Does the "Boston Sized" pint I am currently drinking at BP throw a wrench into this too? :)

Your statement is like saying "I'm drinking a Boston sized liter of beer."

A pint is a unit of measure, like an ounce or a kilogram. In the UK and Canada, it equals 20 Oz of liquid. Period.

Some things just aren't meant to be known

Yes I know. I was being silly.

I always refer to a draught pint as 20oz. I just saw that on 21 on my glass as I was reading this thread and laughed.

New year, new bump... I urge you all to go to your local bar and order a pint. For research, of course. You might need a few to produce consistent results.

Good bump and good idea - anyone notice how places are showing 'pint' less and less on the menu and trying to pass off 16-18ounce pours as regular without using the word 'pint'?

Nickel and diming everywhere.

Probably americanization of glassware
Almost too cheap to shop through RFD

At BP splitting a 32oz Schooner in to a 18oz pint and a 14oz Sleeve.

I hate that big MUG. MUGS are for coffee. Not beer.
