I should have mentioned that, although our beer *bottles* are 341 mL,
which is 12 *British* fluid ounces, beer *cans* are 355 mL, which I

canned beer is a bit more expensive than bottled beer, per unit volume.
Of course, cans can't be cleaned and reused like bottles. Most people
just recycle the cans through the municipal system.
