There are establishments here in the US that sell 'pounders' of 'beer',
i.e. 16oz. glasses.  The reference is usually to something that only
loosely resembles beer - we're back to sex-in-a-canoe jokes here.
Establishments that server real beer most often refer to them as pints,
although there is evidence some are only 14oz.
