It is interesting to know that internationally there are four different types of yards. Thus, for example, is the American yard, which is equivalent to 0.914401 meters; the official English yard, which is variable; the American industrial yard, which corresponds to 0.9144 meters, and the informal English yard that is equal to 0.9143 meters.

In the rest of the world, this measure is not usually used, although in some cases it is maintained given its ingrained use in North American or British lands. That is the case of football , where the yard plays a central role in the regulation.

The yard is also a measure or type of glass used to drink beer , equivalent to three pints (each pint equals about 556 milliliters). The glass is very elongated and widens in its mouth, and is often attached to a wooden support to prevent it from tipping over.

However, we cannot ignore the fact that the size of the beer yard varies from one bar to another. Thus, especially in the United Kingdom there are stores that offer one with a capacity of 1.7 liters while in others, especially in restaurants, it is a bit smaller and is presented with 1.2 liters.
