Long Live the Imperial Pint

In a victory for common sense and British tradition, the European Parliament voted on a measure that allows Britons to keep their Imperial units of measure. This means that beer can continue to be served in pints, and not half liters. The British pint is 20 ounces while the US pint is 16 ounces. Guess that is what makes it imperial. The EU ruling preserves both tradition and saves pubs, brewers and retailers a pile of money they would have been forced to spend redoing labels, signage and purchasing new glassware.
