I've only looked at a few pages, but on nearly every one there's some jaw-dropping howler. Whoever is writing this stuff, whether Papazian himself or someone else, please just stop writing about British and European beer. Stop misrepresenting things you clearly don't understand. And don't fill the gaps in your knowledge by just making stuff up.
On the page about beer glassware, we learn:
The Imperial pint was adopted as an official measure by British Parliament in 1824. Shortly thereafter, the "nonick" version of the Imperial pint glass was produced for use in pubs.
The nonik glass was introduced in the 1960s.
Maybe "shortly" means "140 years later" in American English, I can't be absolutely sure.
Or maybe Charlie Papazian just pulls this nonsense out of his arse.
