What’s a “Short Pour?”

In beer parlance, a “short pour” is a seven- or 12-ounce glass of beer, rather than the usual 16 ounces. Those of us who stylize ourselves as “beer geeks” and are in it for the taste, not the drunk, utilize them as a way to taste more varieties of beer in a single sitting.

I’m Bill Toscano, and like many most folks, when I was in high school and college, I drank to get drunk. You remember Haffenreffer Kingers, PBRs or Natty Ice, don’t you? I’ve moved on to drinking craft beer, and have been at that for about 13 years. Please let me know what you think about my musings.

    Hey Bill,

    My wife and I chatted with you at Henry St last night. It was very nice to meet you and talk about all the new and old craft beer establishments in Saratoga and Glens falls. Also enjoyed your expert take/taste on the beers themselves.
    We’ll probably see you again sometime.

    Bob & Diane
