Casino fined over mislabeled beer

TTB had this news tidbit passed his way recently:

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Ever wonder what the difference is between “tastes great” and “less filling?”

In one Atlantic City casino, it’s $5,000.

That’s how much the New Jersey Casino Control Commission fined Resorts Atlantic City on Wednesday for having mislabeled beer keg taps at one casino bar on two occasions last year.

In March, one tap was labeled “Miller Lite” and another one “Miller Genuine Draft.” But both taps were connected to a keg containing the light beer.

Regulators say a similar situation in August occurred in which taps labeled “Coors Original” and “Coors Light” were both dispensing the full-calorie, full-carb brew.

Resorts declined to comment.

Resorts might not comment, but you know The Thirsty Beagle will: Next time you’re at a casino and the choices are Miller Lite, Miller Genuine Draft, Coors Original and Coors Light, go to a new casino.
