HackerNoon is trying to settle a debate: do the international (non-UK) folks order a “pint” of beer, or just generally connect a “pint” with drinking? Read this team thread and let us know where you stand.

This Slogging thread by Guy, richard-kubina, Mónica Freitas, Kien, David and Limarc occurred in hackernoon's official #random channel, and has been edited for readability.

Trying to settle a debate: do the international (non-UK) folks here order a “pint” of beer, or just generally connect a “pint” with drinking? I suspect it’s a British thing, but we’re throwing together a fun little project and not sure if ya’ll would connect the dots with a name like “Pint Finder” :savage-joy:

Aye! we use "pint" here.
Though waiters will usually ask "tall or short?" and the short is a pint

Mónica FreitasAug 9, 2022, 2:00 PM

I know about it but only used it in the uk

GuyAug 9, 2022, 2:25 PM

Richard-kubina, the SHORT is a pint?!?! How much is the tall :savage-joy:

GuyAug 9, 2022, 2:25 PM

And I thought the Scottish were the drinkers of the world…

richard-kubinaAug 9, 2022, 2:29 PM

22 or 24 ounces!

When I lived in Nottingham, I usually just associated a pint = a drink, and will say “can I get another pint?” for another drink hahah

GuyAug 9, 2022, 6:58 PM

^^^ this is the correct answer 🍻

KienAug 9, 2022, 7:11 PM

hahah I am the target audience here 😂

Pint Finder is a solid name! I imagine the *app finds you your next pint

DavidAug 9, 2022, 9:55 PM

In America, I think people say beer more than pint (anti-metric system cultural bias) but most still know what a pint is

When naming a thing, reading more about words' etymology is also helpful https://www.etymonline.com/word/pint

Yeah in Canada we normally say “I’ll have a beer” not “I’ll have a pint”. We would say that if they ask us the size though
