Real pints of beer?

Any one have recommendations for bars/restaurants that serve real pints of beer in Northern Virginia? I'm getting tired of these places that serve draught beer in a 12 oz. or 14 oz. "pint glass". Had an experience at a Del Ray eatery where a buddy and I ordered 2 beers on tap. They brought his beer, but told me they were out of the one I had ordered. So, the waitress made a beer recommendation, but when she came back, she had a 12 oz. bottled beer along with a glass that was the same size as my friend who ordered the draught beer. And yes when I filled the glass it went all the way to the top with only minimal head on the beer. Small glasses...hmph. To be fair the beers were not advertised as "pints" but there is just something about it that feels misleading (are they downsizing beer now?!). Sorry for the negative energy here, but I'm trying to find the places that take pride not only in the beer they serve, but in how they serve it.
