Definitions for "Schooner"
Keywords:  aft, fore, foremast, mast, topsail
Originally, a small, sharp-built vessel, with two masts and fore-and-aft rig. Sometimes it carried square topsails on one or both masts and was called a topsail schooner. About 1840, longer vessels with three masts, fore-and-aft rigged, came into use, and since that time vessels with four masts and even with six masts, so rigged, are built. Schooners with more than two masts are designated three-masted schooners, four-masted schooners, etc. See Illustration in Appendix.
a two masted vessel, fore-and-aft rigged on both masts. Some schooners had square topsails.
A sailboat with two or more masts in which the mainmast is behind the smaller one or ones
Keywords:  beer, lager, osher, cobwebbed, shy
A large goblet or drinking glass, -- used for lager beer or ale.
the largest measure of beer available at an Australian public house, not too far shy of a British pint. Theoretically the schooner glass is capable of holding fluids other than beer, but it is rarely employed to do so. Subject of one of Osher's most poetic lines: "The glass of his drained schooner was cobwebbed internally with shreds of dried foam."
an informal unit of liquid volume. A schooner is a large tumbler or drinking glass holding about 400 milliliters or 13.5 U.S. fluid ounces. Similarly, in Queensland, New South Wales, and the Northern Territory (Australia) a schooner of beer holds 425 milliliters. In South Australia, however, a schooner is only 285 milliliters.
