The aim of this study is to estimate the impact of serving lager, ale and cider in straight-sided glasses on alcohol consumption in public houses and bars. Methods Twenty-four public houses and bars in the UK will be recruited to take part in this cluster randomised multi-period crossover trial. All participating venues will perform two intervention periods (A) and two control periods (B) in a random order. Six venues will be randomised to each of the four possible orders: 1) BABA; 2) BAAB; 3)

Each period will last two weeks and will involve serving lager, ale and cider in either straight-sided glasses (intervention condition) or the venue's usual glasses (control condition). Data on the volume (in ml) of lager, ale and cider sold will be collected and compared between intervention and control periods. Discussion The results of this study will provide evidence for the extent to which serving lager, ale and cider in straight-sided glasses can reduce the consumption of these alcoholic drinks in a naturalistic setting. This will have implications for local licensing policies which include strategies to reduce alcohol-related harm.
