Except "only" costing 30¢ more than a normal cup that's probably less than 1¢ is not inconsequential....

Yeah, you're right, that actually is a pretty substantial increase. They'd have to sell advertising to offset it.

But they DO advertise... Those little magnet buttons at the bottom of the cup. Of course, nobody will REALLY read that.

Cool idea though. I've worked pro sporting events and concerts as fund raisers for various groups, and the beer pouring time (plus too many people not getting it filled correctly, or too much foam, etc) I could see the value in this... to a point...

Um... looks like the page is a video... can someone please describe it for the high-speed-internet-challenged ?

EDIT - never mind, search engines save the day laugh

I wonder if a thicker, stouter, hoppier beer will weigh more and cause the magnet to close before it is full?

I agree, but at 6 bucks or more a cup (at a concert) I think they can afford it.

Pretty sure the filling machine determines when the magnet will close and the beer stops flowing, not the magnet in the cup smile.
