G'day Gerry,

"Stubby" is a word mostly used outside the pub ... and likely to be in a song, while the beer glass sizes for "middy" and "schooner" are less commonly sung.

One problemn with 'defining' them in the Glossary is that they are often different sizes in different states... Now, if someone wants to fund me to do the primary research (travel, accommodation, sundry local middies, schooners, handles, pints, long beers, short beers ... etcetera, &c ...) I might update the appropriate sections!

Regard(les)s,

Bob
