are bottled beers from bars/pubs also this small now?
I don't often drink bottles from bars.
Thank you in advance.
Has this already happened? I was at a friend's place on Saturday drinking Becks, and I noticed I'd already gone through two bottles before I'd barely taken my jacket off, and I'm hardly a necker of alcohol. That might explain it
so took a bit longer to get the jacket off
Maybe those crappy supermarket French beers as well?
I think you should have a little think about what has happened.
but who won? I needs to know.
everyone knows that those crappy supermarket French beers are 250ml. Gringo has gone on the defensive by pretending to think I was talking about Becks. Cowardly tactics, I'm sure you'll agree.
is all your fault
we're up to our necks in Balonz related paperwork down at the station. He's like the Al Capone of rampant exaggeration.
I believe Smirnoff Ice is for example...
from a beer perspective, unless we are talking Belgian specialist shit
I don't understand how bottle shops haven't gone under (buried beneath mountains of glass)
...is primarily due to redefining what binge drinking is, against a backdrop of falling actual alcohol consumption.
please out yourself below:
If I'm in any way suspicious of the taps, I'll drink bottles.
Haven't for a while, but might.
And my friend drinks Rekorderlig (taking a stab in the dark with that spelling).
about dancing in a pub with a bottle of corona in each hand

I'm all over that. You'd be an idiot not to be.
there's one in The Elm Tree that sells for £80.
The boss has put his card behind the bar again, you say?
they also serve mead there. Mead.
It were a golden age.
German beer/bitter tend to be 500ml
Belgian tend to be 275ml or 300ml
so you have to buy bottles.
If it happens to you, it's only because the innkeeper has seen a rube coming
...for example The Dogstar in Brixton, stop selling draught beer beyond 11pm. Ostensibly so the dancefloor doesn't become a skating rink.
as did Bardens back in the day. Incredibly annoying.
Not sure why, but i really appreciate that extra 25ml. Good thread.
There, beers are 375ml...
Their soft drinks (i.e Coke) is 355ml. I think it's 8 fluid ounces
Of course you don't, none of you were there.
Turns out it was a 25ml difference and that isn't very impressive.
loads of bottles are now 275ml which is basically a French stubby bottle plus a shot. They make them in all funny shapes to compensate, yet are still less than half a pint. And sell 4 for something silly like £5. May as well go down the pub and have a pint of proper beer.
used to be real size now they're comedy sized. that's some bullshit right there. thought i was getting a right deal at 6 bottles for a fiver, in reality i was getting proper fisted.
But I think he's done you there. Literally.
Weird little things, like drinking out of a grenade. But you definitely go through them faster than you would a normal shaped bottle
how has no one posted that before? 10/10.
