What on earth? Why? Surely the government have better things to do than mess with my pint?

I remember years ago Leigh from the H&G telling me that It has always been legal to sell beer in 1/3 pint measures. It just so happens that publicans chose to sell it in 3/3 pint measures.  (b)  It was what people wanted.

I full expect that sooner or later will have to ask for 568ml of beer, rather than a pint.

Beer prices are on the increase generally anyway. Changing teh size of teh glass won't directly affect the price of beer, but with all these things I suspect we'll end up paying more (for new glasses etc).

I think as mainstream beer is now stronger than it was 10 years ago it might be a good thing to have smaller measures...

Nothing, I like a pint as much as the next person, but I think it gives those an option who don't want to feel the effects of a full 5%er
