Local Bar Only Offers Jugs to Highlight Sustainability

Local Bar Only Offers Jugs to Highlight Sustainability

A local taproom has ditched pint glasses, citing a new-found emphasis on saving the planet as the reason. 

“By only serving jugs,” explained the new manager, Beerface McGee, “we can save shit tonnes of water on washing, as well as reduce the amount of glass purchased by the bar.” 

The new manager said that people who ordered pints “were only just doing so to pretend that they aren’t alcoholics. We both know that they want a jug. And they end up drinking a jug’s worth anyway.” 

The new policy is designed to save customer’s money and save the planet’s water. “We’re down from running our dishwasher 24 times a day to only about 12,” said the manager, “I consider that a huge win.” 

In unrelated news, drunk and disorderly reports around the bar have doubled in the week since the new policy. “I don’t see a connection there,” said the manager.
