Half Pint Glass is ACTUALLY a Pint Glass Cut In Half
When you ask for half a pint in a bar, you generally expect to get a pint in a glass that’s half the height/width. This way you can drink more slowly and/or safely. Though if you’re like most people you’ll just drink twice as much, still get drunk and waste a lot more money in the process.
But that’s by the by. Point is, what you don’t expect is for your bartender to take a pint of beer and then saw it in half straight down the middle. That would be a wise-ass thing to do and it would also make a mess and waste a lot of good beer.
The Half Pint Glass though is exactly that concept with none of the mess. It’s a great gag to play on friends who ask for half a pint and if a bar would serve these it would probably get a lot of free publicity and really entertain its guests.
It does fall over a little more easily but it’s well shaped for propping up against a wall. Then it looks like it’s emerging mysteriously into the bar…
So all in all, the Thumbs Up Half Pint Glass gets a… thumbs up!
