If Michigan lawmakers get their way, you'll get exactly a pint of beer moving forward. David Knezek of Dearborn Heights and Brandon Dillon of Grand Rapids want to adjust the State Liquor Act so that every pint of beer served at a bar or restaurant is an "honest pint," meaning it's exactly 16 ounces.
Under the proposed bill, "[advertising] or [selling] any glass of beer as a pint in this state unless that glass contains at least 16 ounces of beer" would be illegal. As anticipated, the notion has been met with opposition from bar owners who claim a pint of beer is more of an observation than a measurement. Furthermore, bar owners argue that they would be forced to purchase new glasses, and therefore have to spend mad money making the transition.
As long as customers get their money's worth, they'll be satisfied.
