An American and an Englishman went for a pint. They got into a argument about the difference between a US pint and a UK pint. The American said the difference was 25%. The Englishman said it was only 20%.Who was right?
Well actually it's approximately 17% smaller or 20% larger.(568-473)/568=0.167 (16.7%)(568-473/473=0.201 (20.1%)So I prefer buying beer in England.
It might be reasonable to speculate that both drinkers were unaware of the metric equivalents.In that case they might (mistakenly) have thought that the pints had volumes in the ration 16 Oz to 20 Oz.In that case they pint is 25% bigger than the pint, but the pint is only 20% smaller than a pint (I think, but it might be the other way round).Incidentally, I thought the normal reason for prefering to buybeer in England was that American beer is like making love in a canoe.I wouldn't know because I usually drink whiskey.
Do they really drink beer warm in the UK?
If a fizzy lager is too warm, it's usually awful.
