Pony

This is the name for a short, cylindrical glass. This name for a glass serving of this size is particularly popular in Australia. It is a smaller version of its cousin the Middy.

The typical volume for this type of glass is 5 U.S. fluid ounces (140 milliliters).

One story associated with how this glass type got its name is related to sports. It is said that small portions of beer were required for quick consumption so that one would not miss the action at a horse race track.
