Coincidence Of The Three Pint Beer Glasses

Pub glasses

Last month I published a post Are Coca-Cola Drinkers The World's Worst Litter Louts? I've now come across a new form of 'litter' - pub pint glasses!

Over the past week we have found three glasses by the roadside: a Fosters, a Carlsberg and a Crabbies - as per the photo above. A coincidence or a new trend?

After we had found two we 'knew' we'd find a third. So what's happening? Are late night drinkers using their final pint as a take-away, so they can sup their drink of choice while walking home or on their way to the taxi rank?

We took the glasses home with us, put them in the dishwasher and we'll no doubt use them at some time or other. We have no idea what pub, or pubs they originated from.

I'd rather find glasses than all of those squashed Coca-Cola tins I wrote about before, but I suppose they are still a form of litter and have the potential to be dangerous if they were to get broken.

I can't see any real significance, with the coincidence of finding three glasses. Though I did read on the Science Nordic website that "three beers a day keep the doctor away." Mind you, on the Daily Mail website, I also read that "Just three pints of beer a week can dull your brain by 20%." You pay your money and take your choice!

Cheers!

  1. Beer is recommended for "nursing" mothers. I've never heard of a health benefit from cola. And I would have done the same thing, taken those glasses home for a run in the dishwasher and future use. It's a sustainable for the planet practice. Enjoy the story to tell, each time you raise a glass. :D

    1. Beer for nursing mothers: hadn't heard that. Though my father, when he was in hospital years back, was advised to have a Guiness to help build up his strength.

  2. Better something that you can use than squashed soda cans! And what is it, anyway, about things coming in 3s?

    1. The only worry to me is that glasses can get broken and used in a wrong way.

  3. It's funny how Fosters is not a popular beer in Australia,but it is overseas for some reason.20 years ago in may have been slightly popular in the southern states of Australia,but you really have to go out of your way to drink a Foster's beer in Oz these days.

    1. Interesting what you say about Fosters, it's advertised a lot in the UK and seems to be in most pubs on tap. When in Mallorca, on the first night, we just asked for a beer with our evening meal and we got Fosters! I was expecting a Spanish beer San Miguel or something similar.

  4. Oops! That should read "it may" instead of "in may".It's no more popular in May over here than in any other month,but I would have to check the stats on that one.-)
