Mug pint and liter

A mug with information for quarter liter (25 cl), half UK pint, half liter (50 cl) and UK pint. This one comes from a concert of a British band. It is worth noting that if it were filled with one UK pint, it would be very difficult to carry without spilling something.

Examples: one liter is equal to 1.76 UK pints and 2.113 US pints. The British pint is about 1.2 times the size of the American pint.

The British pint is also known as the imperial pint. The US pint refers to the US liquid pint variant. A US dry pint, which is hardly used anymore, had 551 milliliters. The half liter is sometimes also called a metric pint in English. The word pint comes from the French pinte, where it now also refers to half a liter. The Australian pint has 570 milliliters, which is the British pint rounded to a metric value. To make the confusion complete, there are other very different sizes for the pint in various other countries, from the Flemish pintje, which corresponds to a quarter of a liter, to the Scottish pint at just under 1.7 liters, which is now obsolete and only of historical interest.

Here you can convert metric volume units into customary and imperial units.
