It’s Fun to Know: Is that Pint Really a Pint?

The next time you order a pint of your favorite frosty brew at a pub or restaurant, check out the glass. You might be getting shortchanged. In response to rising costs, some establishments have turned to raising beer prices and (shudder) substituting traditional 16-ounce pint glasses with 14-ouncers, known as "falsies." The glasses are the same height, but the smaller version has a noticeably thicker glass bottom. Beer lovers beware.
