“Tallboy” Finally Added to Dictionary

It’s about time!

The English language continues to expand with Merriam-Webster announcing that the word “tallboy” has been added to the dictionary!

A tallboy is officially defined as “a tall cylindrical can for beverages, such as beer, usually measuring 16 inches.”

Grubstreet’s eagle eye actually caught the new addition, where the staff has an issue with the word “tallboy” not being used exclusively to talk about beer cans. I mean… I guess you can put other things in tallboys, but beer is really the only thing that matters… right?
