Please consider yourself confirmed with the addition that a Darwin Stubbie is about two litres or 7.7 standard drinksJoelline said:In Australia, a stubbie is a single-serving sized bottle of beer. In N. Australia, a "Darwin stubbie" is a gigantic bottle of beer (I'm not quite sure how much bigger than a stubbie it is, but I'd say 3-5 times as big).
Wait for an Aussie to confirm this.
This one selling on ebay is 2 litres, so it would seems that there are different sizes. The one thing you can be certain of is that it's much bigger than the "normal" stubbie.MarcB said:Thanks for the information. It looks like there is some disagreemet on the size. Perhaps the bottle on e-bay posted by Brioche is the most reliable?
Is it possible that the size differences are due to the difference between U.S. liters and Australian litresCharles Costante said:
Thanks BriocheBrioche said:In the days before Australia went metric, standard wine and beer bottles held 26 imperial fluid ounces of beer =738 ml.
The original Darwin stubbie was equivalent to 3 bottles of beer, so not quite 2.25 litres. Wine was commonly sold in "flagons" equivalent to 3 bottles.
