On this side of the pond, its 16, but the ounces are avordupoise(check my 
spelling on that one:) std, not troy.  So here, yes, a pints a pound.

Same here, its 12 or 16 oz cans or 12, 16, 32 oz in bottles.  Pricing 
sounds similar, a 6 pack of 12 oz throwaway bottles is around 6 dollars.  
I don't drink out of alu containers if there's another choice due to the 
alu-alzheimers connection.  But I am a 1 or 2 a night alcoholic, so I do 
partake regularly.
