Large vs small beer at Qwest FieldJanuary 7, 2011 @ 4:42 pm (Updated: 3:46 pm - 3/28/11 )
Going to the Seahawks playoff game, and planning to enjoy a beer there?
A Facebook friend put together a compelling demonstration to show what you get if you order a large beer at Qwest Field, compared with a small beer.
The price difference? The large beer costs $1.25 more. The volume difference? See Richard Hart's video:
First and Goal, which operates Qwest Field & Event Center, released this statement:
We received a copy of the YouTube video showing the quantity of liquid served in the 16 oz. beer cup is the same quantity that fits into the 20 oz. beer cup. This is the first time we have been alerted to this fact. Upon our internal investigation this afternoon, we discovered the cups that are marked 16 oz. hold 20 oz. of liquid. Fans who purchased a 16 oz. beer actually received 20 oz. of beer for the 16 oz. price. Fans that purchased the 20 oz. beer received the amount they purchased. We are working with Levy Restaurants to follow up with the cup vendor about the measurement and to determine how long this has been occurring at Qwest Field. We are determined to find a solution as quickly as possible. In the meantime, we will serve domestic beer in the 20 oz. cup at tomorrow's [Saturday's] playoff game to ensure all fans receive the amount they purchase, and we will charge the 16 oz. price.
