A Colorado man who once worked for the company that distributes Budweiser is suing to get his job back after he was fired — for drinking a Coors. Ross Hopkins downed the Coors in a bar. He says the waitress brought it by mistake, after he asked for a Bud. It so happened that the son-in-law of the distributor's major shareholder was sitting at the very same bar and claims he offered to buy Hopkins a couple of Buds. Now it's up to the court to decide.
