Just back from a holiday to Italy and can report that it is not all bland lager over there. Happily tripped over a beer festival in Venice on our first night. Italian craft brewing is doing well. Plenty of stouts and porters available as well as reds and ambers alongstide the more traditional blonde beers

Putting the cost aside, I find a schooner is a perfect size for drinking the stronger craft beers. Also if you aren't on the stronger ones. you can taste more of them

1/3 or 1/2 is ideal for a festival where it’s nice to try some new beers without getting completly b*****ed too quickly. Serving up an Italian lager that would cost 60p in an Italian supermarket for a hugely inflated price in the uk must be close to being mugged, I quote the supermarket price to highlight that we are not dealing with a high value product but we are charged a premium price to consume it in a uk restaurant and they attempt to hide the price with the short measure, the same scam as the ever shrinking chocolate bar and snack sizes. What happened to family sized tubes of toothpaste?

Cripes. I used to drink sherry by the schooner... they seem to have gotten bigger!

A Canadian schooner is almost a litre. That's probably their Scottish heritage showing through. Not surprisingly, Mercan schooners are smaller and ill defined.
Be careful if you ever fancy a sherry in Canada, Neil.
