Whatever you do just don’t call it a Stein in Germany. I did and the waiter looked at me like I’d just shagged his granny and pissed on his kids. :lol: 

You asked him for ''a rock/stone of beer''.

Everyone, meet Genevieve Roseanne, who arrived on 23rd December. 

No booze for me last night. Early morning as usual.

Present from Uncle Lenny.

Exactly. :lol: It’s a valid name but it only refers to the clay mugs that you can get. Like these.

The big glasses are called Maß beer.

Maß simply means measurement. The glass you refer to is ein Krug, or ein Maßkrug. It is however perfectly correct to merely say Maß though as a sort of contraction.

Das Maß, measurement or unit or size,

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Maß

But I suppose it has been synonymized.

Thinking about it, it is exactly the same for us. We don't go into a pub and order a ''pint in a glass of'' wifebeater or whatever your tipple is, which would be the equivalent of ein Maßkrug. Pint, the measurement and the glass have become synonyms through usage of time.

What a strange thing porn is. Nobody ever gets any appliances fixed. The plumber always arrives but nowt gets fixed. In Pornland there must be all these LAesque houses with knackered washing machines and sinks. And people always wait for the bus but never get on it - they've left before the bus arrives! 

no wonder these women get stuck in all sorts of stuff, only for these men to take advantage of

Eszett? Same as you would a -ss. That is orthographical, i.e. nothing to do with the spoken language as such but writing. At a pinch you can actually substitute -ss.

''Headingley 1981'' is not bullshit. And I would've thought he'd discuss Shreaded Wheat before Brexit.
