size does not fit all in Oz, but to simplify things, let’s break it down into two measurements: large (425ml/15 fl. oz.) and small (285ml/10 fl.
- Oz.). Residents of Victoria and South Australia call the large sized beer a “pint,” while in all other states it’s called a “schooner” (pronounced “skooner”).
- There’s more variation with the smaller size.
- Folks in New South Wales, Australian Capital Territory, and Western Australia call it a “middy”; Victoria and Queensland locals dub it a “pot”; Tasmanians a “ten”; Northern Territorians a “handle”; and, rather confusingly, South Australians term it a “schooner.” In all states asking for a “pint” will get you a 570 ml/20 fl.
oz. glass except for in South Australia where locals like to break the mold and call it an “imperial pint.” There are other less-common sizes like the 140ml/5 fl. oz. which some states rather adorably call a “pony”. Meanwhile, asking for a “seven” in New South Wales and Northern Territory, or simply a “glass” in Western Australia and Victoria will get you 200ml/7fl.
- Oz. of suds.
- Confused? No worries.
- When in doubt, order a bottle! 3.
- Don’ t forget to shout! No, I don’t mean yell, although that type of shouting is certainly commonplace in an Aussie bar.
- I’m referring to buying a round, an important custom when drinking with mates down under.
- Indicate to your drinking companions that it’s your turn to buy the group drinks with a resounding “My shout!” Don’t worry, most Aussies are “true blue” and will shout you back.4.

What is a 20 oz beer called?
Beer by the glass – At bars and restaurants, there are three primary types of glass sizes that are used to serve beer: the 4-ounce glass, the 8-ounce glass, and the 16-ounce glass. Each of these glasses is best used for a specific purpose, which is why you might find yourself getting served the same beer in a different glass when you go to two different bars and restaurants.
- For example, the 4-ounce glass is almost only used for beer flights.
- For any tasting, 3-4 ounces is the industry norm, and so the 4-ounce glass can be used for tasting a variety of beers.
- Importantly, 4 ounces is exactly one-quarter of a pint, the most common size on a bar menu.
- Thus, it’s easy to see why many beer flight tastings are optimally organized for sets of four people at one time.
The 8-ounce beer glass is the preferred size for high ABV beers. Most 8-ounce beer glasses will have a slight curvature to them, as in snifter glasses and tulip glasses. This curvature is not accidental – it is the shape that has been optimized to catch and concentrate all the flavors and aromas of a specific beer.
- The higher the alcohol content of the beer, the more likely there will be nutty, cocoa or chocolate overtones that are best captured with a beer snifter glass – much as a Scotch aficionado would also request a special snifter glass in order to fully experience the whiskey he or she was drinking.
- The 16-ounce beer glass is generally acknowledged to be the universal standard for ordering the beer.
If you walk into a pub in the UK or a bar in the United States, ordering a pint is pretty much par for the course. That being said, there are two different types of pint glasses. The most common are flat-sided, standard glasses. Slightly more unique are the nonic pint glasses, which have a small ridge halfway up the glass in order to help capture the beer’s aroma.

When it comes to your typical beer such as a lager, the following can be used as a guide: –
A pot/middy 285ml (4.8% alcohol) of full-strength beer contains 1.1 standard drinks A pot/middy 285ml (3.5% alcohol) of mid-strength beer contains 0.8 standard drinks A pot/middy 285ml (2.7% alcohol) of low-strength beer contains 0.6 standard drinks A schooner 425ml (4.8% alcohol) of full-strength beer contains 1.6 standard drinks A schooner 425ml (3.5% alcohol) of mid-strength beer contains 1.2 standard drinks A schooner 425ml (2.7% alcohol) of low-strength beer contains 0.9 standard drinks
Is a schooner 1 standard?
Standard drinks of beer and cider – Many bottles of full-strength beer and cider contain more than one standard drink. For example, a 375mL bottle of full-strength beer is usually 1.4 standard drinks. If an average-sized male drinks three of those in two hours, they would have consumed 4.2 standard drinks in 2 hours.
This could put them over,05. If you are drinking tap beer or cider, a 285mL glass (pot or middy) of full-strength beer is approximately one standard drink. A 425mL glass (schooner) of mid-strength beer is approximately 1.2 standard drinks. A 425mL (schooner) glass of light beer is approximately one standard drink.
A pint of mid-strength beer is approximately 1.5 standard drinks, and a pint of full-strength beer is approximately 2.1 standard drinks. If an average-sized male drinks three pints of full-strength beer in two hours, they would have consumed 6.3 standard drinks in two hours.

Tuesday Focus Group: Pint vs Schooner We petitioned, we wrote letters, we met with weights and measures & HMRC, oh and we campaigned with a dwarf outside the houses of parliament for a whole week. And we changed the law! We forced the coalition government to shake the dust from 300-year-old measures laws, tearing up archaic licensing rules as the 2/3 pint measure was duly legalised. With the 2/3 pint ‘schooner’ glasses now available in all, we wanted to get your feedback on what you think is the perfect serving size for your favourite craft beers. In our bars we normally offer everything below 4.9% in pint glasses – this is usually our 4.1% Trashy Blonde and 2.8% Blitz with everything over 7.6% usually available in a stemmed half pint glass.
