SALEM -- It's not quite policing pints, but some legislators want to make sure brewpubs and taverns pour you a full glass of beer.

A bill that debuted before a House committee Friday calls for the state to measure servings and the Oregon Liquor Control Commission to issue decals to establishments that meet the "honest pint" 16-ounce standard.

It may seem a small thing but it pisses me off when a bar has pub glasses that look like pint glasses but in reality only hold 14 ounces to the brim meaning what they actually pour is between 12-13 ounces. Yeah, it's only a couple ounces difference but it's still a deceptive practice and I don't like doing business with people engaged in deceptive practices. I like the European glasses that actually have the measurement line marked on the side of the glass so you actually know how much you're getting.

Bar I used to drink in in Ireland has 16oz mark on the glass that they used to fill to.
It never bothered me tbh, head is a vital part of the beer and is part of hte 16oz. So do we need to start paying for the extra head we get over the 16oz now or what ? hehe

They're probably trying to distract attention from the law they want to pass raising the tax on beer kegs so much that the price of a single drink would increase by $1.50, according to this link.

$1.50/beer tax? I wonder what Sam Adams would have said about that.

That just makes no sense. Considering how important hops are to Oregon's agricultural economy and how much beer is a part of the region's culture, this is like Florida passing a massive tax on orange juice and swim trunks.
