Last year we wrote about the growing scourge of “falsies,” which are basically 14 ounce beer glasses made to look like pints so bars can charge you for a full beer without giving you one. Obviously this is abhorrent behavior and the most deceptive use of glass since my college roommates tricked me into crashing through a sliding door by dressing up like robots and chasing me around the living room.
Lawmakers in Oregon agreed with our hardline stance, recently passing House Bill 3122 — also known as the “Honest Pint Act.” The law would reward bars that serve full 16 ounce pints with stickers that prove they serve an honest pint.
I don’t know what they do with the stickers. Probably put them on their skateboards like I do.
