A handful of Idaho hockey fans have sued a Boise, Idaho, arena saying they were duped into thinking a $7 beer contains more brew than a $4 beer.
The lawsuit says 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.”
Four fans filed the suit in Boise’s 4th District Court against Block 22 LLC, which does business as CenturyLink Arena. Brady Peck, Michele Bonds and William and Brittany Graham are seeking $10,000 in damages.
Peck says in the suit he’s attended at least 30 events over the past three years at the arena and that he’s purchased beer each time. The other three say they bought at least one large $7 beer at the venue over the years.
The suit came after another hockey fan posted a video on YouTube of what the fan said was a beer purchased at CenturyLink Arena. That video shows a patron holding a large cup of beer and pouring it into an empty small cup. In both cups, the beer reaches nearly to the brim.
