What size is your schooner?
It's a generic name for a number of sizes depending on which state you are in.
In the good old days in WA before metrication a schooner and a "pint" were much the same thing.
Others I remember were "Pony, Glass, Middy, Pot, but it's been that long since I drank in a Pub that I could be wrong with them too.

Yes that is the problem in that corner country region as to drink sizes
I find it easier to just ask for a large beer to save all the confusion. LOL

a south australian interpretation.....our "schooner" = 285ml, our "pint" = 425 ml. and i am sure that they do have "Coopers" on tap, was there a couple of weeks ago, but i drink stubbies which was from memory about $6 or $7. And it was a Coopers Pale Ale.
not sure about the reference to mexicans, i presume allan was talking about those infernal victorians that seem to infiltrate our state.
(tongue in cheek before any mexican victorian gets too precious)

I recall drinking stubbies there. Do they even have tap beer there? Either way you've got to have a coopers on the cooper.

Hi pepper
Was there a couple of months ago, no idea on the cost of a scooner but stubbies were $7.50 and a carton was $70.

Depends on which size schooner you are referring to and also what beer but it is up around that price.
You just cop it sweet and enjoy the place, no different to getting hit up at the footy or a fancy resturant.

My mate just returned from the Cape and a carton of Cruisers was about $160 at Bamaga

well, I suppose you always have the option of going and sitting in your camp being miserable and drinking water ... you can pay $10 or more for a beer in Kalgoorlie...

When we were there we really enjoyed the town, shower, camp, pub and a few frosties, didn't give a whatsee what the cost, I wasn't going to get back out there any time soon!

They all need to make a profit to stay there and be ready for the next customer!

Thanks to them for looking after us.

Charged $6.20 for a stubby of Carlton Draught in October 2012.
Given the fridge was playing up & it was 35c in the shade, it was well worth the investment!!

Try buying a schooner in places like Karratha, Hedland or Broome, you will be lucky to get one for less than $10
For us oldies a schooner over here is 15oz and a pint is 20oz.

A Pony = 5oz
A Beer = 7oz
A Middie =10 oz = A Pot
A Pot =10oz = A Middie
A Schooner = 15oz except SA where 15oz is a pint
A Pint = 20oz except SA where it is 15 oz

By rights the larger the glass , cheaper the beer price by the oz /ml ,or thats how it used to be due to less glasses needing washing = wages.

Yes and no with the SA pint.
They also have real pints but you specify imperial. Also they often have imperial pint specials. Once again they specify.
It seems increasingly they are adopting the imperial pint as a real pint
