Honest Pint Regulations Now!

647 Signatures Goal: 1,000

When a patron pays for a pint of beer in a restaurant or pub in Oregon, the glass should hold a full 16 ounces of beer. Unfortunately, the most common type of glassware in regular use is the 14-ounce "shaker" pint glass. In many cases, neither the owners, servers, or patrons are aware that the shaker pint glassware is undersized. Therefore, we, the undersigned, request that the Oregon Department of Agriculture Measurement Standards Division create a program to authenticate glassware used in bars and restaurants as an honest 16-ounce pint.

    I thought I was alone in this. I'm delighted to discover that others share my dissatisfaction when I'm served a pint and receive only a "pint". A pint in name only. A 14 oz "pint" means that the beer in every 8th pint sold has already been paid for by other patrons.

    It's either a pint (16 oz) or a "pint" (whatever they think they can get away with.) I want an honest, actual pint when I spend $4-$5 for a pint in a bar.

    If I go into a beer, and order a pint of beer- I had better get 16oz (at least) of beer. . . I would be happy to receive more, but do not expect it. . . What I do expect when I order a pint, is to receive a pint, at least.... not an oz less, no 15ozbeer, and certainly not a 14oz beer.
