A report in the Toronto Star found you may not be getting what you pay for when you order a pint at your local bar.
A new law passed last month called Measurement Canada’s Fairness at the Pumps Act says bars or restaurants serving a pint that contains less than 19.5 ounces of liquid can face fines up to $2,000.
A pint is 20 oz so the 19.5 doesn’t account for head.
The report found that out of 15 downtown Toronto establishments only 3 were serving a full 20 ounces.
Several came close, at around 18 ounces, while others were only serving 14 ounces.
Measurement Canada receives fewer than 10 complaints a year related to draught beer.
