I'm sure the vendor will do the right thing, and reduce the size of the $4 cup.

While not three dollars worth, there is more space in the large cup.

I saw the .au and tried to figure out who'd been dumb enough to try this in Australia.  No way are our punters smart enough to deal with more than one size cup at a game . . .

Um, so at one stadium in one of the least populous states, this is the case. At most stadiums that I have been to, it is not the case. Either way, the beer is vastly overpriced, and you're best off getting a buzz before hand and just nursing it with a token beer during the game.

You're partially correct. The price of one will change.

Apparently there are still stadium operators still stupid enough to try and pull of these types of stunts, even after they got called out on it a few years back.

Free market at work, people. No messy government overhead or anything. Right?

But the cup on the left is taller. It must hold more beer.

In most of the staduims I've been in with the small they just hand you the cup, but with the large they hand you the cup and the can.  Also the small can is smaller than the large can, so even if the cup is the same size, the beer isn't.  Now if they used the same can for a small and a large, then that would be an easy indicator.

Of course this is based on sitting in the seats, not ordering from the concession stands.

You may want to be sitting down for this, subby.

both wrong.  They actually did (or say they will be doing) the right thing.....

CenturyLink Arena is moving to 24oz cups for the large beers immediately.   At this time, they do not plan to change the price

Just say NO to sham glasses

The top of a tapered glass holds more than the bottom.  The space in the top of the 20oz is bigger than it looks.

Then you get something like tricycleracer arguing for a beer with no head.

Keep your bartender honest? How about putting a line on the glass which will allow for a head or requiring establishments to say you're getting a 12oz beer for $3? "Small beer" "Large beer" allows for this crap in TFA

That's why it's better when it's the kind of stand that only has bottles, and a 'regular' is a 12-oz., while a 'large' is a bomber. When they open the bottle in front of you and pour it, it's not quite so easy. I'd be PISSED if the beer vendor at my local sporting event was pulling this shiat AND getting away with it.

The Code of Hammurabi called for the death penalty for any bartender caught watering down beer, so he would probably have the offending vendor killed over this, too. Maybe we should look to the Code of Hammurabi instead of British Common Law when we find something that our current laws don't cover.
