When you go to a pub for a beer you can usually choose between standard sizes: pints and half pints or bottles of 33, 50 and 75 cl. When you are very thirsty you can sometimes even choose an Oktoberfest-
Last month, the brewery of Ripponden, in the UK, celebrated the passing of the Tour de France with a world record attempt. The Fleece Countryside Inn, a pub in Ripponden, West Yorkshire, was en route of the famous race - agreat occassion to serve the biggest beer in the world.
The huge glass holds a total of 3664 pints - one for each kilometer of the Tour - which corresponds to approximately 2080 liters. A new record, recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records. The former record was held by a glass created in California in 2009 with a capacity of “only” 1499 liters.
If you feel like a glass of beer now, we recommend you the Bormioli Rocco beer glasses. Smaller and sure easier to handle, they are ideal for a cold beer with friends.
