So, where were we with the beer?
I think we're up to the 10-ouncer. It's a 'middy' in Sydney, Perth, and Canberra, but a 'schooner' in Adelaide. In Hobart it's a 'ten', in Darwin a 'handle', and in Brisbane and Melbourne it's a 'pot'.
At the big end of glasses, there is much greater consensus across the wide brown land, which befits a nation of big drinkers. The 15-ouncer is called a 'schooner' everywhere but in Adelaide, where it is a 'pint'. Typical South Australian exceptionalism!
Finally, the rare 20-ouncer is a 'pint' everywhere but in Adelaide, where it is an 'imperial pint'. Bloody imperialists!
