If you drink Beck's beer, you could be entitled to a refund.

Anheuser-Busch settled a class-action lawsuit which accused the beer maker of tricking Americans into believing the beer was an authentic German import when it was actually brewed in St. Louis.

"Beck's consumers in the United States knew that the only way to get German beer of such high quality, as boasted about on Beck's packaging, was to import the beer from Germany," the lawsuit said.

The Wall Street Journal says people with receipts would be eligible for a 10 cent refund for every individual bottle purchased or 50 cents for a six-pack. They could get up to $50 back in total. People without receipts could still be eligible for as much as $12.

A final approval hearing on the settlement is scheduled for October.
