You can buy a Pint glass, but it's not very common. Mainly reserved for Bucks Nights etc. In my home state of NSW a large glass of beer is a 'Schooner' and the lady or the bloke who's driving might have a smaller 'Middy'. There is a smaller denomination as well, but I don't recall the nomenclature.
In Victoria they are called 'Pots'. (Or if you are from NSW and referring to Vic: Ghey wee little pansy glasses).
This just made me realise that I've been living in Queensland for 9 years and have never bought a beer at the bar. I have no idea what they are called here. Pretty sure it's not Pints ... but ... Queensland.
I'm almost always riding so have a Large Coke and the girl has 'Bubbles'.
Which leads to the obvious question, "You've never bought a Mate one Davey???"
Alas no - for one, my Harley riding buddies (regardless of the Harley rider sterotyping) don't stop at the Pub very often. When we do, for lunch, there is usually six to ten of us and we only have one drink, two at most, so 'a shout' or getting rounds in isn't viable - every man for himself.
Social, I've been married 37 years and we go to restaurants and I drink fine Australian wines dontchaknow. When you've been happily married for that long Bars and Nightclubs have long lost their appeal. She'd rather be at home watching Home Renovation programmes and I'd rather be in my geekery.
... is the long answer.
