OH I'm not a happy beer drinker. Last night I went to one of my favorite watering holes, bellied up to the bar and ordered a "pint" of local brew on the handpulled tap. My beer arrived and my pains eased....... but only temporaily. As I wrapped my hand around the "pint glass" I hoisted it to my mouth took a sip and set the beer down.
At this point I noticed 3 things:
1) I had just drank nearly 1/3 of my beer on my first sip
2) My routine 16oz curls were easier then usual and I havent worked out in nearly 2 weeks
3) When I picked up my glass the tips of my fingers wrapped around my glass and touched.
I found this odd, turned to my buddy and he said "I don't think this is a 16 oz glass"
He was right it was only 14oz's. I asked the bartender
PBD: "Hey is this a Pint"
Bartender "Yup, that is what you ordered right"
PBD: "But this seems small for a pint"
Bartender: "Well we got new glasses, they're 14oz glasses"
PBD: :-C "SO, it is not a Pint, isn't a pint 16oz. Is this the same price as your old pints"
Bartender: "The Arcadia IPA is $4.75"
PBD: "You mean it is $0.50 more and 2 oz less"
By this time my 14oz pint is gone
Bartender: "Hey I'm just pouring the beer, would you like another one"
PBD: 8ol "How much are you Miller Lite bottles?"
PBD: "If it is a 12 oz bottle and you don't pour out 2oz I take that."
SO I get my bill and on the bill it says "pint" By this time I told my self I will not support the place anymore. It is a shame because I had a relationship with this bar. It was a great little/dark/smokefree Irish bar in a old neighborhood with cool people .
SO Do I report them to the State Liquor Commission? Help
