Contributor's comments: Darwin Stubbie isn't a usual measure. I think everyone in Australia knows what a Darwin Stubbie is (We do in Brisbane) - it is a novelty item only. Measures that large are not sold anywhere else so you won't have local terms.

Contributor's comments: Here in Exeter, Devon SW UK, a stubbie is a pathetic little bottle of (usually French or Belgian) lager, about 2/3 the capacity of a can of coke... talk about opposites!
