Isn't it a disgusting, ugly & filthy habit? It seems to be now the norm now, even with women, in American movies.
Surely no AnswerBankers would do such a thing .... err, would they?

Where did it come from? I recently saw a clip from "Cheers" & 'Norm' & his friend the postman were definitely drinking from large glass steins there at the end of the bar.

Personally I dislike drinking from the bottle but its nothing to do with being disgusting or anything I just think beer tastes better when poured. I'd never have a bottle out anyway, always draft. That tastes even better.
//There is a pub I know in Devon which refuses to allow beer bottles to cross the bar.//

Yes I've been in boozers like that all over. Bottles become quite a hefty weapon in a pagga more so than a glass. They can be hurled further too.
In the good old days of free school milk, all children drank it out of the bottle if I remember right.
Ah yes. The good old days of rickets and polio and other horrid things.
Waxed paper straw, Canary.
/// The good old days of rickets and polio ///

What a silly comment. Rickets and polio were well on the way out towards the end of the free milk scheme. Furthermore the free milk was to make sure that all children got enough calcium, protein, and fat to help nourish them, thereby improving their health.
Oh yes Hopkirk, I'd forgotten those. My bad.
I prefer to drink out of glass, but wouldn't object to drinking from bottle occasionally.
I don't drink beer but I think it depends on the situation. In a restaurant, definitely not - at a beach bar or barbeque, fine.

I don't like to see women drinking pints.
I don't tend to drink from the beer bottle, but I've no qualms about doing so were a glass unavailable. Seems oversensitive.

OG, rather than go without, & in the state of need, even "over-sensitive" I, would drink from a bottle, I have certainly drank wine from a bottle - in circumstances I won't elaborate on, but a wine bottle has in any case a foil or plastic cork cover on the top 2 inches.

Alcohol is a disinfectant so even at the weak strength of beer a good policy would be to wipe the top of the bottle before sticking it in your gob. :0)

//That’s impossible, could happen in literally any pub, bar or hostelry in the world.//

Indeed it could. But you can lessen the likelihood if you’re a bit choosy.

//In the good old days of free school milk, all children drank it out of the bottle if I remember right.//

You remember wrong. When I was at primary school our daily one third of a pint of milk came in glass bottles with a foil top. Teacher had a device which made a straw-sized hole in the foil top and we were supplied with straws with which to drink the milk. When I went to “big” school the supply was provided in waxed paper cartons (similar in size and shape to a “Jubbly” or “Jungle Juice). These had a small hole, covered with transparent plastic, which could be pierced by the straw that was attached to the carton.

//Furthermore the free milk was to make sure that all children got enough calcium, protein, and fat to help nourish them, thereby improving their health.//

Which of course was, and still is, the responsibility of the child’s parents, not the school or the government. Hence the cessation of free school milk for (IIRC) over sevens by one M. Thatcher when she was Secretary of State for Education, earning her the soubriquet “Milk Snatcher Thatcher.”
NJ, you missed out on the fun.

If you circled your thumb and finger round the foil cap and wiggled it round, you could lift it off intact. Take it to the playground, pinch the edge between two fingers and vigorously flick it. It would then fly across the playground like a miniature UFO.
I see Zac got his nasty remark in towards NJ.Such a big chip on the shoulder you have lovey.
Oooh, I have a stalker! Very flattered.
Theres only one of them and thats you doing the rounds trying to destroy posts.I see NJ ignored you:)))
What, destroy posts where people (ah hem) say they’re not sure about an obvious scam post on Facebook but then suddenly contradict themselves, Sancakes? Sound familiar?
You need new glasses or if you don't wear them you should.May be NJ ignores you because he knows he can if he cares to, wrap you up in knots.:)))))
