Stop me if you have heard this one before: If you buy beer at a sporting event, it might be watered down.

People have been making that assumption for years — heck, for as long as I can remember I have been hearing that rumor.

Turns out it could be true! The Seattle Seahawks have been outed by KOMO news in Seattle.

According to their report, they had a lab test beer sold outside of the stadium and beer sold within the stadium to test for alcohol content.

Within days they got their results:

Stella Artois:
5.0% advertised ABV
4.8% tested

Bud Light:
4.2% advertised
3.9% tested

Redhook Brewery No Equal:
5.2% advertised
4.8% tested

According to the story

The company refused to share any contracts with vendors and the concessionaire Delaware North Sports Service.

Have you ever assumed you were drinking watered down beer?
