A Wexford pub’s ingenious way to get men to halve their beer consumption
Here in the UK men are being told they should drink considerably less – 14 units of alcohol a week – than men in Ireland (21.2 units) by the UK’s chief medical officers. Read more about the new limits here: www.theirishworld.com
The Simon Lambert & Sons pub in Wexford has come up with a crafty new half pint glass, which they launched on their Facebook page. The pub said it came up with its own solution to, as it observed, the ‘shame’ felt by men when they ordered a half and not the, presumably, more manly full pint.
The posts went viral in a matter of hours. The pub responded with this post:
But there has been a catch, says the pub.Because of all the attention the glasses received… they were all stolen! They can be purchased on back order here: www.itsmagic.ie
Then Simon Lambert & Sons released this statement:
“We want to release these latest statistics on what shall be now known as #HalfpintGate. What a way to kick of 2016.
“The reaction #HalfPint has received over the passed few days have been nothing short of phenomenal. We have been getting calls from old friends slagging us off as well as news & radio, glasswear being robbed left, right & centre, sales of our own #YellowBellyBeer is through the roof, glasswear sales people love us, barmen now hate us.”
