Beer drinkers of America, unite. Four fans of the Idaho Steelheads hockey team have sued the franchise’s home venue, CenturyLink Arena, for defrauding customers on their beer prices.
According to the AP, the fans allege that concessioners charged $4 for small beers and $7 for large. The catch: while the cups may have been different sizes, both small and large containers held the same amount of liquid. They seek damages of $10,000 to compensate purchases dating back as far as five years.
“While different shapes, both cup sizes hold substantially the same amount of liquid and are not large versus small in actual capacity,” the group’s attorney, Wyatt Johnson, wrote in the lawsuit. “Defendants knowingly sold each of their beers in a similar manner at each event held at the arena where beer was sold for at least the last five years.”
CenturyLink Arena has denied intentionally trying to rip off customers. The arena will now purchase 24oz cups, as opposed to the previous 20oz larges. Regardless of the case’s outcome, the plaintiffs won one for the little man: more beer for fans.
