is it like that in real life?
So yeah, I see in so many movies and TV show where bar staff pour a beer but never completely fill the glass. It is always an inch or so from the top, and then there's a good inch of froth [suds in the US] which would roughly equate to about a half glass of beer.
In Australia and the UK, glasses are filled right to the top, so I'm curious, in real life, when Americans go to a bar, do they get a full glass, or is it like in the movies/on TV, and end up with somewhat less? I know I'd be mightily pissed if I paid for a 16oz beer and the glass wasn't filled to the top.... and then there was an inch or more of suds as well.
It sure don't equate to value for money if you're getting less than the prescribed amount per glass size, so fill me in, guys and gals, is it really like the movies and on TV?
On another note, I like to try beers from all around the world, and there is a bottle shop not far from me that specialises in overseas beers and spirits, etc, and I'd like to hear from anyone in the US [and elsewhere] if there are any boutique type beers that they could recommend. I've tried a lot of mainstream beers from all over, so now I'm interested in lesser known brews of quality.
