AUGUSTA – A pint means 16 ounces and a bill that would enforce that is now headed to the Governor’s desk.
Democratic Senator John Patrick of Rumford sponsored the bill that will ensure that when you order a pint a beer you get a true pint. Patrick “Maine people should know they’re getting what they pay for and not an ounce less. if you pay for a pint, then you should get 16-ounces of beer not a cheater pint”.
The bill directs liquor inspectors to add this enforcement to a punch list of things to review when on site at bars.
