A Conversation for Buying Beer in Australia

No pot size in WA, its a pint!

Post 1


For some unknown reason a lot of sites on the net have "pot" as being a pint sized glass in WA.
This is not true, and as far as I know a pot has never existed in WA. A 570ml glass has always been called a pint.
I've been in WA all my life, and drinking for at least the last 10 years, and I have never heard of a pot here. First I heard of a pot was when I went to Victoria.

I think someone made a mistake on a beer size web site years ago, and the mistake has been copied to every other site since then.
Fortunately wikipedia has the correct sizes:

Though they are also a bit wrong as they currently say "many pubs outside of VIC and WA now have Pints" - as far as I know *all* pubs in WA have pints!
I'll have to edit that. smiley - smiley
