Could the days of the British "pint" be numbered? - Yahoo! News

Am i the only one that thinks this is totally insane?

I mean a pint of beer is the most classic English beverage one can consume.

Maybe i'm wrong but from what i've read they just introduced another measure (schooner) but pint remains.

hmm... you may be right, but my first reaction after reading it was that the gov't wanted to ged rid of the pint measurement outright.

I don't care about no pints, but I love big-assed, heavy glass beer steins. You get a little workout with your beer.
