I like to have a beer once in awhile, usually Stella Atois or Shiner Bock. I bought a six pack of Stella
over the weekend and I just finished my last bottle and noticed that the bottle seemed smaller. Sure enough it's only 11.2 ozs instead of 12 ozs. I'll have to look at the Shiner bottle next time I buy some and see if they are skimping too. Any of you guys notice a difference in the amount they are putting in the bottles?

It's a European thing. 1/3 of a liter.

I thought Stella and Peroni had been 11.2oz for a while?

They said I was crazy when I said they wouldn’t just stop with roundabouts. Now 11.2oz beers…

I'm pretty sure Stella has always been that way. I don't normally drink beer, but when I do it's Stella.

This. Same bottle as Europe and just put a US/English label on it.

Saves the expense of setting up a whole new bottling facility for 12 Oz bottles, I would imagine.

Stella bottles are 11.2, always have been (since i have been buying it, the last year or so). The cans are 12 oz.

Labbatts has been 11.5 ounces for quite a while. I pointed out to a bud that if you bought a case you were only getting 23 beers. Boy was he pissed after I pointed that out. 😂

I've always thought Miller lite skimped on their beer to the point it was undrinkable......

In the 80s they took over PBR and ruined that as well.

Somehow I doubt you've been to a beer hall in Munich.

It doesn't take much Shiner for me. Their house style could be described as filling, and not in a good way.
