Subject: RE: Tankards
I had a nickel tankard once, a bloody great quart mug. Certainly held a lot of beer, but unfortunatley made it go flat in no time at all.

As for glass bottoms in tankards, to pre-empt any turn of the conversation that way, it WASN'T to avoid getting the King's Shilling slipped into your drink. It was so you could see if the beer was cloudy.
