Four free ounces of beer at Qwest Field? Not for long.

Thanks to the website Deadspin.com, a video has been making the rounds today of fans at Qwest Field pointing out that the two different beer sizes you can buy at games are in fact the same size. They are appalled that, for $1.25 more, the “big” beer they’re getting is no bigger than the “small” beer.

Only as it turns out, the small beer, meant to be 16 ounces, was in fact a 20 ouncer, which meant those of you buying the smaller beers were getting a deal. Now that the video has brought this subject to the Seahawks’ attention, however, expect that to change soon.

Here is the statement from First and Goal, which operates Qwest Field. Video is below.

“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 playoff game to ensure all fans receive the amount they purchase, and we will charge the 16 oz. price.”
