Anger as fancy beer served in ordinary pint glass

THE purchase of an expensive European lager was ruined by being served in a normal pint glass.

Friends looked on in horror as Tom Booker was handed the FrauWeiser Wheat Gold in a common pint glass before being told, ‘the fancy glasses are all in the wash’.

Booker said: “If you’re paying more than a fiver for a pint, you want a bit of pomp and splendour with it.

“If I ordered champagne and they gave it to me in a mug, I’d be well within my rights to refuse to pay for it.”

He added: “I don’t want the barman sacked or anything, but he should be suspended without pay for a week.”

Professor Henry Brubaker, of the Institute for Studies, said: “The correct, fancy pint glass would have also made the pint look twice as big.”
