Full Yard Glass, This is our most popular yardie. New Zealand made. Yardie is shaped so liquid flows out evenly. Comes with a wooden wall stand. Comes in a well padded box. Please note we only send yardies by courier as NZ Post does not guarantee fragile parcels.

A Yard of Ale is normally between 30 and 36 inches in length, horn shaped and with a bulbous base. The original capacity ranged from 1.5 to 2.0 litres.

Drinking the Yard is an art in itself. The bulb of the glass should be firmly and steadily raised by the right hand extended as far as possible along the stem. To satisfy the strictested standards there should be a continuous intake of beer by the consumer from the time the glass is raised until it is held triumphantly upside down as a sign of victory, called flooring the long glass.
