BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Only hockey fans would think of this.

A handful of Idaho hockey fans is suing a Boise minor league 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.”

The fans are seeking $10,000 -- which is a lot of beer money, no matter how it’s served.

Fans took to YouTube to prove they were being duped into paying for the same amount.
