comment How did South Australia come to have smaller measures of beer?
I doubt anyone can answer this with any veracity. most likely it is just something to mark up as regional differences. Sort of how all soda is called "coke" in the southern part of the US. Some bar in Southern Australia probably served pints in the wrong glass for a while and it became the standard there. Or else the wikipedia article is wrong.

less tubing etc to have to worry about cleaning as well I'd imagine.

comment Why do stouts foam so much when you pour them over ice cream?
I don't know if nucleation sites is a real thing but this answer sounds legit! And now I have something else to learn about.

comment Does use of Isinglass require special mention on the beer?
I don't know if it is legally required - I don't remember ever seeing it on a bottle I've bought. However, ethically, I think it would be a good idea and would show respect to your customers (particularly of the vegan variety).

comment Do cans change the taste of beer?
I heard a good quote once about cans.. They are essentially small kegs and our general pre-disposition against cans is just a cultural one and not one based on any intrinsic quality of the beer. That being said our expectations alter our perceptions (the brain is a crazy thing) so if you think something tastes better in a can and you know your drinking from a can you'll enjoy the canned beer more than a person who expects the canned beer to taste worse.

comment Why do steins have lids?
I will say that not only are they mostly decorative today but if you want a usable stein+lid that you should make sure the lid will open enough to get out of your way before you buy the stein. I was gifted one and it is purely a decorative mug at this point due to the lid being in the way.
