If you ordered a small Stella Artois beer at Red Robin during the last five years, you may be due a refund.

The restaurant chain has settled a class-action suit that charged between June 25, 2017 and July 21, 2022, Red Robin served patrons a portion of beer that was smaller than advertised. The suit claims the beer was served in a Stella Artois chalice that was not large enough to hold the entire serving of beer for which customers paid.

The suit, filed on behalf of Red Robin customers, claimed customers who ordered a small Stella Artois beer were overcharged. Claims include “breach of contract, breach of the implied covenant of good faith and fair deadline, violation of state consumer protection laws, and unjust enrichment.”

The company agreed to pay $450,000 to settle the case but has not admitted any wrongdoing. Red Robin said its actions were entirely legal under state and federal laws.

Beer-drinking customers will be entitled to compensation in the form of $3 per beer, up to five beers. Those five beers will not require any proof of purchase. 

Class members who claim six or more beers during that five-year period will have to come up with some receipts.

The deadline for submitting a claim is Dec. 23, 2022. Here’s the link to the claim form.
