WATCH: Beer Ripoff? Hockey fans sue arena
3 0

A group of hockey fans in Boise, Idaho, are suing their local arena after it emerged that patrons have been duped into thinking that a $7 beer contains more brew than a $4 beer for the past five years.

The lawsuit states that CenturyLink Arena, home of the Idaho Steelheads hockey team, defrauded customers by charging $3 more for a tall, narrow cup advertised as a ‘large’ that actually holds the same amount of beer as the shorter, wider cup described as a ‘small.’

    Sneaky. Someone sat down, had a meeting about this and made the decision to essencially charge $3 more for a plastic cup! I would say its consumers protection agency issue. If this were in Ontario, they would get seriously fined I think, maybe even jail time through the Ontario consumers protection agency!
